Two small business credit cards are currently offering the best welcome offers that I ever recall seeing them publish but while both welcome deals are identical, it's the all-around package offered by one of these cards that really catches the eye.
A wide variety of cards offer bonuses or cash back for spending on dining, takeouts, and food delivery services, so I've pulled together a selection of five cards that I think offer some of the best returns available on dining expenditure. With no-annual-fee cards sharing this list with ultra-Premium cards, there should be a card that fits most people's wallets in this selection.
The IHG Rewards Premier Card is a fantastic card to hold if you're a fan of IHG properties as not only does it currently come with a great 125,000 point welcome offer, but it also offers cardholders a number of key benefits that can improve their stays with IHG and, crucially, save them money and points.
The United Club℠ Infinite Card is issued by Chase and is a card very clearly designed with United Airlines' frequent flyers in mind. As the card which earns the most United Miles per dollar spent with United Airlines, and as the card that offers United Club membership as one of its benefits, this is a card that's clearly worth considering if you fly with United Airlines with any great frequency.
I have to confess that this really isn't a critical piece of news that you all need to know but as we have quite a few readers from Hawaii and the West Coast, this seemed like something we should share - the Hawaiian Airlines® World Elite Mastercard® now offers cardholders more free checked backs on select flights and that could be a money saver.
The entry-level Hilton Honors American Express Card doesn't get a lot of attention because it's a simple card that doesn't offer any amazing or eye-catching benefits. That, however, doesn't mean this is a card you should ignore. With a fantastic welcome offer and no annual fee, this can be a great starter card for anyone new to the miles and points game or a great backup card for infrequent visitors to Hilton properties worldwide.
Part way through last month, I mentioned that although I have never been the biggest fan of the World of Hyatt Business credit card, my thinking had shifted slightly and I was now tempted to apply. Well, I took a couple more weeks to think things through and after deciding that the card would be a useful addition to my portfolio, I finally submitted an application last Friday. What happened since is an example of why you shouldn't give up if an instant approval isn't forthcoming.
It was almost exactly a year ago when I finally managed to get my hands on the Ink Business Preferred® credit card and I have to admit that when I saw that I had been approved, I was probably a little more excited than a grown adult should be about something as simple as a credit card.
American Express has announced that it will be holding its annual 'Member Week' later this month and it has put us on notice that throughout the week, holders of US-issued American Express consumer and small business cards will get access to "unique experiences and special offers totaling access to almost $300 in value".
The Blue Business Plus® credit card from American Express is my go-to card for a lot of my non-bonused purchases because of the 2 points/dollar that it offers me on the first $50,000 of spending that I put on the card every year (terms apply) and right now, targeted cardholders can lock in a very nice deal when they refer the card to someone who is subsequently approved.
