While getting approved for a credit card is harder than it used to be, there is still a wide variety of offers out there. If you want 0% balance transfers and no annual fees, you can find that. If you want cash (or airline miles or points) back on each purchase, you can find that too.

Here are some of our favorite resources to help you compare rates, rewards and other features that credit cards offer:
  • They've compiled a list of 450+ cards that you can easily filter by card type and more. 
  • Fatwallet: In particular, this Fatwallet message board has a user-compiled, up-to-date list of cards and their selections for the best ones of each type. We love this list because it's driven by consumers, not by a company that's likely to get a kick-back for promoting a certain card.
  • On this site, you can also filter by your credit rating to see cards that you can qualify for. 
Make sure you review the card terms on the bank's site to ensure they match up.  Credit card comparison sites often get paid a bounty if you apply for a card through them so while they are not trying to mislead you, they may not necessarily have your best interest in mind either.

Also, check the card issuer sites directly (Citibank, Bank of America, Capital One, American Express, Chase, Discover, etc.) to see their latest offerings and make sure you are avoiding any misleading offers from non-affiliated websites.

Charles Schwab Visa
I looked around very thoroughly when I was in the market for a new card and found that the Charles Schwab Visa was by far the best. No annual fee, 2% cash back on all purchases. You need a Schwab account or you can set up a new one for free. They deposit the money directly into the Schwab account for you but you can withdraw it to your bank account if you don't want to keep it there for investing. _x000D_ _x000D_ I used to use the American Express Costco Platinum card which gave 1.5% cash back after the first $5,000 in purchases during the year.
