Choosing the Right Card

by John_S on November 6, 2014

With a selection of business and personal banking tools, Capital One offers business, investment, and borrowing solutions. Banks offer consumer cards and balance transfer options to clients who wish to consolidate their balances.

The choice of product depends on different factors, including loyalty and rewards programs offered, credit rating, online banking and other tools, grace periods, and others. Applicants with stellar credit are offered premium cashback, travel, and low interest cards. Business cards offer discounts on entertainment and dining, business services, office supplies and staples, and more. Brand-name merchants and hotels offer discounts on qualifying purchases. With secured Capital one credit card customers make refundable deposits and benefit from low annual fees. The deposit actually serves as collateral because borrowers with poor credit often have a history of delinquent accounts and foreclosures, which makes them high risk borrowers. Borrowers with fair or tarnished credit benefit from a secured card if they use it responsibly. Borrowers who exceed the limit see their credit score plummet.
