SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express


SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express

For People with
Excellent Credit

The SimplyCash Card is no longer available to new applicants. Current cardholders can continue using it if they wish, or they can upgrade to the American Express® Blue Business Cash Card.

The SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express was designed with the needs of small business owners in mind. It offers cash back for common business purchases, and you as the cardholder can decide one of the categories you want to earn rewards in.

This card is unique because it allows you to spend a certain amount over your credit limit each month. This amount is limited, and it needs to be paid back in full by the due date or you’ll incur the penalty interest rate. The amount you can pay over the credit limit will be determined by your use of the card, your credit history, and other factors.

This card has no annual fee and the cash back is in the form of a statement credit.
