The promotional rates on credit cards could be very low with as there are many credit cards companies offering 0% balance transfers at this very moment. However, card holders might find their applications rejected or worse, find themselves being charged by hidden fees in the scenario where their cards are not used as expected. There are some tips though which credit card customers need to follow to ensure that they don’t receive these charges.


If customers have a bad credit history they need to be realistic in not applying to many different credit cards. Customers who have a large outstanding debt or who have missed several monthly payments should be applying for the best interest free cards. This is because such cards aren’t approved for those with a bad credit rating and this rejection will only add up on the credit file further reducing the credit score of the individual. This could also restrict future attempts at getting credit.


However, this is not to discourage bad credit customers because there are online smart search tools that can help them find the best rates available for various credit cards without even having to provide personal details. This allows customers to find out the best terms on credit cards on offer for their credit history and then apply allowing them to narrow down their search and applying only for those credit cards where they have a good chance of being approved. Basically, this tool helps to tailor the search for the best credit cards applicable for every customer, more so for those with a bad credit history.


Another important thing for customers to remember is to make monthly payments on time. Missing the monthly payments would lead to high penalties which add up on the overall credit card debt of the customer. A sensible thing to do would be to set up an automatic debit, so that a minimum monthly payment is always made. This way even if you forget making the monthly payments you wouldn’t be slapped with heavy fines. Another good idea is to work out a plan with the credit card issuer to come to a minimum payment every month to get rid of the card debt. Utilizing this method you wouldn’t have to worry about huge interests accumulating on the credit card debt. Making the monthly payments on time and a bit extra will help to improve credit score.
