Common Questions – Business Card Success

One of the questions I hear a lot goes like this:

“Hey MileNerd, do you have any tips on getting approved for more Business credit cards?”

Not shockingly, I do have an opinion on this. The first thing that pops in my head is that an LLC helps. I’ve seen this personally and also with many others. Even though you don’t actually need one for approvals, I’ve seen the difference it can make. Remember, the cost to form an LLC will vary like crazy. If possible, save some bucks and do it in a “cheaper” state. No guarantees this tip will help in your case but it made a big difference for me.

And now back to your regularly scheduled recession…

American Status Challenge

Thanks to reader John for sending an interesting link. This is a status challenge with American but seems like it will only work for people with certain corporate email addresses. If you want to do something similar but the link doesn’t work, you should still be able to call for a non-targeted offer.
