Now this one was truly a surprise. For much of its history, the Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express didn't offer any welcome bonus. Sometimes, it was possible to earn a 10,000 point bonus through a referral from a friend and then spending $3,000 in the first three months. In fact, there is still no public welcome bonus. However, we are now seeing reports that Amex is targeting certain customers for a 20,000 Membership Rewards point bonus after spending $3,000 in three months. That's a pretty sweet deal if you're targeted because there is also no annual fee to this card.

What's great about the Blue Business Plus? Well, you would earn 2X Membership Rewards® points on everyday business purchases such as office supplies. The double points is applied to the first $50,000 in purchases every year. If you cross that spend threshold, each dollar would earn you 1x point. Furthermore, the card offers a 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers for the first 12 months, then a variable rate between 15.24% to 21.24% based on your credit score.
