Butcher? Baker? Candlestick maker? If you own a small business with employees — or just earn extra income on your own doing something like walking dogs, driving for Uber or selling crafts on Etsy — you are likely grappling with the nasty business environment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s no panacea, but there are some tools out there for you.

This card offers a great introductory offer — on both balance transfers and purchases — to those who have great credit. It could be the tool to help you get through this rough patch. Check it out.

US Bank Business Platinum

Why it’s awesome: The US Bank Business Platinum card offers a 0% APR on all balance transfers and purchases for the first 20 billing cycles. As of publication that translates to December 2021 before interest will be due. (After that, the rate jumps to 9.99%-17.99%). That kind of reprieve could help get you to the end of the virus crisis — maybe there will be a vaccine by that point?!

This card comes with a couple of other great features:

  • No annual fee
  • You’re protected against unauthorized transactions by “zero fraud liability.”

If you’re a small business owner, we are on your side.

Whatever you need in a credit card — balance transfer, low interest rate, travel rewards points, you name it — you can find it in our credit card search tool. Click here to explore.
