American Express Reward Cards for Business Customers
The American Express Reward Card typically has a lower upfront purchase fee. However, a service fee of $2.50 starts on the 13th month after issuance, so if your plans are to use the cards right away the Reward Card may be the best solution for your needs.
The American Express Gift Card is an excellent solution if you plan to use the card(s) over an undetermined length of time, thus avoiding the possibility of having the balance of the card subject to monthly fees after 12 months.
There are many factors that can determine the final cost, including program volume, logo requirements & fulfillment options. The chart below shows standard prices for bulk orders through our B2B Concierge:
|# of Cards||Card Fee|
|1 – 100||$2.50|
|101 – 500||$2.00|
|*** All orders are subject to applicable taxes and shipping and are subject to change.|
|# of Cards||Shipping Fee|
|1 – 100||$20|
|101 – 200||$40|
|201 – 300||$60|

A $2.50 monthly service fee will be assessed against the Card balance starting 13 months (1st day after the completion of 12 months) after Card issuance. If the balance is less than $2.50, then the remaining balance will be assessed. Reward Card should therefore be distributed upon receipt.
