Business Credit Cards

Here are the best business credit cards with sign up bonus offers for frequent flyer miles, hotel points, travel and rewards available. Business cards are not just for what you think of as the “traditional” self-employed people. Anyone who sells stuff on Ebay or does little odds-n-ins on the side can apply for a business credit card. You do not need a tax id for your business, you just apply as a sole-proprietorship and use your social. The credit inquiry is the only thing that will show up on your personal credit, but the actual account won’t!!! (Unless you don’t pay it!)
