Expert review

You may want to consider the HSBC Mastercard BusinessCard® Credit Card if your business already has accounts with HSBC. Not only does this card help simplify monitoring individual card statements for each employee, but it allows you to earn reward points on purchases if you enroll. Note that enrollment comes with additional fees that aren’t disclosed on the HSBC website.

Card benefits

  • Intro APR period on purchases.
    Use your first 12 months of card membership to make purchases with a 0% intro APR. After that, your rate reverts to 8.99% variable.
  • Individual billing statements.
    To simplify credit card monitoring, you get individual statements for each card owner at the end of the billing cycle.
  • Optional rewards program.
    Enroll in the rewards program to earn 1x points on all purchases. You can also earn 25,000 bonus points when you sign up for the rewards program. However, enrollment comes with additional fees that aren’t disclosed on HSBC’s website.
  • No annual fee.
    Use the card and its perks without paying an annual fee.

What to watch out for

  • Credit card eligibility.
    To apply for the card, your business must be based in the US and your annual sales must be up to $5 Million.
  • Can’t apply online.
    You can only book an appointment.
