Do you have small business income or work as an independent contractor? Do you have side hustle either by yourself or via a company like Uber/Lyft, Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Airbnb, and so on? You are eligible to open a small business credit card, which offers the benefit of keeping your personal and business expenses separate. You can use the rewards earned for a company retreat (even if you’re the only employee) or simply to cover some business expenses. If you are not a corporation or LLC, you can apply as a sole proprietorship, with your name as the business name as your Social Security number as the Tax ID number. I did this for years successfully before incorporating my business.

Credit card companies are in heated competition right now, and they are offering strong perks and $500+ value for a single new card during the first year to try out a new card. These are the top 10 credit card offers that I would apply for in October 2018, if I didn’t already have most of them. Please see links provided for full details.

This is a companion post to my Top 10 Best Credit Card Bonus Offers for personal cards. Note that small business bonuses are on average even higher than those on consumer cards.

Note: Certain Chase cards have a “5/24 rule” which is an unofficial rule that they will automatically deny approval on new credit cards if you have 5 or more new credit cards from any issuer on your credit report within the past 2 years. This rule applies on a per-person basis, so if you are new, you might want to start with those Chase cards.
