American Express®/Business Extra℠ Corporate Card

To be eligible for an American Express®/Business Extra℠ Corporate Card:

  • Your business needs to have existed for at least 12 months.
  • Your business must have grossed at least $4 million in your last fiscal year.
  • You need a business address outside of your own home.
  • Your business cannot be classified as a sole proprietorship.

When applying be sure to have information about your company’s organizational structure, audited financial documents, and tax information. You’ll be guided through the application process by a representative.

Insider Tip: You may be able to get the annual fee on this card waived. Just call customer service and ask nicely to have it waived, explaining that you’ve been a good, responsible customer for some time. Or, if you’re thinking of canceling the card, you can let them know that you’d consider staying with them if they waive the fee. In some cases they may offer a different incentive, like bonus points.

And if you’re in the military on active duty, you can submit an online request for SCRA benefits, which will probably include having the annual fee waived.
