    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.

    A few months ago, I noticed fraudulent activity on my Capital One Mastercard. There was over $1,000 in charges that were not mine were made to the account. I immediately contacted Capital One customer service and spoke to a very helpful and friendly representative who told me that the matter would be handled quickly and efficiently. I was contacted by their fraud detection department shortly there after, and within 4 days, I noticed the charges were removed from my account. They also helped me update my security information so that my accounts could be better protected.

    I use my BankAmericard Visa card mainly to build up my credit since I'm looking to move to another state in a few years. When it comes to making purchases I mainly use it for stuff that I purchase every month around the same time. I use it at the grocery store about 4 times a month, I also use it to pay for my transit fees to work. If i'm going to make a purchase for my home or maybe a gift for someone one in my family then i'll use it as well. I try to not get carried away and use it on everything so limited the usage to my must-haves for the month is a good way to keep it under control and build up my credit line.

    I have the Citi Double Cash Card and had to call them when my card was stolen. They had an EXCELLENT credit card theft system that calmed me way down about my concerns. I seriously went from super worried to a brand new card in about 5-10 minutes. They walked me through the system step by step, were very nice and spoke to me with complete respect. I didn't receive any consequences for the theft except a slight inconvenience, which Citi made sure was kept to a minimum. A week later I had my new card and everything was good to go.

    I prefer a credit card with a low APR. This is because the rewards don't really entice me because I don't like to make bug purchases with a credit card and if I want to make a large purchase I just save and wait until I have enough money to purchase it.

    A secured card is going to be your best bet. The fact that you have to place a refundable security deposit that also represents your credit line means issuers don't have to charge the same high fees as with unsecured cards for bad credit. It also makes approval essentially guaranteed.

    I have been very happy with the customer service on my Capital One Platinum Prestige credit card. A few months ago, I noticed fraudulent activity on this card. There was around $500 in charges that were not mine on the card. I contacted Capital One and spoke to a very helpful customer service representative who told me that the matter would be taken care of speedily and efficiently. Within just a few days, the charge was resolved and removed.

    I think everyone should be using a credit card, even if you're one of those rare unicorns who has enough money to pay cash or debit everywhere you go! I'm not one of those special people (though I'm trying to get there!) so I use my credit card to cover certain necessities like food and utilities until I get the money to pay for them. I have a card with a relatively low interest rate (the Chase Freedom), so it's possible for me to avoid getting consumed in the giant snowball of credit card debt.

    I also use my credit card for pretty much all of my purchases in order to maximize my cash back. Chase has some really good cash back categories for everyday life. In January I'm earning 5% back at grocery stores (!!), movie theaters, and Starbucks (which is a contributor to my crippling debt - just kidding). I love to cook and eat so I make sure to swipe my Chase Freedom every time I go grocery shopping. If you use one card primarily, like I do, it's also easy to check one website for all your expenses. This can help you get your budget under control, like I'm trying to.

    Without a doubt, apply for a secured credit card. Secured cards are the closest thing you can get to guaranteed approval and they’re fairly cheap, as issuers are protected by the security deposit you have to place, which doubles as your credit line. The best part about the deposit (aside from the fact that it’s refundable) is that you can increase your available credit and thereby expedite credit building just by adding to your deposit over time.

    A FICO score below 620 corresponds to a bad score. In this case, you can try to apply for a secured card. Just to have an idea you can take a look here: http://www.cardhub.com/best-credit-cards-for-bad-credit/.

    Nevertheless, when applying for a card, there are others factors (besides credit score) that play a role like income, outstanding debts and job status, so all of these will need to be considered when applying.

    The best business credit cards for bad credit are the secured ones. The security deposit that you'll place when applying for a card acts as a credit limit and in time you will be able to extend it so that it matches your business spending needs.

    When it comes to credit cards, I would prefer less risk and more reward. I've received several offers for a credit card that provides airline miles, but has a $100 annual fee. I will think about applying for a high-interest credit card that offers some kind of reward (no-interest financing for several months, or points of some kind), but an annual fee means that I'm spending money even when I don't use the card. In my current financial situation, I'm trying to save wherever I can, and that means earning points might make sense, but annual fees don't.

    I'm pretty fond of my Chase Slate card, which doesn't offer rewards of any kind. The card has a low interest rate, which makes it appealing for larger purchases even if it has no other benefits. For smaller purchases, I'm pretty happy with my Banana Republic Visa, which earns me points toward purchases at the Gap brands. The interest rate is high, but I'm still not spending the amount I would spend on an annual fee for another card.

    If you’re looking to save money, then by all means focus on cards that do not charge an annual fee. Just understand that an annual fee is often the price you have to pay for the best rewards, which can end up easily paying for the fee if you use your card a lot. And while the Banana Republic Credit Card is a decent option for Gap-brand purchases, it might be a good idea to get an all-purpose cash back card (e.g. the Citi Double Cash) for non-Gap everyday purchases.

    You should also transfer any debt you have on your Banana Republic Card to the Slate Card, assuming you’re still in the 15-month 0% intro period. Then, make sure never to carry a balance on an everyday credit card again. Their interest rates aren’t designed for it and it’s an obvious sign of overspending.

    We definitely hear where you’re coming from, but you also have to consider what you might be giving up by swearing off annual fees entirely. Most of the best rewards cards charge annual fees, so by insisting on a card that does not charge one, you’re effectively paying a price via lost value. Just something to think about!
