Why should I use a credit card comparison website?
Utilizing a 3rd party credit card comparison website allows you to compare offers from many different credit card issuers all in one place, comparing things like fees, rewards, benefits, and terms.

How important is it for me to find the right credit card for me?
We believe it is critical! Not only do you need to find the right type of card for your needs, but most importantly, you need to find a card that fits your credit profile to maximize your chances of approval. LowCards breaks down all our cards into two types of categories -- card type and credit profile. Card types include cards designed for a specific purpose, such as low interest cards, no annual fee cards, balance transfer cards, travel cards, and more. These cards fulfill a specific need, and are always sorted by our editor's opinion with the most attractive offers on top. Cards by credit profile are designed to help you find the best card based on your credit profile, whether that be excellent, good, fair, poor, or limited. All cards on LowCards feature a suggested credit profile rating, which helps you find not only the right type of card for you but also the right card for your specific credit profile.
What’s the best way to save money with a credit card?
We highly recommend avoiding high fees to save money with your credit card. While rewards, points, and cash back can be attractive, the reality is many credit card users spend far more in annual fees, interest, and other fees than they ever earn in rewards, points, or cash back. Make sure you pick a credit card designed for how you intend to use it. For example, if you plan on carrying a balance long term, make sure you choose a low interest credit card to save on interest fees. If you plan on carrying a balance for a short time, look for a card with a low or 0% interest introductory offer. The other large fee to be mindful of is the annual fee. Most consumers may want to look for a credit card that has no annual fee to make sure you save on fees year after year with your new credit card!
Can I have more than one credit card?
Absolutely, in fact, we recommend it. While having too many cards is a bad thing, most consumers have 3-5 credit cards which is perfectly fine. Many times, consumers will select cards with different types of rewards, fees, and features, and use those cards accordingly. For example, you may want to have one card to carry a balance with low interest, another card with bonus dining rewards for eating out, another card for airline travel or hotels, and a last card for general expenses and use. Each credit card has a specific focus and purpose, and it is often difficult to find one card to maximize your benefits and lower your fees, so having multiple cards may help you save money and maximize your benefits!
