Best Business Credit Cards for Small BusinessesIf you have a business, chances are good that you have expenses that need to be made online, or expenses which require a credit or debit card. Business credit cards are easier to use for expenses such as travel, rental cars, and similar expenses because they don’t tie up funds held in your business checking account. As long as you have the cash flow to pay the bill each month, credit cards are a great way to go.

Business credit cards are also a great way to track and categorize business expenses, or monitor employee spending. If you are looking for a new business credit card, then be sure to check out these offerings, all of which offer some form of a rewards program, including, cash rewards, rewards points, travel points, and more.

I have a Starwood Preferred Guest and have been most impressed with it. I would recommend it to anyone.

Plus American Express has great customer service.

AmEx does have great customer service. I had their Gold Business card for a couple years, until I decided I didn’t want to pay the annual fee (I was able to get it waived the first two years). :)

Nice article! For travelers Citi is way to go, I recommend it to everybody. Thanks for the references!

we are trying to get to 1 million miles on AA to achieve lifetime gold. i was told the starwood card will transfer points to AA. how many dollars can you run through the card on an annual/monthly basis ( is there a limit ?) With the business version can i have all of my employees funneling their spend into my account?

Herm, I recommend contacting AmEx for details specific to your card and company. There are some cards out there that may have different terms, depending on when you became a card holder. Your customer service rep should be able to answer these questions. Best of luck!

I have recently taken advantage of a lot the deals out there for Credit Cards. My girlfriend lives across the country and so finding cheap tickets is a challenge. If you look carefully there are many cards willing to give you free miles/tickets if you only use your card. I say take advantage of these offers so long as you don’t fall into debt or mess up your credit score exponentially!
