This charge card offers small businesses that make big purchases in specific categories the flexibility of choosing which category receives the highest (3X) reward points.
Review of the The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN
While you have to pay your balance in full each month, the flexibility afforded by charge cards -- mainly no pre-set spending limit -- can be extremely valuable for small businesses. The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN comes with a $175 annual fee (waived for the first year) but offers 2-3X Membership Rewards® points in 5 categories. Plus, you get to pick which category will receive the highest reward points: either airfaire, advertising, gas, shipping, or computer purchases.
The Bottom Line
This card is a smart choice for businesses making large business purchases in specific categories. For even more travel rewards, we recommend the Business Platinum Card ®.
