Business Green Rewards Card from American Express Review

The Business Green Rewards Card from American Express is intended for small- to medium-sized businesses. The card earns two points per dollar for qualifying travel purchases on AmexTravel.com and one point per dollar for all other purchases. New Business Green Rewards Card from American Express cardholders earn 15,000 bonus points after making $3,000 in eligible purchases within the first three months of opening an account. There is a $95 annual fee.

  • Issuer NameAmerican Express
  • Credit NeededExcellent Credit
  • Annual Fee$95
  • Regular APR18.99% – 26.99% Variable
  • Penalty APR29.99%
  • Foreign Transaction Fee2.7%

  • Plan to pay your balance in full each month.
  • Will book flights and hotels via American Express with the card.
  • Want free employee cards.

The Business Green Rewards Card from American Express offers bonus points when you book travel on AmexTravel.com, so you should take advantage of that. Otherwise, it might make sense to find another business credit card with a higher base rate or multiple bonus categories for other purchase types. Also plan to earn the 15,000-point welcome offer by spending after making $3,000 in eligible purchases within the first three months of opening an account.

Editor’s Take

It’s tough to make a case for the Business Green Rewards Card from American Express, given the superior bonus rewards and benefits some other business travel credit cards offer. The only category for bonus rewards is travel booked via AmexTravel.com. You have to pay your balance in full each month except for purchases you designate to “Pay Over Time”, and there’s a foreign transaction fee. Before you pay the $95 annual fee, you may want to explore other business cards in that fee range, which can be far more valuable.
