Best card for fuel and Home Depot

Postby ckkiw8 » Fri Jun 21, 2013 3:40 pm

Hi,
I was asked to find a new credit card for our company. The card is primarily used for fuel and Home Depot (and a few other hardware stores). Any recommendations for maximum rewards? Doesn't have to be a business card, does it?
Thanks!

Credit Score: 830

Do you have one to suggest? There really isn't one that I'm aware of that doesn't require some hoop jumping to meet both requirements.

Hoop jumping required, but I suggested two different cards that may meet OP's needs.
