CompareCards was founded by Chris Mettler as a solution to the
overwhelming number of credit card offers out there today. Which issuer offered
the lowest rate? Which credit card company has the most generous reward
programs? What are my options if I don't have perfect credit? Mettler was driven to provide an informative solution
to those questions with the development of CompareCards.com.
In 2004, credit card companies still relied
heavily on direct mail to market credit card products to new customers. As the
Internet became safer and more secure, credit card companies slowly began
offering online applications. CompareCards started as a listing resource and
has grown with the introduction of virtual credit card applications. Users can
compare over 100 credit card offers side by side and utilize tools including savings
calculators, glossary of credit card terms and fee estimators to choose the
best credit card offer. Consumer Action News
named CompareCards.com one of just three sites to meet all criteria for helping
consumers get the right credit card deal.
