REWARD CARDS

The Reward credit card is one of the most popular types of card available, especially for frequent spenders who settle their balances in full each month. Reward cards are designed to encourage spending with certain lenders endorsing a higher reward rate. This type of card usually warrants a higher annual fee.

Some reward credit cards can work out to be quite expensive if they are not managed well. It's important to make sure the balance is settled in full each month, as interest rates and fees tend to be on the high side with this type of card. If you are a full payer, then the rewards redeemed can soon outweigh the annual cost of the card. If you fail to settle your balance most months, then it may be worth looking to apply for a Low Rate credit card instead.

If you know your credit rating, select it by hovering your mouse over the panel to the right and clicking on the appropriate rating. If you don’t know your credit rating, click the button to calculate it for free. This will match up your rating with lender appetite to give you the best chance of success with your application.
