American Express is out with an interesting new welcome bonus on the Blue Business Plus and Blue Business Cash credit cards.

Amex Blue Business Cash

New Blue Business Plus and Blue Business Cash Welcome Offers

The new offer on both cards is Up to $300 in statement credits. After your first purchase with the card, you’ll earn $100 to spend at: Dell, DocuSign, and FedEx.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

So, essentially, you won’t get any points or cash, but after just one purchase of any size, you “unlock” $100 to spend (with the spend rebated as a statement credit at each one of the merchants: Dell, DocuSign, and FedEx.

Blue Business Plus

Both cards have historically not had any public welcome bonus offers. But via Refer-a-Friend links, we’ve seen up to 20,000 Membership Rewards points (though it’s typically 10,000 Membership Rewards points) on the Blue Business Plus and up to $500 on the Blue Business Cash.

That said, the refer-a-friend offers have been replaced by this same offer. So whether you apply via an affiliate link, a public link, or a referral link, this will be the offer for several months.

Both cards also have a 0% intro APR on purchases for 12 months from the date of account opening at this time.

Bottom Line:

For many people, waiting for this offer to end and then using a refer-a-friend link may result in a better offer. But if you need to apply now, you may find these offers useful. My own DocuSign account just renewed for $130 (very basic plan) and it’s not that hard to use $100 in FedEx or Dell either.

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
