Credit Cards are really nice to have, but you don't realize how fast you can get into trouble. I did this quite by accident and I am still trying to pay them off. I sure will be glad to be done with them.

The only people who get into trouble are those that are not financially responsible. What people need to do in order to prevent going into debt they can't pay off is to spend less money than what they have sitting in a bank account as petty cash. I have never spent money I don't have sitting in a bank account, and after five years in the credit industry, I am in no debt whatsoever.

By: Tom Jensen | Oct 27, 2015

A lot of people are in the same situation as you. I used to have a Friend that would say "I am Credit Poor but Cash Rich" He would charge everything, pay the min each month and then he got into trouble. Credit cards should be treated and used in lieu of cash each month and then paid off each month or throughout the month. Use them to reap the rewards and help build up your credit.

Most experts consider the Chase Slate the best balance transfer credit card on the market at the moment. Check out this article we wrote about why it is so great for balance transfers!

If one already has a card with one of these providers, can they open another account?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Sep 23, 2015

Hi Edward,

Yes, consumers can have multiple credit cards from the same issuer. The different banks have different rules regarding multiple accounts, but as long as you have a good credit score, it is generally not a problem. One thing to note, however, is that you cannot transfer a credit card balance between cards from the same issuer.

Are there any reputable credit cards for someone with bad/poor credit

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Sep 23, 2015

Hi Sean,

If you have poor credit, you'll probably need to start with a secured credit card. A secured card works just like a normal credit card, but you have to put down a refundable security deposit to get approved. After about a year of responsible use, you should have a good enough credit score to get approved for a standard, unsecured card to continue building credit.

The secured card I always recommend is the Capital One Secured MasterCard. This card has no annual fee, and you'll get access to their free Credit Tracker service so you can make sure your credit score is going up.

A good credit score is generally considered to be over 700 and an excellent credit score is generally 740.

WE HAVE GREAT CREDIT SCORE, BUT SAD TO SAY WE OWE AOUT 14,000. IF I WAS TO GET ONE OF THESE CARDS AND YOUR TIME IS UP WITH THE FREE INTEREST ,HOW MUCH WILL YOUR INTEREST GO UP.

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Sep 22, 2015

Hi Robbie

The interest rate you get approved for after the intro period is up will depend on your credit worthiness. Since you have a great credit score, you should be able to get approved for a realtively low interest rate. For example, the Citi Simplicity offers 0% APR for 21 months, and after the intro period is up, your interest rate will be between 12.99%-22.99%. If you've got a really great credit score, you're ongoing rate will probably be closer to 12.99%.

I currently use my American Express (through Costco) for most payments where AMex is accepted. Costco is no longer going to be involved with Costco as of next year. I am looking for another American Express card that has a 'cash back' feature. Would you recommend the Every Day card?

Hi Mary Ellen,

The American Express Everyday Card is certainly a good rewards card, but if you're looking for cash back, I would recommend the Blue Cash EveryDay Card from American Express instead. This card offers 3% cash back on groceries, 2% on gas, and 1% on all other purchases.
