American Express is a CardRatings.com advertiser.

Q: Does this website give me a list of the cards that best fit my credit?

A: The short answer is yes. The CardRatings.com database lets you search for credit card offers in five broad consumer categories based on a credit score.

Since the passage of the Credit CARD Act, the Federal Reserve has required banks to lock in aspects of their credit card offers that can only change if a cardholder misses a payment or otherwise breaches their contract. As a result, American lenders now issue hundreds of distinct credit card offers every year, designed to entice new customers while luring borrowers from their competitors. The CardRatings.com research team reviews the vast majority of these offers, sorting into rankings based on four broad credit categories:

Credit card deals change weekly, so our researchers and editors work hard to keep the CardRatings.com database updated with the very latest information on finance charges, annual fees and card perks. Likewise, your credit score can fluctuate from month to month based on your relationship with current lenders and on the number of credit card applications you make in a short period of time. Researching offers using CardRatings.com can help prevent the "hard pulls" of your credit report that can reduce your credit score.

About Our Ratings ×

Our editors rate credit cards objectively based on the features the credit card offers consumers, the fees and interest rates, and how a credit card compares with other cards in its category. Ratings vary by category, and the same card may receive a certain number of stars in one category and a higher or lower number in another.

The ratings are the expert opinion of our editors, and not influenced by any remuneration this site may receive from card issuers.
