When you're applying for a business credit card, they're looking at the type of business you have? Is it consulting? Is it a trucking business? E-commerce business? They look at the age of the business. Anything over two years you're eligible. The last two things they will look at is the relationship you have with that bank and your business credit score.

There's specific business cards that are 0% interest for the introductory period.
For some of them it’s six months or there’s nine months. Most of them are at 12 months 0%, and there's some that go up to 18 months of 0% interest. After that introductory period, it goes up to the normal credit card interest rate, which is between 16 and 25% depending on your credit profile.

It’s important to build a relationship at Chase and Bank of America. They're the most relationship based banks and they give out very high limits. The relationship should not only be on the personal credit cards, but also in order to open business checking accounts with these banks.
