These are our principles:

  • Financial decisions have a big impact on your life, so accuracy and honesty are important in everything we do.
  • We provide fact-checked information written in precise, clear language.
  • Advertising relationships with credit card issuers do not influence our opinions and ratings of cards.
  • We discuss topics consistently throughout the site. Readers will not find any conflicting information or opinions from one article to the next.
  • We regularly review articles for outdated or incorrect information, and revise them accordingly. When readers contact us about something that seems incorrect, we’ll check and fix errors swiftly.
  • Credit cards are powerful financial tools, so we believe credit-related decisions should be carefully considered. We don’t think credit cards are right for everyone.

If you have any questions, please contact us and someone will get back to you right away.
