Avoid Credit Cards With Two-Cycle Average Daily Balance

When applying for a new credit card make sure you check how they calculate interest. Most cards use the average daily balance method, which is what you want, but some use the two-cycle average daily balance method. The difference will be huge if you don't pay off your balance in full and end up owing interest.

No Annual Fee Credit Card Advice

There are several types of no annual fee credit cards; this would include cash back, college student, gas rewards, some auto rewards, and some travel reward credit cards. We have several no annual fee credit cards listed.

Some types of credit cards however will always have an annual fee, like airline and prepaid. The reason why these cards have an annual fee is that it costs more for the credit card company to provide these types of credit cards.

How to Activate Your Credit Card

I receive many emails asking how to activate a new credit card. The easiest and most common way to activate your card is to call the 1-800 phone number on the sticker, and call from the number you gave when you applied. This sticker can be found on the front of your credit card and you should not remove it before you have activated, you may forget and try to use it. If you put down a fake home phone number when you applied you might have a problem activating your card. If this is the case I would call customer service.

Cash Reward Credit Card Advice

There are several cash reward credit cards that CreditCardAssociate.com recommends. They each differ as far as the rewards and payment options are concerned.

A cash reward credit card is becoming one of the most popular kinds of credit cards, and for good reason. As long as you pay your balance in full you are getting a little discount on every purchase you make, but they are not created equal.

Dispute A Charge On Your Credit Card

If you find that a charge on your credit card is incorrect, you can dispute it. Mistakes can happen in many ways. For instance, you can be charged twice for an item, a server at a restaurant could exaggerate the tip, or your credit card could even be stolen.

After you discover a false charge on your statement, you should call the merchant first. The merchant phone number should be listed next to the charge. When you call the merchant make sure you have your receipt and credit card statement ready. If the merchant finds that there has been a mistake, then the charge can be retracted. You should then contact your credit card provider. Typically you can clear it up by contacting the merchant with the mistake.

Review of World of Warcraft Credit Card

Review

The World of Warcraft credit card offers a pretty mediocre reward. There are many credit cards that offer 2% cashback and you can receive a check in the mail once you reach $25.00. The WoW’s card is obviously directed at a very specific group, but it would be in the best interest of the players to apply for a cashback card instead. The 1% is a low amount and one of the lowest rebate percents of any card.

Credit Card Rewards

Nowadays most credit cards have rewards. In this article I will describe the different kinds of rewards available. There are airline miles, auto, cash back, gas, and hotel/travel.

With an airline miles card you earn either points or miles for every purchase you make. Both can be exchanged for round trip airline tickets. Some cards give you bonus miles when you sign up, but you will have to look at each card carefully because their rewards vary.

Green Dot Card

Review

The reason why people get a prepaid credit card is because they don’t have a checking account or a debit card. A prepaid card works the same way as a debit card so if you can I would recommend getting a debit card over a prepaid one, because they don’t have nearly as many fees.
