But you can set your goals even higher if you combine the AMEX Starwood sign-up bonus with the limited time Chase Marriott card offer.  With the 2 sign-up bonuses, you can earn a total of 75,000 Starwood points after meeting spending requirements.

Then, use the versatile Starwood points to book a once-in-a-lifetime stay at top Starwood hotels.  Or transfer points to airline partners for free flights!

Can Company Employees Apply for Their Own Small Business Cards?

Update:   One or more card offers in this post are no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

Million Mile Secrets reader, Rachel, sent us this message on Facebook:

Can I get a small business credit card to use for expenses at my job?  I have some travel for work coming up and I think I could meet the minimum spending requirement for the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express.  I already have the personal version.

Great question, Rachel!

It’s unlikely you’ll qualify for your own small business card and earn a sign-up bonus as an employee of a company.  Unless you’re an independent contractor and receive a 1099 tax form.

Banks will only extend credit to you for a business card if you’re an owner of a for-profit company.  Employees can only become an authorized user on a business credit card account.

That said, it’s possible to get a small business card with just your Social Security Number if you’re an Airbnb host, Uber driver, sell on eBay, or with many other side activities!

As a Traditional Employee, It’s Unlikely You’ll Qualify for a Small Business Card
