Capital One® Spark® Cash Select for Business: Best all-around card for small businesses

In weighing all the benefits of the business cards we evaluated, the Capital One® Spark® Cash Select for Business card came out as our all-time favorite. To start, there's an unlimited 2% cash back on every purchase, so you can accurately count on receiving a set amount back from expenses each month. Also, you can earn a one-time $500 cash bonus when you spend $4,500 on purchases within the first three months. There's a $0 annual fee the first year, then $59 after that, and that means you'll only have to spend $2,950 each year on the card to break even.

Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card: Best for business travelers

The Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card definitely has the strongest bonus on our list: 80,000 Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 in three months, which we estimate is worth about $1,760. These points can be used with Ultimate Rewards transfer partners like Hyatt, United, and British Airways, among others, at a 1:1 ratio, which could potentially multiply your bonus even further. Furthermore, you'll earn 3 points per dollar on the first $150,000 spent in combined purchases on travel, shipping purchases, Internet, cable and phone services, and on advertising purchases made with social media sites and search engines each account anniversary year. For online advertisers and heavy travelers, this card is a no-brainer. It carries a $95 annual fee.

Capital One® Spark® Classic for Business: Best for fair credit

If you're trying to start a new business, but don't have the best credit history, the Capital One® Spark® Classic for Business card is an excellent choice for you. There's no annual fee, and you'll earn 1% cash back on every purchase. If you were deciding between this card and the Spark Cash Select card above, consider how much you'll be spending on the card each year. If it's less than $2,950, this is the better choice for you.

Ink Business Cash℠ Credit Card: Highest cash back earning

The Ink Business Cash℠ Credit Card is different than its brother, the Ink Business Preferred card, in that it earns cash back rewards instead of Ultimate Rewards points. You'll earn a less-valuable $300 sign up bonus for spending $3,000 in the first three months of account opening, but 5% cash back on the first $25,000 in purchases on the card each account anniversary year at office supply stores and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services. Plus, 2% cash back at gas stations and restaurants, and 1% cash back on everything else. There's no annual fee, making it the best card with no annual fee on this list.
