Credit Card Shopping Tips

Are You & Your Card a Good Match?
Is your credit card a good financial partner? Sure, it’s handy in an emergency. And it does give you that sense of security you don’t get from cash. Your credit card even helps you plan for the future by keeping track of your spending real time.

But, does your card give you all the perks, benefits, and rewards that truly suit your needs? If you’re not sure, our list below could be a real eye-opener.
AAA’s advice:

  • Look for the best deal on the features that are important to you. For example, if you are an international traveler, look for a credit card with no foreign transaction fees.
  • Choose a card that complements your usage style. If you typically carry a balance, you should look for a card with a low annual percentage rate (APR). If you pay off your balance every month, you may be willing to accept a higher APR for a richer rewards program.
  • Find a loyalty program that can help you reap even more benefits, including travel, gift cards or merchandise. Compare the rules for earning and redeeming rewards and the expiration policy. Is your card “the one”? If not, AAA offers an array of credit card products with Member benefits including competitive annual percentage rates, rich rewards programs, opportunities to save on foreign transaction fees and much more.
