Do you want an easy way to separate business from personal expenses? Want to earn a little bit back every time your business spends money? How about expense management services — want a hand organizing and preparing for tax season?
If you find yourself nodding along to any of those questions, a cash back business card might be missing from your life. Just like regular consumer/personal credit cards, business credit cards offer rewards, benefits, and handy tools to give you a birds-eye view of your spending. Many provide insights to help make your business more efficient, like analyzing spending patterns to show when and where employees make purchases.
Business cash back cards work like personal cash back cards. They’re simple: spend money, earn cash back, redeem cash back (usually for statement credits). Rinse and repeat all year long, and you’ll probably accrue a healthy reward balance.
There are also business credit cards that earn points instead of cash back, and these can be just as valuable. See the best business credit cards of all kinds right here.
If you don’t like what you see here, keep in mind that you can use personal cards for your business if you so choose — you just won’t get the business-specific features. This could be a good plan if you’re not spending in typical business categories, or if you’ve got your eye on certain features. You’ll find some great personal cards here that could be the right fit for your company:

Cash back business cards work pretty much like any other cash back credit card. The process is simple:
Just like any other credit card, you have to keep an eye on your statements, and to get the most out of your card be sure to pay your statement balance on time each month to avoid interest. If you accrue interest charges by carrying a balance, or other fees, you’ll negate the cash back you earn.
