The Business Green Rewards Card from American Express® OPEN is a great tool for business owners who need some extra capital as they grow their business and enjoy being rewarded for their hard work.
Along with a flexible spending limit that grows with your business, you can earn Membership Rewards® points on business and travel expenses.
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.
