I was wondering what banks/credit cards (regional/national) you all have found to fit your needs the best when it comes to convenience, ease of use, reporting, rewards, etc as they relate to your real estate businesses. I am currently looking at the small business checking accounts from Capital One and Chase. It looks like they both have a monthly maintenance fee (that can be waived under certain conditions). I wanted to see what other BP members are using and get any recommendations.
I'm surprised no one has responded to you (that I see at least). I'm wondering the same thing and am going to poke around some more on the forums. Let me know if you have figured anything out about regarding this topic.
@Mark Hamdan This is a great question. I use Wells Fargo for my business accounts, and I use Chase Ink for my business credit card. I'm happy with both, but I would love to see if there are some better options.
I like the convenience of Wells Fargo since I have to visit the branches often. Their online system is fine. However, I don't get copies of cancelled checks without going in and asking for them. I haven't needed them until recently when my CPA was trying to unravel my spending.
Chase Ink gives 5% cash back for my cell phone and internet bills. That's less than a $20/month benefit, so if someone has some better ideas, I'm all ears!
