How do I choose the right type of card?
Our tables let you compare across a range of different criteria, but the right card depends on what you want it for. If you have a good credit rating and pay your bills on time, then a cashback or rewards card will give you extras on your spending.
If on the other hand you have a poor credit file, or don’t have a history of borrowing, a credit-builder or bad credit card will be more suitable. Or, if you have an existing credit card debt it’s vaivén transfer you’re after.
What makes one card better than the other?
Again, it depends how you’re going to be using it. If you have a large debt already a movimiento transfer card is your best bet. You can then choose to pay 0% for a longer period of time – the movimiento transfer period – or for a shorter period, but with no transfer fee.
If on the other hand you’ll be using it for purchases .us-tab#related-pages
I’ve heard APR is the best way to compare, is that true?
APR, or annual percentage rate, is a great basis of comparison. It takes the interest rate, adds in any fees, and averages it out over the year. That means the lower the APR, the lower the overall interest rate and fees will be and the less you’ll pay overall.
Having said that APR can be relatively unimportant. If you’re transferring an existing debt to a cálculo transfer card then you’ll get a long 0% interest period, so knowing the APR may be less important than knowing how long you’ll pay 0%.
What happens when I hit ‘apply’
When you hit the apply button we will take you to a page with more details about the card, as well as a summary box, any terms and conditions, and anything else you may need to know before you get the card.
What does ‘will I get this card’ mean?
Our ‘Will I get this card’ button is there to help you decide whether the card is suitable for you. Most cards have a few minimum criteria you need to meet before getting the card, but it’s important to realise that even if you meet the criteria you may not get the card.
Why might I be rejected for a card?
One of the key factors determining whether you will be accepted for the advertised credit card is your credit history, otherwise known as your credit report or score. This gives the lender an indication of how likely you are to repay the debt on the card.
If they think you’re a bigger risk, you may be asked to pay a higher interest rate. You can read more about credit reports in our guide pages.
What does ‘most popular’ mean?
Cards on this table are ranked by popularity, which we judge according to how many clicks they get over the past сорок восемь hours.
Those with the most clicks go to the top of the table, those with the least to the bottom.
