How to Apply for the Evans Bank Small Business Rewards Credit Card


The Evans Bank Small Business Rewards Credit Card is similar to the Evans Bank Small Business Edition Credit Card, except for the fact that the interest rate is slightly higher and the fact that this option features a rewards program. The APR is assigned based on your credit score at a rate that will range from 12.24% to 22.24% (APR is subject to change). Regardless of what your assigned APR is, you will receive a 0% APR on purchases and balance transfers for the first six billing cycles from the date of account opening. This credit card’s rewards program is standard, earning cardholders one point for every dollar spent on all purchases. Your accumulated points can be redeemed for gifts or travel rewards. Another benefit of this card is that there is no annual fee and no additional cost for employee cards, which makes it an inexpensive credit option for small businesses. If you feel that the Evans Bank Small Business Rewards Credit Card meets your business’ credit needs, you can follow our tutorial below which walks you through all the steps of the application process.

Before you submit any of sensitive information in your application, we recommend that you review the card-issuer, TCM Bank’s privacy policy.
