In the midst of the seemingly unending series of massive targeted offers for the Business Platinum and Business Gold cards that we’ve been seeing lately, there is also another targeted offer available for the Blue Business Plus (BBP) card. Those folks that are targeted will earn 50,000 Membership Rewards points after $15,000 in purchases in the first 12 months and an additional 10,000 Membership Rewards points after adding an employee card and spending $1,000 within the first 12 months.  The $1,000 on the employee card will count towards the $15,000 total spend.

P2 was targeted via pop-up this morning, but I found that I was targeted using the same link, even though I didn’t have pop-up on my account.

This isn’t the best offer that we’ve seen for the Blue Business Plus as we recently saw a similar offer for 75,000 MR rewards. That said, it is very good compared to what’s been available historically. The application terms for the offer do not seem to include typical once-in-a-lifetime language, so even if you have had the card before, you should be eligible for the welcome bonus (if targeted).

The Deal

  • Earn 50,000 Membership Rewards points after $15,000 in purchases within the first 12 months after approval for a new Blue Business Plus card and an additional 10,000 Membership Rewards points after adding an employee card and spending $1,000 within the first 12 months.
  • Expires 1/31/23

Quick Thoughts

This is one of the best offers that we’ve seen for for this card. The Blue Business Plus doesn’t usually have a welcome bonus except when applying via a referral link, and then it’s typically only been 10,000-15,000 bonus points after $5,000 in purchases in the first 3 months.

I’m a big fan of the Blue Business Plus. The card earns 2x on all spend (up to $50K in purchases per calendar year). That makes it a terrific “everywhere else” card for people who value Membership Rewards points. Also, it’s a useful backstop card since it has no annual fee but keeps Membership Rewards points alive and transferable to partners. Thus, there’s never any worry about cancelling a MR-earning card and losing points.

By meeting the terms of this bonus, you would end up with a total of 90,000 points in the first year between the normal 2x on the first $15K in purchases and the 60k welcome bonus. That’s effectively 6x MR on $15K spending anywhere over one year with no annual fee…a terrific return for a low monthly spend requirement and no annual fee.
