    Expert’s Answers

    Do I need a credit card and if yes what type?

    By: Odysseas Papadimitriou, CardHub CEOWe believe that most people should have a credit card as it is the easiest way to add positive information to your major credit reports on an ongoing basis and thereby build and maintain your credit history. Whether or not you use it depends on whether it will cause you to spend more than you would otherwise. If it does not, credit cards offer a number of advantages in that they allow you to earn rewards, pay for big-ticket purchases over time, lower the cost of existing debt through balance transfers, save on foreign currency conversion, shop online, rent cars, and easily track and manage small business spending, among many other things. Credit cards are not one size fits all. Not only does your credit standing dictate what offers you’ll be able to get approved for, but different people require different terms and features from their credit cards, depending on income as well as spending and payment habits. Below you will find some general guidelines that will help steer you toward the best credit card for your particular needs.
    1. If you have trouble garnering credit card approval or have bad credit history, your best bet is a secured credit card.
    2. If you are a student, you should obviously get a student credit card.
    3. If you anticipate needing some extra time to pay off an upcoming big-ticket purchase, focus only on finding the best possible 0% APR credit card and ignore rewards.
    4. If you are currently indebted, a balance transfer credit card will enable you to pay down your balance faster
    5. If you pay your bill in full every month, focus your credit card comparison on maximizing the free money you bring in by identifying the best rewards credit card and ignore APRs
    6. If you're a small business owner, use a personal credit card for company purchases that you will not be able to pay for in full so that you can benefit from CARD Act protections. Use a business rewards credit card for everyday company expenses in order to get the enhanced expense tracking and centralized rewards earning features unique to business-branded cards. After all, small business owners are held equally liable no matter what type of card they use, according to a Card Hub study.
    With all of that being said, if you're already in financial trouble (e.g. late on payments, in collections, etc.), getting access to credit – while one of the easiest ways to overcome financial difficulties in the short term – will be almost impossible. No one will be able to extend you a line of credit other than friends and family because of concerns that doing so now will only get you into deeper trouble in the long term, which will make it harder for them to get their money back. Depending on the exact nature of your situation, you might need to explore debt solutions options in order to figure out what your next step should be.

    Why is my credit standing important to my credit card search?

    By: John Kiernan, Personal Finance EditorYour credit standing indicates your fiscal responsibility and trustworthiness to credit card companies and underwriters. It thereby dictates which loan and credit card offers you can qualify for as well as the interest rates you’ll have to pay. Not only is it a waste of time to apply for a credit card that requires better credit standing than what you currently have, but racking up denials on your credit card applications can lead to credit score damage. Keep in mind that the importance of your credit score extends beyond interest rates and card eligibility to things like car insurance premiums, the security deposit you’ll have to place in renting an apartment, and even your ability to get certain types of jobs.

    Quick Tips

    By: John Kiernan, Personal Finance Editor
    1. Always compare credit cards before applying; there’s no way of telling whether you’re getting the best deal otherwise, and marketing can be deceiving
    2. You should only consider applying for a credit card if it matches your credit standing.
    3. You should not submit more than a couple credit card applications within a short period of time, as this can lead to a roughly six-month dip in your credit score.

    What’s the best way to apply for a credit card?

    By: Odysseas Papadimitriou, CardHub CEOWhile we’re all used to being able to apply for major credit cards through the mail, the fact that online credit card applications are becoming more and more common might lead you to wonder about the best application method. The truth is that the way in which you apply is merely a matter of personal preference, but making an educated decision about the card you wish to get should not be.

    You can’t evaluate credit card offers in a vacuum; you need to view each in light of what the rest of the market has to offer. Sure, you can lay a bunch of credit card applications side by side on your kitchen table and do your due diligence that way, but at Card Hub, comparing hundreds of credit cards is as simple as a few clicks of your mouse.

    Once you identify the card for which you’d like to apply, you may have up to four choices for how you’d like to submit your application, depending on the bank: 1) via mail; 2) over the phone; 3) online; or 4) at an actual bank branch. For those of you concerned about sharing personal financial information over the Internet, every online credit card application is encrypted using SSL technology, and you can read more about our data protection practices here.

    What’s the best credit card company, and what's the best card network?

    By: Odysseas Papadimitriou, CardHub CEOIn practical terms, your card's network really only matters if you plan on traveling overseas given that Visa and MasterCard are much more widely accepted abroad than Discover and American Express. Just make sure to get a no foreign transaction fee credit card on one of these networks, and you will be all set for your international travels.

    When it comes to deciding on credit card offers from different companies (e.g. a Capital One credit card vs. a Citibank credit card), we recommend that you focus on getting the best interest rates and rewards possible since the money you save by doing so will benefit you more in the long term than things like better customer service.

    I had a bad experience with my credit card a few years ago, what's different now?

