Why is finding the right credit card for you so important? While there are plenty of enticing credit card offers out there, not all of them will be right for you. If you apply for a credit card simply because you like the look of a particular offer, you may not be happy in the long term.

Time to get into it? Before you start your credit card comparison, it’s a good idea to know what to look for. If you don’t have time to read our other handy guides, this two-minute read can provide a good grounding to help you understand what you need and what to look for.
Do you need to transfer a balance from an existing card? A balance transfer offer could help you save on interest over an introductory period, allowing you to pay down more of what you owe. Be aware of how long the intro period lasts and the interest rate any unpaid balance transfers will revert to.
Do you pay off your balance in full each month? Credit cards that offer rewards and features tend to charge higher rates of interest. If you don’t clear your balance by the due date each month, the interest you pay on that balance may negate the value of the rewards and features you receive. A low rate credit card, or clearing your balance each month may be a better option.
How often will you use your credit card? If you plan on using your credit card regularly and making the most of the features on offer, you may find value in feature-packed cards, even if they have a higher annual fee. However, if you only plan on using your card occasionally, a card with a low or no annual fee may offer better value.
How much will you spend on your card month-to-month? The amount you spend on your card can affect the value you receive from it. If you are a big spender – and you clear your balance each month – you may get real value from a rewards card. To work out if a card has value in this case, weigh up how much you are paying in annual fees against the value of rewards you receive.
Will you use your card to buy from merchants overseas? If you travel overseas frequently, or you buy from international retailers on a regular basis, you may want to apply for a credit card with lower fees on international transactions. A range of credit cards don’t charge foreign exchange fees, and some charge no overseas ATM fees.
Are you looking for a short term reward or long term benefit? Some people chop and change credit cards regularly. This allows them to find the best deal, take advantage of it, and then move on to the next deal. If this is the case, a card’s introductory offer would typically be of the highest importance.
However, if you are looking for a credit card that benefits you over the long term, it’s a good idea to look beyond any available offer, to see what else the card provides – and costs. In either case, all potential cardholders should read the small print on the card before applying.
