The Citi Costco Anywhere Business card offers great rewards on gas, travel and at Costco. If you travel often and enjoy shopping at Costco this card is for you!
- Credit: Citi will only approve you for one business card every 95 days
- Step by step guide how on to apply without an LLC or C-Corp
- You must have a Costco membership: You need to have a Costco membership. Don’t have one? Create one here.
- Not reported on personal credit reports: Citi does not report business credit cards on your personal credit report
- Credit bureau: Citi will usually pull your Experian credit report, sometimes Equifax, and sometimes Experian and Equifax (depending on your state, search your state in our credit card database)
- If you freeze your Experian credit report you can sometimes request the reconsideration department to pull your Equifax credit report
- Combining same-day credit inquiries: Credit inquiries for all Personal Citi cards will be combined; also, credit inquiries for all Business Citi cards will be combined. Credit inquiries for Personal and Business card applications will not be combined. Note, you cannot get approved for more than one Citi personal card within 8 days (Combining credit inquiries will only make a difference when declined for your first try and you want to try a new one)