    By: John Kiernan, Personal Finance EditorThe CARD Act is what's different now. The new credit card law, which went into effect in February 2010, increased transparency in the credit card industry and dramatically strengthened consumer rights. Among the highlights of the law are provisions that lower penalty fees, eliminate arbitrary interest rate increases on existing balances, require better communication between issuers and consumers, and provide for favorable allocation of payments. Whereas many credit card offers used to be characterized by bait-and-switch tactics, you can now trust that what you see during the course of your credit card comparisons is what you get and that the benefits of using a credit card will not be marred by shady practices. While the CARD Act unfortunately does not apply to business credit cards, any company that offers credit cards is not held to a higher standard.

    What if I have questions about my existing credit card account?

    By: John Kiernan, Personal Finance EditorIf you have specific questions regarding an existing credit card account (e.g. problems with your monthly statement or logistical issues), contact its respective issuer directly by calling the number on the back of your card. Credit card companies do not share any information with Card Hub that will allow us to help you with any account-specific issues.

    Nevertheless, we hope that you ask general credit card questions (e.g. questions about types of cards, strategies, terminology, etc.) and share your experiences on Card Hub. You see, our credit card finder tools help you identify the right credit card offer for your needs, but those tools become better the more consumers rate and write reviews for cards that they have used.

    When selecting a credit card, I strongly recommend choosing a card with no annual fee and with the lowest interest rate possible for your credit level. Although benefits, such as cash back, can draw you in, an annual fee quickly offsets any initial advantage. Likewise, interest-free periods are attractive, but if the rate is high at the end of that period, you are likely to still have a balance and lose money in the long term.

    It would be nice to have a credit card that did not have such high rates. It would be a great thing if I could use a credit card that would not charge such high fees as well. The credit card that I am currently using is pretty good except for what I mentioned earlier about the low fees.

    Man I could go on and on about different things a credit card should and shouldn't do. My biggest interest in more innovative credit cards would be to add measures of security. One measure that could be facilitated is a finger print recognition software that will only unlock your credit card (for a certain amount of time), only if you provide it the proper finger print. You could activate the card to bee unlocked for small moments of time in order to increase security both in person and on-line transactions.

    Why it's so hard for me to get the best credit card that fits my needs. I have good credit but no credit. I never had a credit card before. So how's my credit bad,if I never had the chance to get one. The best part about it is that I'm not in debt.

    I prefer to use a credit card instead of a debit card when making online purchases. Even though your bank will refund any money that is taken fraudulently through your debit card, this can take several weeks sometimes. If you need that money in the meantime (like for the rent, mortgage, or food), this can really make life difficult. By using a credit card for online purchases, you don't lose real money if you are the victim of fraud. Plus, credit card companies are quicker to return funds to your account than banks are.

    I use a Capital One credit card to help manage both daily expenses, (groceries, gas, utilities) as well as trip expenses on our yearly vacationing. I find that the breakdown of expenses, as well as the rewards I'm able to get, (points, cash back, low, variable rate with introductory 0%), make this very convenient and worthwhile having. I would definitely recommend them if you are in the market for a good credit card with excellent, proven customer service.

    I first used a credit card in 1978. It was a Texaco card. It helped me with an emergency when I was in college. I was able to get new tires for my car after one blew out because they were all worn out. But be careful though. Many years later, I was laid off suddenly. I had trouble in my job search and it took me 8 months to find one. I had to keep paying on my cards off with savings which almost disappeared. So plan for the unexpected and don't carry large balances.

    Yes, but they tend to be expensive and don’t provide substantial credit lines (http://www.cardhub.com/credit-cards/bad-credit-unsecured/) . We recommend secured cards unless you need an emergency loan: http://www.cardhub.com/credit-cards/secured/

    I have used a card that had both no fees and did have rewards before in the form of my Suncoast Credit Union, Reward Classic Starter card. If I was in the situation that I had to choose between one with no annual fee or no rewards I would go with the no annual fees because I find it ridiculous that any company should get money to do something that another company will do for free.

    The most important feature I’d want in a credit card is a grace period for late fees. If my account is in good standing I think it is crummy if I am late for a payment by literally a few hours to get charged a fee. I have had situations with cards before where I paid on the due date but after the cut-off times and got hit for a late charge. I think common sense policies for late fees is a significant feature I’d like to see.

    How is it possible to get a credit card with bad news credit?
    Jun 26, 2015
    Photo of Card H.
    You’re basically asking how credit card companies afford to extend credit to people with bad credit. There are a couple of ways. For starters, some require that cardholders place a refundable security deposit, the amount of which doubles as your spending limit. Those are secured credit cards, and they enable people with limited or bad credit to improve their standing without there being any risk for the issuer.

    The other way they can afford to offer credit cards to people with bad credit is by charging high fees and interest, while extending a relatively small credit line. That’s why we recommend secured cards to people with a history of financial mistakes. You can compare available secured cards here (http://www.cardhub.com/edu/secured-cards/) and credit cards for people with bad credit here (http://www.cardhub.com/credit-cards/bad-credit/).

    For me, the most important perk that I look for when I select a new credit card is the amount of cashback I can earn on my purchases. I love being able to utilize my credit card by using a 5% CB or something similar with conjunction of another rebate site in addition to a coupon or something. It really allows you to save some major cash, especially during the holidays!
