According to JD Power and Associates’ 2019 Credit Card Satisfaction Study, customer satisfaction is at an all-time high for the last thirteen years they have been conducting the study. Using a 1000 point index, the study measures customer satisfaction with credit cards by examining six key factors: interaction; credit card terms; billing and payment process; rewards; benefits and services; and problem resolution. The 2019 study found that only about one third of customers fully understand all the benefits offered, which translates in higher satisfaction scores, while the rest are overall less satisfied with their card.
Overall satisfaction is at a record high of 806, surpassing the previous high of 802 in the 2017 study. Nevertheless, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reported 15,232 consumer complaints relating to credit cards in 2019.
