The requirement for $1 million in annual sales will kill this deal for the vast majority of readers. If you’re eligible then chances are you can also meet the minimum spend requirement of $25,000. In total you’d earn $1,375 cash back ($375 from the spend at 1.5% and another $1,000 from the sign up bonus). That works out to be 5.5% cash back per $1 spent. The card itself isn’t worth keeping long term as there are lots of other cards with no annual fee that earn at a higher rate than 1.5% cash back but this could be a good option for businesses with $1 million+ in sales to just get the sign up bonus.
