Update: This offer is currently no longer available.  Please check the Hot Deals tab for the latest offers.

Monday (earlier in the day rather than later) is the last day to get a $250 statement credit when you sign-up for the American Express SimplyCash business card.

You’ll get the $250 statement credit after you spend $3,000 in the 1st 3 months.  But you have to be approved by April 28, 2014.

This is a better deal than the usual offer of NO sign-up bonus.

Link:   My review of the American Express SimplyCash

The American Express Simply Cash is a cash back card, which is great if you want flexibility.  You can use statement credits toward any purchase, including non-travel spending.

You earn:

  • 5% cash back at office supply stores and wireless services
  • 3% from 1 of 7 categories (includes gas, airfare, hotel, etc.)
  • 1% cash back on everything else

I like this card because you can customize your 3% cash back category to best suit your spending.  And you can change the category once a year if your spending habits change.  Plus, you get 5% cash back on office supply stores and cell phone expenses.

Which 3% Cash Back Category Will You Choose?

This card has a 2.7% foreign currency fee, so it’s not great to use outside of the US.  That said, it’s nice to see these perks on a fee-free card.  Many business cards have annual fees of $50 to $175.

You can read my review of the American Express SimplyCash and see if it’s a card that makes sense for you.  I applied for the card earlier this year and have already gotten my $250 statement credit.

And if you think you might not be approved, read my post on ways you might qualify for a business credit card.

Bottom Line

The $250 statement credit after spending $3,000 in the 1st 3 months on the American Express SimplyCash card is ending.  You have to be approved by April 28, 2014, to get the credit.

This is a good deal for a fee-free card.  And you can customize your cash back category to suit your spending.

I don’t know if this deal will come back, so if you’re thinking about applying, today is your last chance to get the $250 credit.

does this card offer delta skymiles point or membership rewards points?

Has there been any consensus/finding as to whether GC purchases from office supply stores qualify for the 5% bonus? If so, great! If not, am I correct in assuming that GC purchases (anywhere) at least count towards the min spend level.
