Business Credit Cards

While Credit Cards can be great for everyday purchases, a Line of Credit can help you cover unexpected expenses, such as emergency repairs. It can also temporarily fill cash flow gaps. A Line of Credit's interest rate may also be lower than a Credit Card.
Business Lines of Credit tend to offer higher credit limits than Business Credit Cards. Business Credit Cards come with interest-free days, whereas Business Lines of Credit don't. While several Business Credit Cards offer rewards, Lines of Credit do not.
Any PenAir Credit, Debit, or Business Mastercard® can be uploaded into your Digital Wallet app.
