New Biz Cards!

I've been building a small company for some time, getting all ducks in a row, etc. Lots of work but its fun and getting it all set up on the side while still working my full time job. 

Anyway, on the day I filed my LLC with the state I also applied for my F-EIN from the IRS and immediately went to work building my business credit. 

 

Same day I was instantly approved for a Capital One Spark buciness cash back and an AMEX corporate gold card. Not bad for the first hour as an entity. For those looking to start out with biz credit I just wanted to share my experience. 

Gardening spree went on hiatus but I think it paid off. Now back at it!
Building slowly but surely. Thank you to all members of this community for all the invaluable advice.

Re: New Biz Cards!

Just keep in mind that Capital One Spark reports to your personal credit each month and don't think it reports to any business credit reports but I don't monitor mine really so they might now.

Re: New Biz Cards!

Yes, I believe spark reports to both personal and business reports equally. AMEX biz/corp cards report strictly to business reports unless you become really delinquent and they have to come after you
