American Express Business Green Charge Card Review

The American Express Business Green charge card has very limited benefits to justify its $95 annual fee.

The card only earns 2x points on AmexTravel and 1x points everywhere else. A better option is either the Chase Ink Business Preferred ($95 annual fee) or American Express Blue Business Plus (no annual fee).
