There are some business credit card issuers that will not report your credit card activity to consumer credit bureaus: Bank of America, BBVA, Citi and Wells Fargo. When it comes to consumer credit cards, most issuers report to at least one bureau (if not all three). While there may be one or two that don't, they don't really advertise that.
If you want to use a card, but not have it stick around on your report, become an authorized user. The card will get reported while you're using it, but you can ask to be removed as an authorized user by simply calling the credit card issuer.
If, after removing yourself as an authorized user, the account still appears on your credit report, you can dispute the account to have it removed. The entire history of the account will drop off your credit report and will no longer be used to calculate your credit score.
