Annual Fee: $0 first year; $95 thereafter (free employee cards)
Earning: 2x points in the 2 categories you spend the most each month (automatically calculated; list of all 48 categories); and 1x everywhere else.
- Equivalent to 2% cashback on the top two categories and 1% everywhere else (3% and 2% cashback your first year). This card is uncompetitive past the first year considering there are so many no annual fee 2% cashback cards for all purchases, and the American Express Blue Business Plus card (2x American Express points, which I value as equivalent to 4% cashback)
