How do we evaluate credit cards?

All of the credit cards featured on CardCritics are assessed using the same criteria. Our critics evaluate fees, interest rates, balance transfer options, introductory bonuses, rewards, additional benefits and the average credit score required for approval.

CardCritics is an ad supported site. We are paid a fee by credit card issuers when our site visitors are approved for a card. This compensation may influence which cards will be featured and/or where cards will appear on the CardCritics website, but any financial compensation we receive does not impact how a card is evaluated. All opinions expressed on this site are our own and have not been provided or commissioned by any of our advertising partners. We are committed to providing unbiased reviews to help you find the credit card that best suits your needs.
