"The best corporate credit card option for startups"

What do you like best?

Whereas the major traditional card issuers require millions of dollars in revenue before they will issue a true corporate card (one that doesn't require personal guarantees by the company owners), Brex applies common sense and extends a credit limit based on your bank account balance. Additionally, their no fees promotion was another great reason to deploy Brex.

What do you dislike?

Brex has yet to launch a full rewards program (though this is coming apparently). Not having a traditional rewards program has been the only downside.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Brex makes it easy to issue and control cards for your full workforce, where traditional card issuers have all sorts of difficult processes that make it difficult to scale card issuance for fast growing companies. (We used Amex with a previous company and struggled on many of these points.)

"Great tool for expense mgmt., receipt tracking and without a personal guarantee"

What do you like best?

With Brex we're able to spend much less time on expense mgmt. and more time focusing on our core business. Features like seamless receipt capture and spend by employee make tracking purchases very easy. Also it's easy to onboard new employees to our platform. Finally it's great not to have to put up a personal guarantee as a startup. The recent upgrade to the rewards program was needed and really attractive.

What do you dislike?

I'd love to see more analytics like category spend by employee and by vendor, which I expect to come as the company scales.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Expense management - no time spent collecting receipts and monitoring employee spending levels.

Easy payment solution for employees in the field.

What Expense Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"So Far So Good"

What do you like best?

It's very easy to use and the setup support is great. Also the different digital and physical cards is a nice feature for online shopping/SaaS services.

What do you dislike?

The Auto-SMS request for photos of receipts. I actually think it's a good feature but often in low service areas I'll either not get them or get 2-7 duplicate messages leading to confusion. This may be device specific though (LG Stylo 3)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since switiching to Brex we've had ZERO scenarios of a card being declined or suspended for "suspicious" activity. We're a company that puts on 50+ events a month, as well as developing a technology platform and EVERYTHING we do involves at LEAST one vendor that we need to pay. So having a card that's super flexible and allows everyone in the company to be able to get what they need when they need it and fast is important

"A startup helping startups!"

What do you like best?

We chose Brex over a number of more established corporate card options. Ultimately, their promo of no fees for Beta users was a really attractive prospect for us, and we've been very pleased with their user interface so far. I love being able to just photograph my receipts and have them automatically match with my expenses, and I love not having to worry about making payments. Brex makes corporate banking easy!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can be a bit tough to get in touch with support (they're a small team, so it's understandable), and the site can be buggy when logging in. I also wish that we could earn airline miles or other rewards.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use my Brex card for all office expenses, and I no longer have to worry about putting things on my personal card and waiting for reimbursement. It makes my job so much easier.

"Easy easy easy! SO easy, so fun, and so much coffee! "

What do you like best?

I love the fact that I don't need to track my expenses on a spreadsheet anywhere! I love that everyone has a card, and no one feels left or feels the need to report back for ever purchase, nor ask permissions for small things.

What do you dislike?

I don't love the constant texts, I'd rather have a summary at the end of the week. That might help me have a more holistic view of my spending habits. I have no idea right now, unless I go online and check there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the need for multiple people who have different eating and drinking schedules have access to what they need to feel comfortable throughout the day. Coffee runs, and lunch meetings!

We also solve the problem of paying for software, interviews and other office needs independently. Things happen faster.

"Very easy receipt attachment and credit limit increases"

What do you like best?

I really like the text receipt feature. Before Brex I was terrible about attaching receipts to my expenses because I'm too lazy. This increases my compliance by a huge percentage.

What do you dislike?

I'd like points and I'm not sure how to get them

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it. Your compliance for expense reports will go way up, and it will save you a lot of tedious painful time on an expense portal.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I often have purchases of several thousand dollars, so my monthly spending could increase 5K any given month. My manager can increase my spending limit easily in seconds online.

"Exactly what we needed"

What do you like best?

We are not originally from the US, so getting a credit card for us was not that easy. Also all credit card services that we have seen so far do not offer any nice interface to just invite your employees, have live feedback of employee's spend and give us the ability to control that spend instantly.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike for me to be honest.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Credit cards for all employees

- Invoice management of employees spend

- Virtual cards that are instantly available

"Only card that doesn't make you personally guarantee it without a big hassle"

What do you like best?

I have shopped for several credit cards and all but one other required me to personally guarantee the card. The card that didn't require a personal guarantee was a secured card. We raised $2M but I either still have to deposit money or give a personal guarantee. Not with Brex. They periodically check our bank account for underwriting.

What do you dislike?

I don't care for the rewards program. They are high overhead and not applicable to my business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy to charge and collect receipts.

"Easy to use corporate card"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, easy to get corporate card. Ease of access to reports with online access and a separate card number that can be used for online purchases

What do you dislike?

Foreign transactions do not included foreign currency amounts. Cannot create additional, single use card numbers when you may not want to provide your standard card number. Reports aree limited. I would like to see better reporting and the ability to change statement billing dates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use and set up. Provides quick and easy corporate card solution secured by only your bank balance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a corporate credit card not personally guaranteed by an officer and Brex was able to provide that based on our bank balance

"Solves the Credit Card Pain Point for Startups"

What do you like best?

Unlike most business credits cards that give startups a un-workable credit line. Brex is the only company to take in consideration how startups are funded and can provide a credit limit that makes lives easier.

What do you dislike?

The QuickBooks to Brex platform feature has been buggy.

"Super simple and efficient"

What do you like best?

I like that I get a text requesting a picture of the receipt instantly after I use the card, and then I just reply with a quick snap of my receipt and the purchase is verified and categorized automatically. Super efficient and easy!

What do you dislike?

As far as I am aware, there is no rewards or perks for using the card.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Brex allows us to build our credit history as a company, and it makes tracking purchases simple.

"Dead Simple CC"

What do you like best?

Brex is easy to set up. It's dead simple to use. And it gives start ups a resource they didn't previously have.

What do you dislike?

There really is nothing to dislike about the platform. As Brex grows, they'll do more around integrations and awards/benefits. But for now, Brex serves its purpose for it's target market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're a seed funded start up with business credit cards... This previously wasn't possible and makes life much easier in a fast paced environment.

I'm a BREX advocate. Their customer support and ease of use is incredible. Setup is lightning fast, and they understand you and your business and your goals. We specifically were onboarded by Matt, and he is a rockstar. My only complaint is that they don't do banking yet! Haha

"It's so easy, every startup should do it."

What do you like best?

It's quick to sign up, seamless to integrate into financial processes, and has a smooth backend for managing expenses.

What do you dislike?

From a corporate standpoint, nothing. From a personal standpoint, it would be nice if the rewards accrued at least in part to employees.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't think. Just do it. In the unlikely event it doesn't work for you, it's easy to stop and return to your old method.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed an easy way to control expenses. Brex helps us do that.

Nothing! This completely solved our issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Needed a credit card and this is a wonderful low cost methodology.
