I love collecting miles and points to get Big Travel with Small Money, but I also like getting cash back!

The American Express SimplyCash Business Credit Card is currently offering a $250 statement credit after spending $3,000 in 3 months, but this offer is only good until April 28, 2014.  Usually, this card has no sign-up bonus, so this is a good deal!

Earning cash back with the American Express SimplyCash card gives you lots of flexibility because you can use the cash for anything, not just travel related expenses.  Also, it currently has no annual fee.

You don’t often see such a good sign-up bonus on no-annual-fee cards.

You get:

  • 5% cash back at office supply stores
  • 3% cash back from a category you can choose (like airfare, gas stations, or dining)
  • 1% cash back on everything else
  • Terms & limitations apply

Which Cash Back Category Would You Choose?

A Good Card to Keep

Because it has no annual fee, this is also a good card to keep open for a long time.  Here’s my post about why everyone should have a no-annual-fee credit card.

Having another American Express card can get you an extra statement credit on AMEX Small Business Saturday.  Last year, you got a $10 in statement credit for each American Express card you used at a local small business.

The SimplyCash card also lets you earn American Express OPEN discounts and bonus points  at 7 popular merchants including Hyatt, Hertz, and FedEx.  This is a good way to take advantage of the OPEN program without having to pay an annual fee.

This could be a good card for folks without firm travel plans and want the cash back.

Bottom Line

You get a statement credit of $250 on the American Express SimplyCash Business Credit Card when you spend $3,000 in 3 months, but only if you apply before April 28, 2014.

This is a good deal for a card that charges no annual fee and earns up to 5% cash back.

I’ve already gotten my $250 statement credit!

  1. Darius – thanks for this update. Does the minimum so ending need to be hit by April 28, or merely application/receipt of card?

  2. @Darius, in the recent OfficeMax Visa promotion, I noticed that 5% cash back did not apply to my AM SimplyCash card. Thanks.

  3. Daraius, did you try using this card to purchase Visa GCs at Staples? If so, did you get 5%? Thx

  4. Just received this card today. They actually sent it by express mail got it in 3 days after being approved. This is actually my first AMEX business card so I’m excited to start using it.

  5. I also purchased gift cards from Office Depot and Staples and haven’t received 5% cashback.
