I set up a business checking account the other day with BB&T. They offer a business credit card, but you have to have a credit history to qualify. I want the card to keep all my business expenses separate from personal expenses, like fuel for my mowers vs. fuel for my personal vehicle. I've never financed anything. My dad paid cash for a lot of my equipment and I'm paying him for it, but that doesn't get reported to a credit score company. What should I do to get some credit? How much credit history do I need to qualify for a business card? The bank offers a student credit card (I'm in college right now) that I would qualify for if I had a personal checking account with the bank, but all my personal accounts are at a state employee's credit union (both my parents were/are public school teachers/administrator). I don't want to go in much debt just to get a credit score since I still owe my dad some money, and there isn't really anything else I need to buy right now. What did you young guys do to build a credit score and get business credit?
