American Express and Amazon on Oct. 23 launched a new a small-business card that offers members the choice to earn extra cash back or limited-time no-interest payments on select purchases.

The Amazon Business American Express Card offers incentives based on your Amazon Prime membership status. Cardholders who are eligible Prime members (including Business Prime) get the sweetest rewards: 5 percent cash back or 90-day interest-free payment terms on U.S. purchases at Amazon Business, Amazon Web Services, Amazon.com or Whole Foods. For non-Prime members, it’s 3 percent cash back or 60-day interest free payment terms for the same purchases. (The card is also available at Amazon.com.)

All card members get 2 percent cash back on purchases at U.S. restaurants and gas stations, and on wireless telephone services purchased directly from U.S. service providers, and 1 percent cash back on all other eligible purchases.

The card also offers members access to line-item details on U.S. purchases made on Amazon Business, such as cost per item and quantity.

Upon sign-up, new members will also receive a $125 Amazon gift card if they have Amazon Prime; all others will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. Cardholders can use their rewards for purchases at Amazon.com and Amazon Business, or redeem them for a statement credit.
