In which form can I provide you with my uncountable credit card experiences and the practical knowledge of the past 15 years, in order for you to dispose of it efficiently and choose the most appropriate credit card for you?
Lately, I have dealt with this thought intensively. I would be grateful for ideas and suggestions through the comments box. 🙂 Thank you!
The fairy tale of the “best” credit card!
There is no “best” credit card. Not even the bunch of test seals on the application pages of the banks can change that!
Perhaps you have noticed that almost every bank or every credit card company advertises with a test seal, which should apparently proof that their credit card is the best.
The truth is:
There are many good credit card offers – but there is no “egg-laying milk-bearing wool-pig” among the credit cards. Some cards fit better or even perfect to your requirements, others may not. However, somebody else will find them useful …
Every bank or every credit card company must earn money, in order to sustain a good offering. The money is earned through the customer. So, through you, if you already have and use one or more credit cards.
Perhaps you have also noticed that the providers apparently try to earn money through the customer at different points. One can recognize this from the different conditions.
So that you do not have to search for long, we have created a summary for you here …
The credit card providers earn money through you, by:
- Barclaycard (New Visa)
selling additional insurances and the foreign transaction fee.
- Advanzia Bank (Gebührenfrei MasterCard Gold)
comparably high loan interest at instalments or cash withdrawals.
- Deutsche Kreditbank (DKB Visa Card)
further products, e.g. DKB Privatkredit (private loan), DKB Broker.
This is, of course, completely okay! In the end, we smart bank customers can choose freely, for which credit card we apply and how we use it.
I know from many readers or our committed community that they have several credit cards and use them selectively. I have heard of nice examples, how several credit cards can be combined in the use, so that one can speak of a very clever usage behaviour.
Help other bank customers!
