Earn 50,000 points Membership Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in purchases on the card in the first 3 months of card membership with The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN. This is one of the best offers we've ever seen on this card (we saw a 75k point offer in the past but it required you to spend $10,000 to get it, making this offer a much better value). You'll also earn 3X points on airfare purchased from airlines, 2X points at US gas station (up to $100,000 in each category per year), then 1 point. The bonus and $5k in spending will get you 55k points, which I value at over $1,000! Better yet, if you hit the $5k on airfare, you'll net 65,000 points. MR points are super flexible: you can transfer them into many travel rewards programs. You get a full slate of Amex benefits like extended warranty and return protection. There is no fee for the first year ($175 otherwise). Note: as discussed in DMSL, business cards can be used by individuals. Most business activity, be it consulting, selling on eBay or running a lemonade stand, is not done via incorporated companies. If you don't have one, select "sole proprietorship" as the company structure and enter your name as the legal name and social security number as the Tax ID number.
Use this link to apply for the Capital One Cash Credit Card and get a $100 bonus when you spend $500 in the first 3 months. Plus, you'll get 0% intro APR until June 2014 on purchases and balance transfers. This matches the best offer we've seen this year. You'll earn 1% cash back on all purchases, plus a lucrative 50% bonus on the cash you've earned each year. Best of all, there is no annual fee. The fee for balance transfers is 3%, but there is no fee to get 0% on purchases for a year. There is no cap or expiration date on the cash back, and you can even set up automatic redemption.
Sign up for the Capital One Venture Card and get 10,000 bonus points when you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months. Plus, you'll get double miles on every purchase (including the $1,000 spent towards the bonus), which means you'll get $120 to use towards travel. Miles can be redeemed for any travel expense, including airfare, hotel stays, and car rentals, and more importantly, there's no cap on how many you earn. There's also no annual fee in the first year (after that, it's $59) and no foreign transaction fees.
