Overview

The Gold DeltaSkyMiles Business Credit Card from American Express often has a compelling signup bonus, but past the first year I don’t recommend this card for most people.

After the first year those who fly Delta often will probably get more value from the Delta Platinum or Reserve card.  If you do not fly Delta often, consider cards with points transferable to airlines (e.g. Amex EveryDay, Chase Sapphire Preferred, Amex SPG, etc.), or those in which points can be used to pay for travel (e.g. Barclays Arrival Plus, Capital One Venture, etc.), or even cash back cards (Citi Double Cash, Fidelity Investment Rewards Visa, Discover It Miles, etc.).

The personal version of this card is almost identical, but the business card has a few advantages:

FM Mini Review: Priority boarding, and free checked bag make this a good option for Delta flyers who do not have elite status. However, those who can make use of an annual companion certificate would do better with the Delta Platinum card

Applying for Business Credit Cards

Yes, you have a business: In order to sign up for a business credit card, you must have a business. That said, it's common for people to have businesses without realizing it. If you sell items on eBay, for example, then you have a business. Similar examples include: consulting, writing (e.g. blog authorship, planning your first novel, etc.), handyman services, owning rental property, etc. In any of these cases, your business is considered a Sole Proprietorship unless you form a corporation of some sort.

When you apply for a business credit card as a sole proprietor, you can use your own name as your business name, use your own address and phone as the business' address and phone, and your social security number as the business' Tax ID / EIN. Alternatively, you can get a proper Tax ID / EIN from the IRS for free, in about a minute, through this website.
