What to look for in no annual fee credit cards?

Answered on

You must be looking for ways to cut down expenses. One way is of course to spend less but well that is not always something everyone manages to do. The next thing to do is to look for cheaper alternatives of things you tend to indulge in! If you are someone who loves shopping then credit cards are probably your best friends. They may be great fun to spend with but when you have to pay the bills at the end of every month you probably will not have as much fun. When you are looking for a credit card, you will of course take a look at the interest rates on it. Additionally you might also want to see what kind of an annual fee you have to pay. There are of course options in the market for consumers to opt for a card without the annual fee.

When you are on the hunt for no annual fee cards, you have to spend some time researching. Sign up on websites that will send you free newsletter about credit cards. You may have to sort out through all of your previous email to see if you can spot a card that has no annual fee. Most likely it will be emblazoned right at the top and you can selectively sort through those options. Another thing to watch out for is of course the interest rates. If you find that interests are rather on the higher end of the spectrum, try negotiating if you have excellent credit scores.

When you find your no annual fee credit card, you should also check if it is an introductory offer. In which case, you may find that the annual fee on the card would be activated awhile after you begin to use it. Contact your bank directly to see what they can offer you in terms of these cards. If you have been doing business with them since years, they will certainly want to keep you. Offering a good deal on your credit card choices would definitely be on the plate.

When it comes to credit cards, you have to read the whole deal that comes with it. Some cards may come with no annual fee and workable APR`s. But one mistake in payment, one late payment and you may have to end up paying an annual fee on the card. Check the terms and conditions carefully.
