Fly business class to London twice a year

When you stack up the rewards and savings against the cost of paying your bills with Bluechain, you’d have to be crazy to pay your bills any other way. Over the course of a year, a small business with expenses of $20,000 per month could realise over $13,000 in value, with enough reward points to pay for two business class tickets to London.*

Cost vs benefit

The benefits easily outweigh the cost, typically yielding a net benefit between 5% and 8%, depending on the size and nature of the expense (see table below for estimated ranges). There are no joining or setup fees, you just pay a convenience fee, which is more than recovered through reward points earned on the transaction See: How much are my reward points worth?, the tax savings, and early payment discounts. There are additional savings, not shown in the table below, on interest charges and administrative costs when paying by card (Deloitte reports that paying with card is 72% more efficient than manual processing) and automatic posting and reconciliation in accounts.
