[TX, CA, CO & UT Only] AmaZing Business Credit Card $500 Or $1,000 Sign Up Bonus

Update 10/21/18:

Update 09/23/18: Bonuses are back for 2018! Hat tip to reader BarryEgansPudding. Valid until November 30th, 2018

Originally posted on 10/9/17, reposting on 10/31/17 because the bonus is also available at Vectra Bank in Colorado.


The Offer

  • There are a number of banks that offer AmaZing business credit cards. These cards are currently offering the following bonuses:
    • $1,000 cash bonus when you spend $7,500 or $500 cash bonus when you spend $4,000 within 90 days of account opening. They also have point options as well (100,000/50,000 points).
  • The following credit unions offer these cards:

Card Details

  • Amazing cash & rewards earn at the following rates:
    • 3% cash back on cellular services, internet, office supplies, telecommunications (landline), and cable
    • 2% cash back on airlines and car rentals
    • 1% cash back on other purchases
  • No annual fee
  • 0% Intro APR for 6 months on new purchases

Our Verdict

Standard sign up bonus is $250/25,000 points after $2,500 in spend and these cards have long been listed on our best cash sign up bonus pages, unfortunately it seems not all banks that issue these AmaZing business cards are offering the increased bonus. These cards do not report to your personal report, good for those trying to stay under 5/24. Obviously a great bonus, unfortunately we don’t know a lot about any of these banks so please share your experiences in the comments.

Anyone know the expiration date for application? This one is in my list. Did not find it from the website
Already applied other cards, need to spread out.

The CA one expire 12/31/2017.

Interesting, may apply for one of these. What are the points worth/can they be used for?

They’re offering 3 cards (for TX at least). One is straight points, one is straight cashback, and the other is neither, but it still has the $1,000 cashback bonus after $7,500 spend.

They have some details about their points program at Looks like there’s a tiered annual spending rebate.


“Looks like there’s a tiered annual spending rebate.”

Read the fine print properly, the annual reward bonus does not apply to their business credit cards, so it’s entirely irrelevant to this post.

More importantly, that page doesn’t even explicitly state the redemption rate… :/ I’m assuming that it’s 1 cpp, but that would make it utterly pointless and inferior to straight cashback unless you can use the points for something else. It seems to imply that the points are only supposed to be used for wiping out statement charges though, similar to Arrival+ ‘miles’…

Of course the CA one doesn’t offer the increased sign up bonus but TX and NV do.

Sure it does…

Special Introductory Offers

Earn 50,000 points when you spend $4,000 in the first 90 days.1


Earn 100,000 points when you spend $7,500 in the first 90 days.1

dude, he said the CA one….

That was from the CA one…. one click away from the before-edit link.

I can confirm CA does have the bonus. I was just in there Friday and saw the marketing placement offer 100k while making a deposit.

I see the same thing..

Anyone applied in CA through calling the Commercial Bankers? Would be interested to know if that will avoid having to apply in branch.

I applied/was approved in CA by emailing a banker via the website. Never went into the branch at all. Except today, when I tried to set up online banking, and they were baffled at what “online banking for an account that’s not a deposit account” is. Very…odd experience. The rep then told me I should open a checking account with them…and, with a coy wink, promised I wouldn’t regret it.

I guess it’s…THAT kind of a bank.

I’m curious as to whether the Nevada State Bank business credit card will show up on personal credit reports. I guess I may have to attempt to be the guinea pig on this one and find out.

If you do that, please report back. TY

I am patiently waiting to finally get back under 5/24, but would def try to pick this up if it doesn’t count towards the Chase limit?

If anyone (Doc?) has any guestimates with this, please share too…

Also, if you have one about the probable expiry of this offer (in other words, expectation to wait 2+months to get under 5/24 and pick up Chase cards, and still have this offer be available afterwards)?

Happy about even any eductated guesses… 🙂

Sorry, but I don’t have anything to report. I went into the branch with the application filled out, but I decided to ask the banker a couple of questions as I’m trying to get under 5/24 myself. Despite me explaining several times, she didn’t seem to be able to tell the difference between an inquiry showing up on my personal credit report (obviously) and the account itself showing up if I were to be approved. That didn’t inspire much confidence in me to submit the app so I left without applying.

Please do let us know too!

