Business Credit and Charge Cards
Discover how business credit and business charge cards may be utilized to manage cash flow, track business expenses and support a range of business reward incentives including earning points redeemable for dining, shopping, entertainment, travel, or to reinvest in your business, as well as automatic savings opportunities.
A business credit card is a product that can help facilitate business spending on a routine basis at an annual percentage rate (APR) when making payments over time.
A business charge card is a product that can help facilitate business spending on a monthly basis without applicable finance charges when paid in full each month.
A charge card has no preset spending limit. No pre-set spending limit does not mean unlimited spending. Purchasing power adjusts with your use of the card, your payment history, credit record, financial resources known to the charge card provider, and other factors.
A unique feature of the charge card is that it offers purchasing power that can adjust as your business evolves. A powerful benefit of the charge card is that it can help you to increase control over your expenses without incurring longer term debt.
