Any cards for someone with NO CREDIT that don't require an initial deposit??

By: CompareCards | Nov 6, 2015

Hi Miranda,

We have an entire page dedicated to the best credit cards for people with no credit history. Be sure to check it out! I would recommend starting with the Credit One Bank Credit Card.

How does the Delta Skymiles American Express card compare to other credit cards?

2 Replies

By: CompareCards | Oct 21, 2015

Hi Bob,

If you frequently fly on Delta Airlines, or are trying to earn Skymiles towards free flights on Delta, then the Delta Skymiles American Express is an excellent card to have. However, since the rewards are limited to Delta Airlines, it's not the most flexible travel rewards card. Credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred or the Capital One VentureOne allow you to redeem your rewards in a number of ways so you can avoid black out dates. Check out this blog post we wrote about the different types of travel rewards credit cards.

By: Juan Camilo Macaya | Oct 26, 2015

I just got the delta Amex card and i think that i'm staring to regret it. You are extremely limited with the points(you can not really redeem it on anything other than delta without getting super skimped) and it is really only useful if you fly with delta frequently(I don't). Also the points are really worth around half. So when you get the 30,000 bonus points, they really only cover like 150$ worth in practically anything, it sucks. The only reason im regretting is because it has an annual fee of 95$, otherwise i would not mind at all.

The american express true earning costco card is a great card. I do not have to pay any yearly fees. The best thing about it, is you get cash back for all your purchase on the card plus you also get cash back for purchases at costco. so its like getting double the money back, example if you use it at the costco gas pump you get 3% for using the card from american express and then another 2% back from costco. and they automatically give you a check from each every year. no fuss

The American Express Credit Card Company

American Express began in 1850 as an express delivery service based in NYC, but about 100 years later it launched its first credit card. Within the first five years the card gained more than a million cardholders. By the 1960s American Express had millions of customers and had introduced the prestigious and popular Amex Gold Card. Today American Express credit cards are carried by approximately 25 percent of all cardholders in the United States.
The American Express brand now encompasses a wide number of financial services under its global corporate umbrella and is traded on the New York Stock Exchange. The American Express credit card division is one of the top three credit card processing companies in the world and it has a full range of credit cards for individuals, small businesses, and larger corporations.

American Express credit card products include the Preferred Rewards Gold Card that lets you earn travel on nearly a dozen different airlines; the Starwood Preferred Card affiliated with 5-star luxury resort hotels; and the Amex Costco card for those budget-minded shoppers who want to earn great rewards while shopping at Costco stores. Other cards include the Plum, Zinc, and Amex Blue – as well as the legendary American Express Centurion card. It is known to most people as the American Express Black Card and is the world’s rarest American Express Card. Those who carry the jet black card enjoy an extreme level of personal service that can be extended only to selected individuals worldwide, and this is the card that sparks legends and rumors but is rarely seen – because there are only a small number of them in circulation.

The way the American Express Prepaid card works is that you add cash to your American Express account, then make purchases up to the limit of your available cash. When you need to add more money just reload the card. Best of all, the card does not include fees normally charged by prepaid card companies. The only real charge is a $2 ATM fee. But you automatically get one ATM withdrawal per month for free. Anyone age 18 and older can purchase one, and these cards are accepted wherever merchants honor American Express.

Whatever kind of credit card you need, American Express has it – but generally speaking you need to have excellent credit to qualify.