I only see a 25000 bonus points after $2500 spend at CB&T

That’s what the link shows but if you click the AmaZing cards link on the left on the cb&t site, they have 50k offers for three versions.

I’m cannot link it, but the CB&T’s business cc comparison states $500 for $4k spend in 90 days for AmaZing Cash and 50k for $4k on AmaZing Rewards.

Has anyone experienced their business vetting practices, since it seems like I have to walk into a branch.

Earn $500 cash back when you spend $4,000 in the first 90 days.1


Earn $1,000 cash back when you spend $7,500 in the first 90 days.1

0% introductory APR on purchases for 6 months, 15.25% variable APR after that.2

It is a business card but does anyone has the datapoint on if it’s going to affect the Chase 5/24? I think it’s pretty important information.

Do I really need to have a address in one of the States to apply?


I applied to Zions (emailed app) from California because I couldn’t (and still can’t) get the $1,000 offer to show up on California Bank & Trust.

Received the following email:

“Thank you for applying for the California Bank & Trust AmaZing Cash Business Visa. Unfortunately we were unable to locate an existing relationship with California Bank & Trust for TaxID XX-XXXXX47; in order to proceed with the application process please submit the attached application to a Personal Banker or Loan Officer at your local Zions Branch. The branch will also be your primary resource for questions and updates during the application process.”

Thinking I should visit a CBT branch.

Well thats disapointing as I was just in Houston for business 2 weeks ago. After looking at the application, looks like the online link directs you to a paper application. I do not see any fine print anywhere about restrictions to location. Im alittle confussed as it looks like it originally states you can send the paper application by email or snail mail (step 8) then in step 11 it suggests to drop off the application at your local branch. Im gonna call tomorrow about this question since it has different delivery methods for different steps. Personally, I think if you already have Amegybank then you can probably send it by snail mail if your not near a local branch. However, Im sure when I talk to them tomorrow they will want me to come in provide all the necessary documents in front of them for them to make official copies for their system and to market their other business products. I’ll keep my fingers crossed though.

These banks are all owned by the same bank holding company, Zions Bancorporation out of Salt Lake City. They have a few other regional brands, but a quick search didn’t turn up the increased sign up bonuses on their Amazing Rewards cards.

I tried to see what personal credit cards they have, and the online application for a personal CC has the following disclaimer:

«Applicants must reside in the servicing area of Amegy Bank (Texas) or have a current checking or savings account with Amegy Bank in order to submit an application for a credit card.»

Given the above, it’s quite likely that they won’t consider your CC application unless you are already their customer.

Does this count against 5/24? AmegyBank in particular if it matters.

Re: CA App

Does the info you provide actually lead to an application?

From what I can tell it looks like it’s just a form for a banker to contact you.

Waiting for dps. Seems a little too good to be true…

Indeed — looks like the form just collects info for the banker to contact:

“Thank you. We’ll be in touch soon!
This confirms we have received your inquiry and one of our experienced bankers will be in touch with you within 24-48 hours.”

Wonder if a CB&T deposit account will be required, or other “business” documentation…

Applied yesterday afternoon (10/10) at an Amegy branch in San Antonio (which is where I live). Applied as a sole proprietor using my name as my business and no business documentation was requested. The application is a bit confusing to fill out, was nice to fill it out in person with the banker guiding me through it. He said I should hear back within 72 hours.

Do you know which credit agency they pull? Thank you.

The banker told me the would likely pull EX (I’m in CA) that was 7 days ago and no HP yet.

Keep us posted! I would also be interested to know which bureau(s) they pulled

Amegy pulls Experian.

Scoobs…did you hear back yet with your application? I called into a Houston branch and asked several questions about the application process and was able to submit a application but wanted to know your results. Also do you have an account with Amegy or had to open a business account up during this CC application? Thanks

No relationship with Amegy. Got approved yesterday with a $10k CL (10/18)! Experian report pulled on 10/17 (by Zion’s). Did have to provide 3 months of bank statements (after they pulled my credit report) for the business (just used by personal checking account that also has my business / rental property deposits / withdrawals), and then was approved after providing that info.

Scoobs, thanks for the DP. I just submitted my application and will provide a DP on the Amegy Business CC. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Scoobs, is this showing up as a CC on your personal credit report? It may be a bit early, but I’d just like to know if it affects 5/24 status. I’m also in SATX.
