In addition to business and personal cards, American Express also issues corporate cards, like the American Express Green Corporate card and the American Express Gold Corporate card.

Corporate cards are different than business cards because:

  • Corporate card bills are usually paid by the company
  • Employees on corporate cards are not usually held liable for charges on the card (However, if the employee was required to give their Social Security number in the card application, then the employee could be jointly liable for card debt.  Late payments are reported on jointly liable employee’s credit report.)

And you may be able to earn American Express Membership Rewards points on corporate cards.  And keep the points for yourself!

To earn American Express Membership Rewards points, you have to pay $90 to enroll your American Express Green Corporate card or American Express Gold Corporate card.  This is well worth it if you spend a lot on your corporate American Express card for your employer!

However, if your company has blocked the American Express Membership Rewards program, you will NOT be able to enroll your corporate cards.

You can enroll an AMEX corporate card in the American Express Membership Rewards program by calling American Express at 800-297-3276.

This lets you earn American Express Membership Rewards points.  You can use those American Express Membership Rewards points for your personal use.

  1. Do u know if other AMEX branded cards will work? Ex. Macy’s AMEX

  2. Is the $90 enrollment a one time fee? Or annual? If we enroll our card now, do we get points for spending we have done in the past or only on purchases going forward?

  3. Sorry…my mistake. I posted my question in the wrong place.

    I meant to ask if a Macy’s AMEX card would be able to register for Small Business Saturday to get the 3x $10 credits.

  4. Ok…even though I was in the wrong thread…I was just able to verify that Yes, a Macy’s branded AMEX card can be registered for Small Business Saturday – it could not be last year!!

    😉

  5. Approximitely how much would one have to spend annualy to break even on the $90?

  6. Depending on the point value, about $10,000 per year.
