What are credit cards?
Credit cards are a way of borrowing money to pay for bills, goods, or services. Once you've reached a pre-approved credit limit - known as 'maxing out' your credit card - you won't be able to spend any more on the card until you've paid off some of the debt.
At the end of every month you pay off at least the minimum amount of what you owe on the card - if you don't, you'll soon begin to pay interest on what you've borrowed.
Where can I get a credit card?
You normally apply for a credit card online or in-branch at a bank or building society. However, lots of supermarkets, such as Sainsbury's and Tesco, and other specialist providers, like Capital One, also offer cards.
From the traditional high street banks to the major supermarket providers, our credit card comparison tables include all the big names to help you find great credit card deals.
Types of credit card
Credit cards come in a variety of different forms - some cards are better for new purchases or getting cashback on your spending, while others are better for transferring existing debt.
We compare the following types of credit card:

- Credit builder (also known as bad credit credit cards)
