Apply for This Card

The SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express (a NextAdvisor advertiser) is a great, easy choice for companies who want a card with no annual fee that not only earns cash back rewards on all their purchases with no fuss, but also has a 0% intro APR on purchases. (For the SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express' full details on the rates and fees, please visit the terms page.) It also offers the option of making purchases above your credit limit and still getting cash back on those purchases.

Users will earn 5% back at U.S. office supply stores and on wireless phone services purchased directly from U.S. service providers (on up to $50K in combined purchases annually — after that 1% back). They'll also get 3% back on purchases in the category of their choice (on up to $50K in purchases annually — after that 1% back). This is a fascinating option which allows cardholders to pick from eight possible categories: (1) airfare purchased directly from airlines, (2) hotel rooms purchased directly from hotels, (3) purchases from select major car rental companies, (4) purchases at U.S. gas stations, (5) purchases at U.S. restaurants, (6) purchases made in the U.S. for shipping, (7) purchases made in the U.S. for advertising in select media and (8) computer hardware, software and cloud computing purchases made in the U.S. directly from select providers. Choose carefully though — you can only change the category once a year during the enrollment period. All other purchases will earn the standard 1% cash back. Cash back rewards are automatically credited to the following month's statement, so users don't need to worry about remembering to redeem them.

If like most businesses, there is a month where your purchase amount is likely to exceed your credit limit, don't sweat it. The SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express has you covered by letting you buy over your credit limit without paying an overlimit fee, calling in a special request or jumping through any more hoops. Any amount you charge above your credit limit is due in full as part of your Minimum Payment Due the next billing cycle, but it's nice to know the option is there (note: the Min. Due is due 25 days after your previous cycle closes). Plus, you'll earn cash back on all the purchases over your credit limit.

The SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express also features an intro APR on purchases for 15 months. This can come in handy for any small or large purchases that come up, saving you money on interest fees and giving you a little leeway in paying down the balance.

Other card benefits include free employee cards, which can help rack up more cash back rewards, purchase protection and extended warranty. Plus, the Receipt MatchSM feature helps to manage business expenses by letting you add notes, receipts and tags to your card transactions with your computer or mobile phone. It also lets you manage your employee cards buy setting employee spend limits and keeps you in the loop by sending spending alerts when an employee hits their limit.

The SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express is a smart choice for any business looking to earn significant cash back rewards. Add in a 0% on purchases for 15 months, a reasonable ongoing APR and all the benefits of the American Express® program, and you've got a smart choice.
