Company credit card program with cash back/COMDATA

  • 1.  Company credit card program with cash back/COMDATA

    Posted 02-14-2019 18:28
    Good afternoon,

    Please kindly share which business credit card program you are on.  We are looking for getting cash back on fuel cards/credit cards.

    One of the options we are considering is Comdata.  Do you have experience implementing their program?  How is your experience with the virtual credit card?

    Thank you

    We too are looking at Comdata as a credit card solution.  We have a demo scheduled late next week.  I am very interested in the discussion.  Our focus will be reduction of checks, and maximization of the reward back to the company.

    We have been using ConData for a number of years and would be glad to discuss our experiences or if you have questions, both their virtual card and purchase card program.

    Overall have had a good experience.

    We have been using Comdata for years as well (8+) and very happy with them. We did a recent evaluation against some big banks as well and stayed with Comdata. If you have specific questions feel free to reach out.

    There is another solution you might think about at HKA Enterprises.  They have a payrolling and card platform and a payroll funding program that may satisfy your inquiry.  Their primary focus is within construction and specialty trade.

    We had Comdata for years. At first they were great. We even had a designated rep but that was short lived. They went to a 'support' program with a call center.

    We also got a rebate every month. That, too, was discontinued. Worse yet, they started charging us a fee. One month is was over $190. (It was based on gross use, believe it or not. The more we used the card, the higher the fee. Didn't make sense to me.) When we complained enough, they started waiving the fee.

    All of our vendors stopped accepting the Comdata card because the fee to them was too high.

    The straw that broke the camel's back was a $3,000+ airline ticket purchased somewhere in Guatemala that we disputed. They insisted the purchase was legitimate. After months of fighting with them and threatening to take it to the Ohio Attorney General's office, we received a credit for the purchase but they still charged us for interest and penalties incurred during the time it took to dispute it.

    I've known several other companies who have had issues with Comdata and stopped using their card.

    The long and the short of it is, we stopped using Comdata and switched to a regular business card that paid rewards and had no annual fee. There are quite a few out there, if you look.

    I would just make sure they are very clear in the agreement with respect to rebates, rewards, fees, disputes, etc.

    Buyer beware, I always say.

    We have been with them for almost seven years and have been very pleased with the product. We have continually received our monthly rebates as well as had a dedicated service rep to handle any issues that we have had that we could not handle ourselves. I would highly recommend them as they have been a great partner for us.

    We also were with Comdata for both payroll cards and cash-back credit cards.  We were with them for several years but ultimately left them due to poor service and high fees.  Our current bank offered us a credit card with a better cash back program than Comdata which we've been using for several years.  However, we were recently approached by a representative from Capital One named Kelly Caiazza.  Kelly and Capital One offered us an even better deal than our existing bank and Kelly was an excellent representative for Capital One.  Our owner didn't ultimately want to leave our existing bank since we have such a large relationship with them, and our existing bank came back with a slightly more competitive offer.  But I was very impressed with Kelly's professionalism and highly recommend that you contact her.  Here is her contact info:

    ​​We moved from another bank program to Comdata last year and I'd be happy to discuss the process with you as well as our experience.  Overall I'm very happy with the change.
