Our tables let you compare across a range of different criteria, but the right card depends on what you want it for. If you have a good credit rating and pay your bills on time, then a cashback or rewards card will give you extras on your spending.
If on the other hand you have a poor credit file, or don’t have a history of borrowing, a credit-builder or bad credit card will be more suitable. Or, if you have an existing credit card debt it’s balance transfer you’re after.
Again, it depends how you’re going to be using it. If you have a large debt already a balance transfer card is your best bet. You can then choose to pay 0% for a longer period of time – the balance transfer period – or for a shorter period, but with no transfer fee.
If on the other hand you’ll be using it for purchases and spending you might want a card offering 0% on new purchases, again, for the longest period. If on the other hand you may have some outstanding balance at the end of the month then a low APR card could be suitable.
APR, or annual percentage rate, is a great basis of comparison. It takes the interest rate, adds in any fees, and averages it out over the year. That means the lower the APR, the lower the overall interest rate and fees will be and the less you’ll pay overall.
Having said that APR can be relatively unimportant. If you’re transferring an existing debt to a balance transfer card then you’ll get a long 0% interest period, so knowing the APR may be less important than knowing how long you’ll pay 0%.
When you hit the apply button we will take you to a page with more details about the card, as well as a summary box, any terms and conditions, and anything else you may need to know before you get the card.
Our ‘Will I get this card’ button is there to help you decide whether the card is suitable for you. Most cards have a few minimum criteria you need to meet before getting the card, but it’s important to realise that even if you meet the criteria you may not get the card.
One of the key factors determining whether you will be accepted for the advertised credit card is your credit history, otherwise known as your credit report or score. This gives the lender an indication of how likely you are to repay the debt on the card.
If they think you’re a bigger risk, you may be asked to pay a higher interest rate. You can read more about credit reports in our guide pages.
Cards on this table are ranked by popularity, which we judge according to how many clicks they get over the past 48 hours.
Those with the most clicks go to the top of the table, those with the least to the bottom.
We compare credit over 100 credit cards from all of the major banks and credit card providers.
However, we do not compare all the credit cards that are available in the UK.
This is because some credit card providers have offers that are only available exclusively through their own website or branch, or through other comparison websites - in the same way some credit cards are exclusively available through uSwitch.
There are also many credit cards that are only available to people in member organisations and clubs.
