Which AMEX Card is right for my business?

I own a small business that spends $50k-$75k each month on our AMEX credit cards. We were previously using Platinum exclusively until a customer service representative encouraged us to switch to business green rewards. I'm not sure why but we made the switch. We carry no balances month-to-month. I want to use whichever card will accrue MR points the fastest! When I used AMEX's side-by-side comparison tool, I was more confused than ever- different types of rewards points and programs seemed like apples to oranges. I would love some guidance from the resident experts!

Thanks everyone!

For my former business, which we sold over a year ago, are business cards were plat amex and the plum card... then the premier gold and the plum card... 1.5% is pretty good... and gold got us some good MR rewards...

All American Express Business cards which participate in Membership Rewards have essentially the same rewards formula: $1 = 1 point.

The Gold card offers a 25,000 point bonus after spending $50,000 per year, but this is a once-per-year reward. You don't earn another 25,000 when you reach $100,000, etc. However, you might be able to earn multiple bonuses by applying for several separate Gold card accounts, but this may be impractical if you need a large number of cards on each account.

The Platinum card currently offers 5,000 bonus points for each month that you spend at least $10,000, but this is a temporary promotion set to expire in February 2011.
