A solution for a problem that shouldn't exist (getting a reasonable corporate credit card)

Extremely positive, and I recommend it to all of my friends starting/running companies. They also send a hand-written card with about 30 signatures when we raised a round, which was a small touch but great (my bank didn't do this...)

Pros

Without a doubt it is the ease of use. A couple of my favorite features...

1. Integration with QuickBooks.

2. Invoice management. We swipe the card, get a text asking for a photo, which when we provide it automatically matches to my chart of accounts in QBO. Similarly, you can also forward invoices to [email protected] and it does the same. This makes invoice management much, much better.

3. Instant approval for employee credit cards, with limits I can set.

4. Clean intuitive website

5. Solid travel booking system, impactful rewards (we get 3% back on lab supplies, a major expense) and a huge number of perks with other startup friendly companies.

Cons

There were some things we wanted visualized on the portal early on, but when we made the suggestions they were actually super quick to change them.

Brex Gives us Better Control and Insight into our Spending

I like Brex but recognize there are still substantial usability issues. Expense management is difficult to navigate, and Brex certainly does it better than many (or most) of its peers. Brex has given a lot more control over our spending without question, but we have developed so much complexity in our spending that the administrative burden has become overwhelming.

Pros

The trips functionality in Brex is fantastic. We travel a ton and constantly have team members on the road. The trips functionality allows us to invite them to a specific trip and attach those expenses to a given budget. This has really helped us better track our expenses on a trip/customer basis.

Cons

Some of the user interface is a bit clunky and allows for user error. We have around 150 employees, many of which travel frequently. We try to put in place guardrails for their spending using Brex, but sometimes run into issues. This usually comes from employees selecting/spending from the wrong budget or having to restrictive controls on a trip spending.

Brex closing accounts that it deems not big enough

Reviewed on 2022/06/16

We've been using Brex for about a year now and went with them because they advertised being a bank for small business startups. A couple weeks ago they sent us a notification that we need to change routing numbers. So we had to coordinate with our payroll, Expensify, Quickbooks, and numerous customers that pay us via ACH. After doing all that, today they sent us an email that they are closing our account on Aug 15 because we aren't a big enough account for them. We deposit 30-40k every month so even though we're a small business it's not like we are inactive nor have we ever had any overdrafts. So now we are going to have to redo all of that with a new bank. So just know that if you decide to bank with them you should expect at any time they will close your account even if you're in good standing.

Pros

The free ACH and wire transfers were the main reason but we also liked the partnerships they had

Cons

They are closing accounts because despite advertising as a bank for small business, they only want customers that are doing millions.

Easiest Expense Management

Reviewed on 2023/04/01

Pros

Brex does not require a personal guarantee from founders to obtain a credit card, which can be beneficial for startups and companies with limited credit history. The ability to create multiple digital cards is super convenient for contract employees. You can also set a spending limit and have full visibility of the spending for each active card, right from the dashboard.

Cons

The credit limit is variable which is at times good but the way it is calculated is opaque and leaves you guessing how much you have available to spend. It certainly cannot be your only form of payment, you need to have a backup payment method ready especially when you are traveling.

My life has gotten so much simpler overall using Brex. Before I had to juggle six or seven different cards and log into several different banking websites (with all the security headaches and verifications). Now it's all in one interface. This is SO. MUCH. EASIER. for me.

Pros

With previous credit cards if there was any fraudulent activity I had to cancel the entire card and request a new one, which caused a 5-10 day delay for using that replacement card. Because Brex's software alerts me every​ time a purchase is made, I can be assured the card charges are valid. And if for some reason there was a hijacked online website where my card was used, I can immediately replace the online card without​ invalidating my physical card. I have also used the "take a picture of your receipt" feature that saves me from carrying around pieces of paper for in-person receipts.

Cons

The desktop version gives me much more information than the mobile app. On the mobile app I can only see my own transactions, not everyone on my team. Neither version tells me the total outstanding balances by employee. I get a grand total of all spending, but when it's paid off I don't get an updated total. I'm sure that will be coming someday (soon, I hope!).
