So, my second business is new and I am in the process of establishing credit. It's a nonprofit org. I am trying to stay away from leaning on my personal credit, so I haven't dived into many PG required ops. I am also trying to figure out how much credit I will need with my looking to raise about $2M in donations over the next 18-24 mos to get things going.

 

I decided to open a Wells Fargo biz checking/savings and a biz secured card. Banker told me that in roughly 6 -12 mos, you usually get upgraded and they refund you the security deposit. You can also sign up for the rewards program and the AF is waived the first year. Awesome sauce! So I am reading through all the paperwork and I come across a 'Nonprofit notice and disclaimer' which, in part, states: "...If the applicant is a not-for-profit organization recognized by and in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service, the personal guaranty of the signer is not required, and the personal guaranty paragraph below shall have no force or effect."

 

Wondering if anyone else has worked on establishing credit for a NP and if so, has this no PG thing always been around?

Why would you need a personal guaranty for a secured card anyway?

Seems silly right? Not many secured biz cards out there and I believe they all require a PG.

The question is do they still pull your credit to qualify you for the card?

I was told they would still pull credit. This was before we did the paperwork and confirmed my NP status. I wasn't required to sign the PG docs. I haven't seen a hit yet, but it's only been a day. The banker I worked with just told me the process and when to look for the card. I did a cash advance and deposited the funds into a biz savings. She then processed the app and I signed the auth to pull the funds over to the new card. It said pending and will be about 3 days before the card funds and then another 5-7 days to receive.

I opened a secured business credit card with WF a year ago, and last week received an offer to upgrade to a un-secured card and receive a refund of my collateral account.

Nice! Congrats GFT!

 

So it took a full year? When it unsecures, does any amount unsecure?

 

Is it easier for a 1k cc to unsecure rather than a 25k secured cc?

GFT, did you increase your secured limit at all, and if so how much? And do you mind sharing what rate you were given for the unsecured offer?

Did it report to the biz credit? Equifax or Experian?

      Hi everyone. I am trying to build my business credit, so I have been applying for net 30 accounts. I was approved by
       
      Uline, Office Max, Staples and Amazon. I received a decline letter from Home Depot. Should I call and fight it? Do I call the number on the decline letter? Let me know.
       
      I still have an application pending with Grainger and Jiffy Lube Fleet.

      Hello Everyone:
       
      Many years ago, when the crisis occurred, I owed Amex 24k. I was going through so much at the time that I am not clear whether I paid that debt. I am almost positive that I did, because I remember the lady lying to me and telling me they were gong to resend my card. I called Amex the other day because my mom was going to add me to her card and they said "No". When I called the collection agent answered, said hello and automatically informed me that I still owe them 24k and that because the statute of limitations has passed they can no longer collect. (hell of a hello). Anyhow, the collection agency at the time was Nationwide Credit. I want to call them to see if they have record of me paying. My fear is that if I didn't, they are going to start bothering me. Should I call? Would like to hear opinions.
