I'm looking for credit card, what the best card I can have and my score credit 517? which one I can get it?

By: CompareCards | Nov 28, 2016

With a credit score in the 500s, your credit is considered poor and you will need to start with a secured credit card. Secured cards work just like normal credit cards, but you have to put down a refundable security deposit to get approved. The Capital One Secured MasterCard and the Discover it® Secured are both great options.

what would be the best card my score is 828?

By: CompareCards | Nov 22, 2016

With a credit score over 800, your credit is considered excellent and you will likely be approved for any credit card you apply for. If you're looking for a low interest credit card, the Citi Diamond Preferred or Barclaycard Ring MasterCard would both be great options. If you'd like cash back, check out the Citi Double Cash or theDiscover it® Cash Back cashback. For travel rewards, the Chase Sapphire Preferred or the Capital One Venture would each be a great choice. With your high credit score you can take your pick from whichever credit card you like!

With a score in the mid 600s, your credit is considered fair/average and there are a few solid credit card offers you may be able to get approved for. The Capital One QuicksilverOne and the Barclaycard Rewards MasterCard would both be great options to start with!

I am new to credit and have been building credit pretty steadily. I have a 659 transunion score, and am looking for a card that i can be approved for. The only thing is i applied for my banks (Sdccu) visa, and was denied. I am in need of a card for emergencies and have never missed a payment. What would be the best card for me?

I would suggest Cap One. They are very good when you are trying to get started and a very good company. They started me out years ago and even though they are a little higher (because they take the risk) I still keep one of their cards because I like the company. Make sure you pay all your bills on time....if not, you are fighting for nothing!

By: Rob Smith | Nov 24, 2016

Up at the top of the page is a dropdown labeled "Credit Quality". It gives choices for different credit score levels. I saw some that said they would pre-approve - that is tell you if you would get it without it impacting your credit score. Your credit score can drop from a new credit application.

By: Rosa Valdez | Nov 25, 2016

Lizzie, to gain a credit history, it takes time. Start with small store and gas station credit cards. When you establish a history with them, go for the higher cards. Never pay the minimum, always pay off the maximum or at least 3/4 of what the charge was worth or as close to it as possible.

I have a 720+ Credit score. If I open another credit card for balance transfer will my score drop?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Nov 28, 2016

Anytime you apply for a new credit card, a hard inquiry will be reported to the credit bureaus which may have a slight negative impact on your credit score. However, this effect will be small and temporary for an isolated application. And if you are applying for a credit card to pay off the balance on another card this may actually have a positive impact on your credit in the long run. This is because by opening a new account to pay off your debt you will be decreasing your credit utilization rate significantly.

I pay off my credit cards each month. I treat them just like cash. I deduct my purchases on the CC from my check book each day. I have a credit score of 830. I am looking for a Cash Back credit card with no foreign transaction fees, that I can use for all purposes (fuel, groceries, gifts, etc) and receive cash back even when I am traveling in my RV across Canada What card do you suggest?

It sounds like the Capital One Quicksilver would be the perfect card for you! It is a great cash back rewards card that meets all the requirements you laid out.

Are any of these for poor credit?

Generally speaking, you need good credit to get approved for the best credit card offer. However, there are still a number of decent credit cards available for people with poor credit. Check them out on our page for credit cards for poor credit!

If you son is just starting to build credit, he may need to start with a secured credit card. Secured Cards work just like normal credit cards, but you have to put down a refundable security deposit to get approved. The Capital One Secured MasterCard and the Discover it® Secured are both great options.

Get an Amex card. Usually if you're able to pay off your balance each month, when you've finally established a good payment, then apply for a Citibank, Chase, etc. Then, never a problem in securing another card.

By: Renee I. Guerrero-Adams | Nov 29, 2016

You can add your son to an existing card you have as a additional user, if you pay your cards and have good credit that will help improve your son credit too!

0% Credit Cards & Interest Free Credit Cards

Low interest rate (or 0%) credit cards can save you hundreds of dollars on balance transfers and on routine purchases carried over as credit card balances. Or you may simply want to be rewarded with a preferential interest rate as acknowledgement for good credit history and responsible debt management. Whatever your goals or motivation, zero percent or low interest credit cards can help you maintain the lowest rates available to individuals with excellent to good credit. You can find out more about credit score here.

Keep in mind that there are two main categories of low rate credit cards, namely those that offer a Variable APR and those that give you a Fixed APR.  Just like with variable versus fixed rate mortgages, a fixed rate APR will remain relatively stable through the course of the loan. If your card company decides to raise it – which is somewhat rare – they will first notify you of that change according to Federal law requirements. With a variable rate, your APR is tied to a prevailing rate such as the Prime Interest Rate. If the prime rate increases then your APR will most likely follow in a similar fashion.

Generally speaking, credit card companies and banks will extend either 6 or 21 month offers – within the 0% to 3.99% annual interest rate range. That can generate a considerable discount when normal APRs are averaging around 15% or higher. Once the introductory promotional period expires, the APR on a low interest credit card or interest free credit card may revert to the regular interest rate. Of course the ideal balance is a credit card that offers a great near term rate followed by an attractive, competitively priced low interest rate for the long term.

The interest rate charged on your credit card is widely regarded as the single most important component of your card. That’s because it determines the major cost for you to borrow or roll over balances and pay them off over time instead of all at once or within the same month that you make purchases. That’s why getting a zero percent or low interest credit card can be huge financial boon, no matter what your credit card usage patterns or money management strategies may be.
