Bank of America has increased the offer on the Business Advantage Cash Rewards Mastercard — you can now get $350 cash back after making $3,000 in net purchases in the first 90 days (versus the previous offer of $200 back after $500 in purchases in sixty days). While the new offer requires a lot more spend, the extra $150 back on an additional $2500 in spend over the standard offer gives you an extra 6% back on that spend on top of your normal earnings, which makes this a reasonable offer. Keep in mind that those will bills to pay via Plastiq can take advantage of the current Masterpass promotion that allows for fee-free payments of up to $250 at a time.

This business card might be particularly attractive to some readers as it will not add to your 5/24 count and it earns a decent cash bonus for new card members. Furthermore, the fact that it is a Mastercard means it is compatible with the current Plastiq Masterpass promotions — so if you have bills that can be paid $250 at a time, it would be easy to make the minimum spend without incurring fees.
Those with a lot of money on deposit or invested with Bank of America / Merrill Lynch business accounts can qualify for slightly better bonus categories. Note that the business relationship bonuses only apply to base earnings (1%) rather than the category bonuses. This means you can earn an extra 0.25% to 0.75% across the board. See this post for more details.
The Bank of American Business Advantage Cash Rewards card doesn’t offer compelling spend bonuses in its bonus categories, but it offers a decent return for new cardholders with this newly increased bonus and it has no annual fee, making it an easy win for those looking for a business card with a cash rewards intro bonus.
