Methodology for Selecting the Best Credit Card Deals
To identify the best credit card deals, WalletHub’s editors regularly compare the latest terms available on 1,500+ credit card offers, including cards from WalletHub’s partners and any new credit cards.
Given that people’s needs vary, WalletHub’s editors look for credit card deals in a handful of key categories, including travel rewards, cash back, no annual fee, 0% APR and balance transfer. Each category has its own unique requirements for deal status. WalletHub’s editors also use data from the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditure Survey to estimate how much cardholders would earn or save with each card.
Only standout terms can get a card on the best deals list. So understanding the overall credit card landscape is critical to understanding what qualifies as a credit card deal as well as how WalletHub’s editors make their selections.
