Just started a business, Should I get CC?

I just started a business not too long ago (less than a month ago). Are there any friendly cc that are friendly to businesses that just started? Or would it better to wait some time before I apply?

Current Credit Score: Equifax 644 | Transunion 672 | Experian 679.

Re: Just started a business, Should I get CC?

All big lenders will require a PG for CC's 

Chase, Amex and Citi 

 

So it will be based on your personal credit and scores 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

You should be able to get the Capital One Spark with your current scores.

Credit Karma uses Vantage 3.0 scores - not Fico scores. No lenders that I know of use Vantage scores, it's usually always some version of Fico scores. With that said, my Credit Karma scores are much lower than my actual Fico scores (20 points lower on TU and about 10 points lower on EQ). So your true scores could be higher (or lower) than what you are seeing on Credit Karma - you really need to know what your real Fico scores are before I can give advice (you can purchase them here on MyFico). However, I will say that Capital One has approved people for their Spark Classic card with pretty low scores. But find out what your real scores are so you don't sell yourself short on which card you decide to app for.
