Small-Business Credit Cards

Consider Your Local Bank

Check to see if your local bank carries its own Visa or Mastercard. "Having a credit card from your bank allows you to consolidate business at one place," says Chanaud. "The personal relationship you have with bank employees may also make the application process easier. I get two or three calls a week from bankers who are calling for their clients and want to know what I can do for them."

Your banker is also familiar with both your business and the credit card being offered, and can often tell you if the product meets your needs.
