Five years ago I added the Amex Blue Business to my wallet when it was offering an outstanding 10x points on dining. I’ve kept it, although never used it, primarily for the referrals, and the fact that it had no annual fee it wasn’t costing me anything. This year…I finally decided I’d product change it to an Amex Blue Business Plus so that the referrals I’d earn would be 55k points vs $550 – I extract far more than a penny a point, so the points are worth far more than the cash.
By the way, you should be putting your referrals on our referrals page so you can max out too.

For the record, I already have one Blue Business Plus so this will be the second in my wallet, and the Blue Business Plus has no annual fee. Today…I pulled the trigger on an Amex chat and it was super quick and easy. Here’s how it went – you should be able to do the same thing should you want to product change.
