If your future goals include owning a home, buying a car, owning your own business, or traveling, having a credit card can be an excellent first step. With credit card services from leading issuers like American Express, Bank of America, Capital One, Chase, Citibank, Discover, First PREMIER® Bank, HSBC Bank, IBERIABANK, MasterCard, Simmons First and Visa, you can find the best credit card for you at Credit.com.

The key to success with credit cards is to know how to use them to your advantage and not to get caught up in the traps that lurk behind the benefits. Credit.com offers many kinds of credit card benefits, from airline and gas rewards to cashback cards, and the first step is filling out a credit card application online. You can also apply for specialty credit cards, such as student credit cards or business credit cards. Credit.com also offers credit cards for the United Kingdom and Canada.

In addition to credit cards, Credit.com offers three other card options that can provide excellent choices for people with less-than-perfect credit: Prepaid cards from Mastercard and Visa allow you to load money onto the card and then use it like any other major credit card. They require no credit approval and carry the same fraud protection as the regular cards. But fees can be high, so be sure to shop carefully for a prepaid card.

Secured cards require you to open a bank account and deposit funds in a bank account (security deposit) in case you can't pay the bills. You'll get a major credit card you can use anywhere those types of cards are accepted. Shop carefully for a secured card to avoid costly fees.

Debit Cards issued under the Visa card or Mastercard name can be widely used and carry fraud protection. But if your card number is stolen and used, you'd want to find out immediately. Otherwise, you could bounce checks. One strategy: Have two checking accounts and associate your debit card with the one with the small balance. Just transfer the purchase amount into the account before you buy something with the card.

The Pros and Cons of Prepaid Cards

Prepaid cards offer the convenience of a credit card without the difficult approval process or risk of getting into debt. These cards work a lot like a gift card, you will have to load the account with cash (direct deposit is usually available) before you can use it for a purchase

Prepaid cards are not credit cards; you cannot spend more than the balance you have deposited and you will not be charged interest for your spending. The prepaid account will not be reported to the credit bureaus as a credit card.

Pros:
Cons:

Fees and charges can vary significantly between different prepaid credit card offers. Be sure to read the fee schedule for the prepaid credit card before you apply.
