It’s not easy choosing a credit card. Typically, we end up taking one from our bank because it just sounds convenient. But that is not always the best card for you. Here are some useful tips that you can consider, to help you choose the best credit card.
Discounts, benefits and rewards
Some cards offer good discounts at restaurants, others reverse fuel surcharges. A few other cards convert reward points to airline miles or simply offer the highest multiple on reward point conversion. Years ago, Citibank issued a credit card that offered its users the ability to convert reward points into hotel room bookings. Such features enhance the user experience and utility of the card.
Go for a card that matches your requirements. If you don’t travel much, then having a card that converts reward points into airline miles is of low benefit. Instead, a card that offers discounts on shopping and additional vouchers may be useful.
