The Plum Card® is quite possibly the most unique card in the lineup of American Express business credit cards. As a full “No Preset Spending Limit” card (these used to be called charge cards by American Express, but that term is no longer used), it is really a great choice for extremely high spenders.
1.5% is a solid cash back rate for a card with no preset spending limit, though if you have spend that falls into the right bonus categories, you might want to first take a look at the American Express® Business Gold Card which is also a No Preset Spending Limit card but offers 4X Membership Rewards points on the top two categories you spend on each month from the following categories: Airfare purchases directly with the airline, U.S. online, TV and radio advertising purchases, U.S. Computer Hardware / Software / Cloud Computing purchases, U.S. Gas Stations purchases, U.S. Restaurants (including takeout and delivery), U.S. Shipping purchases – up to a combined total of $150,000 per calendar year.
(Note that the Plum Card earns cash back, not rewards points).
Now if your business is often a bit behind with cash flow (perhaps all of your client payments come more than 30 days after you need to make your own payments, then the 60 day payment period offer on this card (instead of the early pay discount – i.e. the cash back) could really be a massive benefit. So while it’s a niche card product, it can knock the ball out of the park for certain business owners.
