5 Tips for Finding the Best Chase Credit Card

By: Beth Derkowitz

Chase offers a wide variety of credit cards, with something for almost anyone. Some of their offerings include Visa, MasterCard, student and alumni cards for various colleges, business cards, travel rewards cards, retail cards and cards supporting different organizations. Here are five tips to help you choose the best Chase credit card for you:

1. Know your credit needs and habits. By knowing how you will use your credit card, you can search for a card that will fit your lifestyle. Choosing carefully can help you to save money and have a better overall credit experience.

2. Consider which features are most important to you. With so many options to choose from, it's important to identify which credit card features and terms you really need. Otherwise, it can be easy to get distracted from what's really essential by neat but less important features. Make a list of what you must have in a card, and what you would like but can do without.

3. Don't lose track of what's important. Once you know what features are essential to you, you can narrow the list of options down to just those that serve your primary need. There should still be plenty to choose from, and you can use your less essential preferences to decide which of the offers is really best for you.

4. Read the fine print. Make sure that you understand all of the terms of the credit card agreement before applying, not just the terms that you are specifically looking for. Fees, interest rates, credit limits, grace periods and rewards terms can all impact your experience using the card. Knowing all the details now can help you to get the most out of your card and avoid unpleasant surprises later.

5. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Chase has a website full of information and a well trained customer service department. If there is anything you don't understand or are unsure of, don't be afraid to contact them with your questions.
