The good thing is that as a business Amex card it does not report to personal credit bureaus (as long as its keep in "good standing"). So you can at the very least walk right up the credit limit and not worry about how it affects your "utilization" and thus your credit score. (As mia said, you may or may not have the ability to even go beyond your credit limit.)

Because of this, a low credit limit on a business card (used for the same stuff a personal card would be used for) is not nearly as bad as a low credit limit on a personal card.
Gotcha!

You don't need to wait 6 months. I was approved for $6k and immediately requested an increase to $20k on the same day, which was approved.

Not so good, it also says:
"Thank you for your interest in this offer. At this time this offer is no longer available."

too many applications especially from non businesses ?
maybe one particularly large 'group' of applications ?

Perhaps too many applications from existing cardholders. Converting customers earning ~1.5 points/dollar to earning 2 points/dollar wouldn't be the primary objective. Might need to try a different type of new account promotion.

Well, I am a new customer for MR Points, as I have been with Amex for years but with the SPG Cards, which I love, and of course, my personal favorite for the last 5 years, the OBC !!!

So I think this card was a no brainer with NO Hard Pull and not showing in my Credit Reports. Like my OBC, it is a no annual fee keeper. Now I can patiently wait for Amex to target me for 100K MR cards in the next couple of years

Besides the obvious 2x MR on 50k spend, the greatest part about this card is the no AF and being able to transfer the MR to partners. Very underrated perk of this card.

The Amex offers seem to have started slower than any other card for some reason.

I have the Blue Business and my offers are comparable to my other cards, MR, Business and otherwise.
