Many credit card issuers provide multiple credit cards – should you stick with the same bank, or go with a different one? It turns out that this decision won’t matter when it comes to your credit, but it will matter when it comes to your peace of mind.

Do you like the card issuer you’re with, including the customer service and card terms you’ve been given? If so, it’d probably be a good idea to stick with the same issuer.

Or, if you don’t love your card issuer or just want to see what’s out there, there’s no harm in shopping around at other issuers.
