American Express introduced today a new business product, the Amex Blue Business Cash credit card. Now the links for the Amex SimplyCash Plus card points to this new product. I reached out to American Express and they have confirmed that Amex SimplyCash Plus will no longer be available as of July 18, 2019. But they also said that the new Amex Blue Business Cash card is considered a brand new product. So it’s not related to Amex SimplyCash Plus at all.
“The Blue Business Cash Card is a completely new card. Current SimplyCash Plus Card Members will not be impacted by the introduction of the Blue Business Cash Card. We will stop acquiring new Card Member accounts on the SimplyCash Plus Card on July 18. Existing SimplyCash Plus Card Members will still be able to add employee cards to their existing account. Current SimplyCash Plus Card Members can call to product transfer to the new Blue Business Cash Card if they would like.” Brett Sussman Vice President, Global Commercial Card Lending at American Express.
I’m sure most readers would consider the Amex SimplyCash Plus Card a superior product, so it’s at least good news that if you have it, you can continue using it with it’s current earning rates and also add employee cards if necessary.
