The latest card that comes with similar, if not better, features is the Advanta Platinum 90-Day Interest Free BusinessCard. The 90 days grace card that has just been released by Advanta allows cardholders to defer their payments by up to 3 months. Advanta makes it clear on its credit card application page that the 90 day offer is not an introductory offer, which means that you should expect no major surprises on your bill year after year as far as this feature is concerned.

Unless you haven't been watching TV or reading newspapers for a while, you have probably heard of the hyped up Plum card from American Express. The Plum card used to be the only card that allowed small businesses to manage their cash flow operations more effectively by delaying their debt payments by up to 2 month (with no interest). The Plum card was so popular and hyped up that a lot of small business went out of their way to get their hands on it and take advantage of its benefit. So it is no surprise that other card issuers are taking a page out of American Express' book to introduce cards with similar features.
