We’re looking for the Best Use of Membership Rewards Points by a Small Business, an Award Presented by American Express.

Small business credit cards represent a great way to make your company’s everyday purchases work for you. Whether you’re getting cash-back to reinvest in your business or collecting points to redeem for your next vacation, there’s no shortage of ways to maximize your business expenses.

If you feel like you’ve mastered the art of earning and redeeming rewards as a business owner, we want to hear from you! We’ve partnered with American Express to hear about how our small business readers are making the most of their Membership Rewards points. This is your chance to share your success stories and be selected for the Best Use of Points by a Small Business award in the process (more on that below).

To participate, please complete this short Google Form, including your correct email address and full company name. We will be reviewing all submissions with American Express and will pick the business that’s getting the most from the credit card(s) it is using. Submissions will be judged on creative and practical uses on how you reinvest your points into your business – whether it’s purchases for your business or something special for your employees. If you are selected, you might hear from American Express to use your story, so please make sure the information you provide is accurate. Please note that to be considered you must be 18 years or older, based in the U.S., have a Membership Rewards eligible American Express Business Card and provide details on how you use your points for business.
