Can certain things in your credit record cancel-out a high credit score? I have a score of 760 to 770. But it appears I've been labeled as someone who frequently applies for credit cards. During the past year I've returned (for account closure) two credit cards, with "zero" balances, that turned-out to have an APR, for purchases, of around 23%.

Closing credit card accounts can adversely effect your credit by lessening your available credit...the more credit you have available the better you look to creditors. The only reason I would ever close a credit card account is if it had an annual fee and I never planed on using. it. Also closing an account can hurt you even more if you have had the card a long time because creditors look at the average length of time that you have had all your accounts open.

Also what about the Discover IT cards vs. Amex Preferred blue cash?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Dec 7, 2015

Hi Daryle,

The Discover it® Cash Back is a very different card from the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express. The Discover it® Cash Back offers 5% cash back in different rotating categories each quarter, and the categories usually include things like gas, dining, and Amazon.com. If you're looking for a cash back card that will consistently get you great rewards on your groceries and gas purchases, the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express is the way to go. But if you're spending aligns with the bonus categories on the Discover it® Cash Back , it can be a very rewarding card as well.

Here is a link that will compare the Blue Cash Preferred, Discover it® Cash Back, and the Chase Sapphire Preferred side by side!

Blue Cash preferred from Amex looks like a great card & I've read lots of reviews & comparisons. I have excellent credit & not worried about the fee. 6% cash back at supermarkets?! Wow, I've been thinking about this for a while! It looks like it has a slight edge on Chase Sapphire Preferred also. Any concerns or things I should know about?

By: CompareCards | Dec 7, 2015

Hi Daryle,

You're correct! If you spend a lot of money on groceries and gas, the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express can't be beat. If you're looking to earn extra cash back on gas and groceries, it's definitely a better option than the Chase Sapphire Preferred, which offers 2x points on travel and dining.

The 6% cash back on supermarkets is limited to the first $6,000 in purchases each year, but that's really the only "catch" to the card. If you spend the full $6,000 with a year, you'll earn $360 in cash back!

I am looking a card that I can transfer balance. with no interest for a year or so...

By: CompareCards | Dec 3, 2015

Hi Brenda,

There are numerous credit cards that have 0% APR on balance transfers for a year or more. You're best option will probably be the Chase Slate card, which has 15 months with 0% APR and no balance transfer fee.

I'm wanting to find the best credit card for air miles but I also don't see anywhere how many points are needed to get a ticket? Where do I find this ? How do you calculate air miles to points? I see some air miles cards offer a 50,000 bonus miles after a few months if you spend so much but what will those points equal to as far as a ticket.Im looking for a card because I'm going to need 4 round trip tickets next summer. (traveling 4,000 driving miles total for each ticket Round trip. (X4) ...so like 16,000 driving miles all together for all 4 tickets. So how many miles do I need to earn on a miles reward credit card to get those paid go?? And which card is the best for this? I only care about the maximum miles I can earn fast and be able to use the miles easily, anywhere, anytime no hassle. I don't care of higher interest, annual fee. My credit is good.

I already have several of these cards. Most are inactive. The card I use most frequently is not listed. Should I cancel most of these inactive cards and apply for the best offer that fits my situation? If one of my inactive cards is one that is being offered would I get the same benefits as those being offered in this ad?

By: CompareCards | Dec 1, 2015

Hi Lee,

If you have credit card accounts that are open, but you no longer use them. There is no harm in leaving them open as long as they don't have an annual fee. In fact, closing these accounts may have a negative impact on your credit, especially if you've had them open for many years.

If you apply for a credit card that you already have, you most likely will not be able to receive the promotional offer because those are usually only available to new cardholders.

I got the Chase Sapphire Preferred credit card which right now is giving a bonus of 50k points which is equivalent to around 700$ if you redeem those! its very good to get a round trip flight ticket for free at least once every year.

1 Reply

By: Shona Lindstrom Freskan | Nov 30, 2015

So $50k points = about 1- $700.00 ticket? So if the tickets I need will cost about $2,000 I will need to earn approx. 150,000 reward miles which would be $ 7,500 dollars spent on the card?.... Is that right?

I am looking to transfer a high intrest (19.90) cc so I can lower my payments. If I transfer to another card how would my payments be calculated? The balance I would be transfering would be 6000.00.

2 Replies

By: CompareCards | Nov 24, 2015

Hi Sue,

19.9% interest is a pretty high rate to be paying on a balance of $6,000. Transferring the balance to a low interest credit card could potentially save you a lot of money! To answer your question, different banks have different methods for calculating the minimum payment, but it will usually be between 2%-5% of the balance.

The Chase Slate card and the Citi Simplicity would both be great options to help you save money on the balance transfer. But whichever card you choose, I would recommend that you try to pay more than the minimum payment if you can. Even with the best low interest credit cards, it can take years to get out of credit card debt if you're only making the minimum monthly payment.

By: Jeannine Alveshire Lewis | Dec 5, 2015

I had all the same problem. I handled it Like this: Used One Credit card with longest time to pay off credit card. I took All others from my wallet, except one that if I was in a bind I could use it (but only if it was an emergency like needing brakes or tires, etc.) and if I could pay it off the next month. To pay off the 6K, transfer it to the longest time w/0 interest, then divide the time into the months, then make the same month each month, but on direct bank withdrawal. I did for the 4300 dollars, and next month the amount is pay off without the interest. It took 17 months to pay it off. but, I did it. Also when you purchase, use a different card. But go by the rule ( do I want it or do you need it) you would surprised yourself once you do this on each purchase. I only wish I could that for losing weight. Well, I hope this helps .Also take all credit card out of your wallet, and pick only one with the lowest interest, even if is 19.99%, the interest being that high you should be you reliant to use. I hope this helps and good luck!!!
