Designed for companies looking to gain better control of corporate spending and increase transparency, the American Express Corporate Purchasing charge card offers tools and guidance to make financial management easier.

Along with 24-hour customer service, you’ll be assigned a dedicated account manager and a corporate helpdesk if your spend exceeds certain thresholds. Potential assistance includes reducing purchasing costs, increasing purchasing efficiency, and insights into process compliance and data management.

Employee cards are categorized so you can assign different cards to different departments in your company. You can choose from individual cards, supplier cards, department cards, and accounts payable cards. You can access employee cards to view transactions, track suppliers, monitor employee spending habits, and much more.

You’ll have access to some integrative software tools like American Express @ Work, ExpenseIt Pro from Concur App, and a web-based Corporate Account Reconciliation process to help reduce manual data entry.

There are a few requirements that would bar your company from getting approved. These include:

  • Company must be U.S.-based
  • Company must have a valid U.S. tax ID
  • Company must have gross annual revenues in excess of $4 million

You’ll get an unknown number of cash back deals/rebates with popular organizations, which may be similar to what the Brex Credit Cards offer.

There is no annual fee for this card, but you will be responsible for some other potential fees, such as an administrative suspense fee of $25, a reinstatement fee of $25, and possibly more.

Instead of submitting an application, you can submit some information to American Express and request a call back. Click the Apply button to learn more and find that form.
