Advanta small business credit cards


Advanta began operations in 1951 with $30 from under the founder’s mattress. With a start like that, the company says it knows how to craft a small business credit card program that meets the needs of the entrepreneurs.

The foundation of the product set is the Advanta Platinum Business Card. The Advanta Platinum Business Card features 0 percent introductory APR for 12 months on purchases and balance transfers, no annual fee and one of the largest available credit lines in the industry, up to $50,000.

To meet the needs of those small businesses that want to earn rewards, there are the Advanta Platinum with Rewards Card and the Advanta Platinum with Rewards featuring Bonus Miles. Both of these products allow small businesses to enjoy 0 percent APR for 15 months on balance transfers while being able to earn up to 5 percent rewards in the form of cash back or applied toward free travel.

With the Advanta Platinum Rewards program small business customers can earn 5 percent cash back on purchases of gasoline and diesel fuel, computers and related equipment, electronics, office supplies, telecom, utilities, ground transportation and courier services.
