OVERVIEW:

Jason A. Duprat, MBA, CRNA, Healthcare Practitioner, and Host of the Healthcare Boss Academy podcast, presents the pros and cons of having a business credit card. If you choose to have one, he provides tips on how to use the card wisely.

EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Jason shares an example of someone who funded their startup with a business credit. He changed his mind on the business and presumed he wouldn't be held personally responsible for the debt. He was wrong.
  • Jason explains the differences between a small business credit card and a corporate credit card. A corporate credit card is more difficult to set up but it holds only the business liable for expenses versus the person. 
  • There are revenue requirements to set up a corporate credit card – $4million in gross revenue. Only C corps and S corps can apply – not LLCs. 
  • The great value business credit cards provide is their point system. Jason's Chase Preferred card offers 3 points for every $1.00 he spends. For example, if he spends 10k in a year, using the 3-point system, that's 30k points or $300 in cash value. 
  • Divide your credit card points by a hundred to get an estimate of its value in gift cards or if you were to cash it out.
  • Set up reminders for your credit card payments to avoid paying interest. Jason advises not to trade interest for points.
