You don’t need to be a small business owner to make runs to the office supply store. Households and small businesses alike have needs for basic supplies, not to mention students doing their yearly back to school shopping. (See also: Best Credit Cards for Back to School Shopping)

Although most credit cards that offer rewards on office supply purchases are business credit cards, there are opportunities for regular consumers to earn rewards on office supplies as well. Here is a brief roundup of the best credit cards which offer big rewards for office supply purchases.

SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express

The SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express offers a generous 5% cash back on purchases made at U.S. office supply stores and wireless telephone services purchased directly from U.S. service providers. Earn 3% cash back in a category of your choice from a list of eight, including airfare, car rentals, gas, restaurants, and more. All other purchases get 1% cash back. 5% and 3% apply to the first $50,000 in purchases per calendar year, then 1% applies thereafter. Cash back received is automatically credited to your statement. New cardmembers earn a $200 statement credit after spending $5,000 on purchases within 6 months of account opening; earn an additional $200 statement credit after spending $10,000 or more in qualifying purchases within the first year of card membership. There is no annual fee. Terms apply. See rates and fees.
