As you know we consider getting a Staples account an important step in business credit building. Here is a common confusion among some: When applying for the Staples card – remember it is easier initially to get a Net 30 pay account instead of a revolving account. That is the commercial billing account that asks you to pay the complete balance at the end of every 30 days. When you do have this account and use it for a couple of months it is easier to change it to a revolving account. In a revolving account you can pay a minimum every month if you want.

As we indicated on the site, Staples is a citibank backed card like Shell gas card. Of course with Staples you can get really creative. All that will make it easier for you to get a Citibank (or citibank backed) unsecured business credit card.
