I finally found the first two, and added them to post 1 above: Korean Airlines (Skypass) from US Bank, and Asiana Airlines from BofA.

Also, I'm not sure whether any FTer will be intersted, but Spirit has a business card too.

instead of waiting for someone to confirm, i checked at local branch and it is still there. i don't think it is going away. they were well aware of the card.

concur.

One thing I would add -- if the inspiration for this is 5/24 (it's why I've been eyeing more biz cards lately), you might want to note which issuers report biz cards on personal credit reports.

Chase doesn't ignore biz cards because of some policy on their side, they're just unable to collect data on it since most major issuers don't report the cards unless there's an issue.

No idea why this didn't occur to me before. Capital One has two "miles" cards that absolutely show up on your CR:

Spark Miles for Business
Spark Miles Select for Business

These are really supposed to be the business version of their Venture card (same points program). Note the language that the card is for "business owners with excellent credit". I expect that these only show up on your personal CR.

Agreed. We need to create a DEFINITIVE list for which issuers report biz cards and which don't. And also, what if someone applies for a biz card as a sole prop using their SSN? Do we have any data points that those don't always go into the personal credit report? I don't see why they wouldn't.

That's one reason I stopped the list (at least for now) with cards that earn (a) real airline miles, (b) real hotel points, and (c) transferable points which can be turned into one of those. Capital One doesn't issue any such cards, they only issue what I call "cash back cards with the cash back limited to travel", which they misleadingly (for marketing purposes) call "miles", plus non-disguised cash back cards.

Yes, Capital One is the main bank that reports its business cards to the "big 3" bureaus (EQ, EX, TU).

That's what most FlyerTalkers who apply for business cards are, I would think, given that so many FlyerTalkers apply for business cards without really having a business.

So I don't see why people wouldn't be screaming left and right that it's not true that business cards (other than Capital One) don't report to the big three (EQ, EX, TU) credit bureaus (for cards in good standing) if what you suggested was the case. Yet I've never seen anyone speak up and say "but that business card does show up on my credit report".

Instead, everyone (including tons of people who monitor their credit reports, including tons of people who apply as sole proprietor) seems to agree that Amex, Barclay, Chase, Citi, and US Bank business cards (in good standing) don't show up on credit reports, but Capital One business cards do show up on credit reports.

I don't know why that's the standard among most banks, but it sure seems to be.

I just added Best Western to the list. It wasn't mentioned in the BW cards thread's wiki (until I added it just now), but I happened to be reviewing recent posts in that thread and saw someone mention a business card, so checked out the link in that thread's wiki, scrolled down, and there's business card.

Ink Business preferred is new card on the horizon.

80k signup bonus.

I hate 5/24.

This thread should get a sticky or add the list of business only cards to the master list under it's own header.

Do we know for sure that Barclays Biz cards don't count for 5/24?

This link says they do:

That link has an incorrect summary! It links the Doctor of Credit page about the same topic as its sources, but that page only says one datapoint seems to say a Barclay business card reported back in 2011 to TU, while several other posters say they didn't report:

http://www.doctorofcredit.com/which-...-cards-report/

So IMHO the link you gave should have at most put Barclay into a YMMV category, not into the same category as Capital One which everyone knows reports business cards to EQ/EX/TU.

But there don't seem to be a lot of Barclay business card datapoints. Perhaps not that many people apply for Barclay business cards? It certainly doesn't help that the US Airways business card went away a couple years ago and that while Barclay says they're going to introduce an AA Avaitor business card sometime this year, no one has seen a trace of an application so far.
