NorthStar,

Great topic! I would like to hear some good cards also.

Have a business card from a credit union. Its ok.

No cash advance fees! decent interest.but other than that nothing really special such as employee caps on the cards which would be nice....

Re: Best Business Credit Cards?


I used to do amex and they are good. Had a tough time paying the annual fees.Now use visa.Capitol One is good, so is Chase. I don't carry balances,have the full amount deducted automaticly from my account monthly so interest rates and fees don't matter to me. I'm looking only at the perks, cash back,awards,etc... Just switched to a patriots reward Visa card that lets me earn tickets etc.. (all used for bussiness purposes only of course).GM card is good for buying vehicles,Problem is I max out too fast,So I max that out at 5% reward then switch back to my main card. Phil

Amex

customer service is second to none. Use points to pay for vacations or by stuff through out the year. after a year or two they offer alot of great features and additional products

We also have the Amex card and it definitely is the best card to go with, of course there is that yearly fee but it is worth every penny.

I second that on the Advanta Card if you're looking for a no fee card that is accepted at more locations than the amex card

By offers, I mean cash back, awards, best percentages back I guess. I too do not care about rates, as I never carry a balance, always pay on time. Perhaps I'll try the Capital One card......

I mentioned Advanta because I would use it if I did not use Amex. I use Amex for every business purchase that I can and fly free a few times a year with the points. One trip in December, two this month and I am planning one for next month.
