Right now, Barclays has elevated welcome offers on all four of its business cobranded credit cards. One of these is the best offer we’ve ever seen, and two of the offers are worth over $1,000 each.

Here’s a look at the current offers on Barclays’ small business credit cards and the benefits offered by the cards.

AAdvantage® Aviator® World Elite Business Mastercard®

RYAN PATTERSON/THE POINTS GUY

The AAdvantage® Aviator® World Elite Business Mastercard® earns American Airlines miles. It’s also a World Elite Mastercard, which provides additional benefits on the card.

Welcome offer

New applicants can earn 80,000 American Airlines miles plus a $95 statement credit after spending $2,000 on the card in the first 90 days. The card has a $95 annual fee, but the statement credit will cover that, making the card free during the first year (if you hit the minimum spending requirements). Just remember that the annual fee does not count toward this threshold.

This is the highest bonus that this card has offered, and we haven't seen it since the spring. According to TPG’s valuations, the 80,000 AA miles are worth a whopping $1,416.

Bottom line

It’s always great to see elevated welcome offers, especially for cards targeted toward small businesses. You may be surprised to find out that you qualify for a business credit card if you’re a freelancer, independent contractor or even make purchases that your job reimburses you for on a regular basis.

However, if you’re interested in any of these cards, make sure to check out our guide to credit card application rules to maximize your chances of approval.

In terms of value, the Aviator Business Card’s welcome offer is worth the most right now, but any of these cards could be great options for your business spending. We don’t know how long these offers will last, but they won’t stick around forever.
