Just started business and approved for Capital One Spark Classic

Hey guys just to let you know if you are looking for a starter business credit card Capital One offers the Spark Classic. I just started a business filled as a corporation April 1st, today April 6th I applied and was approved for the basic limit of 500. I did have to enter my personal info and I do have a personal card with them as well not sure if that made a difference or not. The APR is high 22.9% and the limit is low, this card has no annual fee and is advertised as a step up card in reference to the limit. Says that if paid on time for the first 3 months, 5th billing statement will reflect CL increase

 

My personal scores are around 600 give and take 10pts with all three TU being the highest. I'll keep you updated on how much the increase was once I get it.

Current Scores : TU 597 EQ 596 EX 594 (4/1/13)
Goals : Building business and personal credit
Corporate Wallet : Capital One Spark Classic CL500
Personal Wallet : Capital One Platinum CL 300, Wells Fargo Secured CL 400, Matrix Discover Secured CL 300, Westlake Auto loan

Welcome to the forum,

Congratulations on your new card and successful corporation setup. You should receive a letter stating after you complete your credit step program what your new credit limit will be.

FYI

Be sure and pay off before statement cuts if possible because it reports on your personal CR as well and as a result may affect your UTL.

It reports to all 3 business CA's and shows on my personal CR as business credit card.
