Review

If you’re just starting out and you aren’t sure what your spending patterns will be, the Ink Business Cash Credit Card may be the flexible rewards card you need. It’s among our favorite business credit cards.

This Chase-issued card offers a generous 5% cash back on the first $25,000 spent per account anniversary year in combined purchases at office supply stores and on cellular phone, landline, internet and cable TV services. You’ll earn 2% cash back on the first $25,000 spent in combined purchases each account anniversary year at gas stations and restaurants. All other purchases earn 1%.

Worried about start-up costs?

The 0% introductory APR for the first 12 billing cycles will give you a chance to hit the pause button on big bills and buy a high-ticket item without racking up the interest charges. After the intro offer expires, your APR will be 15.49% – 21.49% based on your creditworthiness.

And, earn a one-time $500 cash bonus once you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first three months from account opening. Among the top business cards on our list, that’s the best sign-up bonus on a card that charges no annual fee.

But if you think you might use this card for international spending or travel, don’t. Use one that doesn’t charge a foreign transaction fee.
