Business Platinum Card®Expert Rating:
Also, remember that this is a charge card, not a credit card. There is no set spending limit, but the balance must be paid in full each month. Balances can’t be carried over each month the way they can with traditional credit cards. If you need that option, but still want to carry American Express, think of applying for the SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card, which has no annual fee.
