Let me help you with this. first of all are you an authorizing officer? if you are 1 of these , vice president, president, treasurer, general manager, ceo or business owner if you are? were you the 1 that applied for the corporate card or did 1 of your higher ups sign you up
in the box where it says authorizing officer needs to sighn for the corporate card?
I believe what American express looks at for a corporate card, the owners or ceos the corporation, income, ability to pay American express back and in full
as far as can you have a corporate card should be yes because what you said your paying American Express through the credit counseling service, American Express is getting paid. I know this isn't the best way for them to get paid, but at least they are.
now since your looking at 2 different cards 1 being personal and 1 a company card. if you were going to spend cash but get reimbursed
let's say you stayed at a holiday inn, ate out 5 nights you would put this on your expense account, but let's say you went
to hooters 1 afternoon , then you went to a Mall and bought a dress shirt at Neiman Marcus would you put these 2 charges on your expense account?
so therse personal credit cards and corporate cards. as long as your not the owner, yes you should be allowed to have a corporate card.
if you had asked this question , your company want's you to have more of a business looking card
like the starwood perfered guest or Delta card then this would be a different situation, because even though the Delta gold is more business looking than say Blue cash, clear, Blue , green , gold ect the Starwood and Delta are considered personal cards and then
with your personal card because of your different closed out account and balances I can understand them saying No.
as long as someone else sighns your corporate card application you should be fine.
