The card also lets you choose between a pay-in-full option with a spending limit of up to $250,000 or a revolve option with a spending limit of up to $50,000. If you spend $25,000 in qualifying purchases during the first three billing cycles following account opening, you will earn a $750 statement credit.

This card is aimed at business owners with a fairly high spending volume, when you consider the welcome offer requires spending $25,000 in qualifying purchases during the first three billing cycles. But you’ll have to be mindful of your credit line and ability to repay because there are consequences for paying late or spending above your limit, including late fees, penalty APR and over-limit fees. As for choosing your rewards, keep in mind that redemption values may vary for points and travel. Therefore, the most straightforward choice is 1.5% cash back (with revolving credit).

Editor’s Take

The PNC BusinessOptions® Visa Signature® Credit Card has a lot of options – but maybe too many – for business owners. First, you’ll need to decide if you want to earn cash, points or travel rewards. Then, you’ll have to decide whether you want to pay in full with a higher credit limit or revolve a balance but with a lower credit limit.

It has some excellent tools for managing employee expenses and travel benefits. But chances are, if you already know your preferences, you may be able to find other business cards with higher earnings, easier-to-earn welcome offers and specific benefits aligned with your needs.
