    In all the coverage of the Sapphire Preferred often find it's lost in the shuffle that the Explorer for Business offer 2x points on gas and dining, unlimited, plus the annual 10,000 point bonus spend threshold which is a 40% bonus if you hit it on the nose.

    For those of us without a lot of hotel spend, and whose main travel $ are on United this works out better than the Sapphire Preferred for straight United miles.

    And the Ink Bold is nice but complicated to calculate the value. So...

    Whipped up a calculator that lets you see which business credit card for United maximizes points for your situation given the crazy dual limits on the Bold...


    Ink Bold + 2x gas dining Explorer + the 10k threshold bonus = easy to get above 2 miles per dollar.

    Hope it's helpful
