View Full Version : Ready to Change Credit Card Company:Looking for suggestions
07-03-2003, 04:16 AM
I have decided to drop the credit card I use for business transactions and want to replace it with one that offers some "bells and whistles". I am not that interested in accumulating airline miles because my husband gets enough of those on his own. I am looking for other incentives. For example, I currently have an LL Bean Visa that offers a $10 gift certificate for every $1000 (or it could be $2000) I charge.
Do you have a favorite credit card?
Oh, and it goes without saying I am not interested in annual fees!

I have a capital one card, truely no annoying phone calls, that's enough incentive for me.:D

We have some big ticket purchases on the horizon and I was interested in getting a CC with some kind of pay back also. I am with you, we don't need more airline miles nor hotel points. What to do, what to do....

You said no airline, but are you interested in hotel?
When DH was traveling, he used First USA Marriott rewards card. He also always stayed at a Marriott Courtyard and we earned TONS of free hotel stays. We like it so much that when he stopped traveling we continued to use it for personal purchases.

My first thought is Discover - gotta love that cash back! :D DH and I also recently changed to a US Bank Visa - no fees, and cash back, as well. It seems that more and more credit cards are offering something as a "perk", and many have no fees, as well!

Don't know if you have kids, but I love MBNA's BabyMint card. They give you money back on every purchase and they can link it to a 529 college account. Also, if we use the cards at certain stores (DH goes to Pep Boys a lot) we get additional cash back. They also offer a very low, competitive interest rate.
I also have a Discover card, but I never accumulated enough to get a big check back. I found the interest rate to be a bit high.
There's the GM card which gives you credit toward the purchse of a new GM vehicle.
No fees on any of the above. I won't accept a credit card that has a yearly fee.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. To Donleyk: I found this site that rates all the credit cards with comments from credit card holders. http://www.cardoffers.com/reviews/introduction.asp I hope you find it helpful in your search.
