    How to use this credit card comparison tool

    Whether you’ve already narrowed down your credit card options to a few choices or you’re just starting your research, our credit card comparison tool can help you determine the best credit card for your needs. With it, you can compare multiple cards from the same issuer, from the same category such as business cards, or you can see side-by-side details from polar opposites – perhaps a travel card that earns miles or points and an everyday-spending card that offers cash back.

    Our credit card comparison tool allows you to compare up to three cards at a time. Simply search for the cards you’d like to compare by typing in either the card name or the name of the credit card issuer in the search bar. Once you’ve selected the cards you’d like to compare, all you need to do is click the “compare” button to see your results. From there you’ll see the cards’ most pertinent details, conveniently presented side-by-side for easy comparison. If you’d like to apply for one of these cards, you can click the “apply now” button to submit your application, or you can choose “learn more” to read the card’s full review.

    What to consider when comparing credit cards

    There is no one-size-fits-all credit card. The right credit card for you likely won’t be right for the next person. That said, when comparing credit cards, it’s important to keep your lifestyle and individual spending habits in mind. If you rarely travel, a card that earns travel points or miles might not benefit you much. You might want to stick with comparing cash-back credit cards. Or maybe you’re not seeking a rewards card, and instead, you need some extra time to pay off a balance you’re carrying on a high-APR credit card. If that’s the case, comparing a few intro 0% APR balance transfer cards might be smart.

    Besides for rewards, a couple of other major factors you’ll want to consider when comparing credit cards are the cards’ annual fees (or lack of) and APRs. If you’re applying for a rewards credit card where the benefits could easily offset the annual fee, this might not matter to you so much. But if you’re trying to keep your costs as low as possible, this fee might be a bigger factor in your decision process. Same can be said with APRs. If you plan to pay your balance in full each month, the card’s ongoing APR might not be a big deal to you. However, if you need to carry a balance, the APR cost will be something very important to consider.

    Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you’ll want to keep your credit score in mind. If you have fair credit, you’ll want to avoid applying for credit cards designed for people with excellent credit. And if you have excellent credit, you could be missing out on value rewards and opportunities with a card meant for people who are new to credit.
