Shopping for a Credit Card

Posted on October 17, 2007 @ 7:25 am

Have you ever tried shopping around for a credit card?  It seems that most people just get a credit card at their bank or their favorite department store.  By doing this, you can miss out on better deals or better offers by other financial institutions. 

What I want to do is challenge you to compare credit cards.  Take your card, find out what you get having it and compare it to other credit cards.

What does this do for you?

Not unlike buying a car, shopping around for a credit card not only shows you what is available on the market, but it gives you the opportunity to find a better deal.  For example, perhaps your current credit card is not a cashback credit card.  Would you like to get paid to shop?  You bet you would.

What I am trying to say is that if you don’t shop around, you won’t know what you are missing.  If you want a good place to start this process, check out the Internet.  Not only do all the credit card companies list their information online, but there are many websites online that allow you to compare credit cards side by side – how cool is that?  You can also apply online even at three in the morning.  Take the time, check it out, I am sure your wallet will be happy you did.
