Considerations:

This card attracts with its benefits for businesses. It also offers a sign-on incentive and reward redemption on American Airlines and its partners. Businesses want to take advantage of features like employee cards with spending limits, quarterly reports and year-end summaries, and double miles on common business expenses. Other popular business cards, like the Spark cards from Capital One, do give business reports and double miles, but they don’t offer the same VIP treatment for travelers and don’t have the Personal Business Assistant that this card does.
