In addition, cardholders get access to useful tools for small business owners and entrepreneurs. Here’s what you need to know.
Amex Business Gold Card Refresh – New Categories, Statement Credits, and Design
The newly refreshed U.S. American Express Business Gold Card holds the value cardholders seek. According to an American Express survey, 86% of small businesses surveyed expressed they find the most value in flexibility, convenience, or a wide array of benefits. The recently added enhanced benefits check off every box for the most sought-out business credit card qualities.
“The refreshed Business Gold Card helps our Card Members spend more time on what’s important: running their business,” said Anna Marrs, Group President of Global Commercial Services and Credit & Fraud Risk at American Express. “Whether they’re making purchases for business needs like advertising, wireless bills, technology expenses, or on office supplies, booking travel, or dining with clients, the refreshed Business Gold Card will help small businesses unlock value.”
Earn Rewards with Versatility for Your Business Spending
With the U.S. American Express Business Gold Card, small business owners can earn 4X Membership Rewards® points for necessary business spending. Part of the reward enhancement includes two new reward categories. In addition to earning 4X Membership Rewards points on advertising, gas station purchases, and dining, cardholders can now earn maximum rewards for three new categories.
The new reward categories include U.S. purchases made from electronic goods retailers and software and cloud system providers. Cardholders can also earn 4X Membership Rewards points on wireless telephone service charges from a wireless service provider in the U.S. The third new category is a transit category for travel via trains, taxicabs, rideshare services, ferries, tolls, parking, buses, and subways. All other eligible items will earn 1x point.

Statement Credits and More!
Earning reward points for additional business spending is exciting. However, there are more benefits to be thrilled about, such as the two new statement credits. U.S. Business Gold Card members can access. Cardholders get a $240 Flexible Business Credit, which earns them $20 in statement credit each month for purchases at FedEx, Grubhub, and Office Supply Stores.
Additionally, card members can take advantage of the new Walmart+ membership credit, valued at $155 a year. Members will receive a monthly statement credit to cover the Walmart+ subscription. A Walmart+ membership has many benefits. Such as cash back on travel, free Walmart grocery delivery, free shipping, gas savings, video streaming with Paramount+, and more.
Furthermore, there is a new way to earn points for travel. When cardmembers make an eligible purchase through AmexTravel.com, they will earn 3X Membership Rewards points. So, if your small business requires lots of travel, this would be a great way to rack up points. Moreover, Amex has added the popular rose gold design to the mix. Cardholders can opt for the gold card or the rose gold color.
The Amex U.S. Business Gold Card has additional existing features and tools for small business owners, including built-in digital payment services, cashflow tools, and more. Part of the new set of amplified benefits includes cell phone protection, which is the equivalent of cell phone insurance. Cardholders can get reimbursed for repairs or replacement costs due to damage or theft. The maximum reimbursement is $800. Terms apply.
