Credit Cards For People With Excellent Credit

 

These cards from our partners require an excellent credit rating for approval. There are many benefits to maintaining an excellent credit rating. The higher your credit rating, the lower the interest rate that you may be offered. For cards with 0% introductory APR's, applicants with higher credit ratings may be offered longer introductory periods.

Information About Credit Cards for People with Excellent Credit
 
 

When you apply for any type of credit, be it a credit card, a new mortgage, or a car loan, the lender will use your credit score to determine whether you qualify for a loan. And not only that, the rates and terms that govern the loan are also decided upon on the basis of your credit rating.

The higher your credit score, the more attractive you look to lenders and the better terms you will be offered. Credit scores run from 300 to 850; most people score between 600 and 800. For your credit rating to be considered excellent, your score needs to be above 720, but even if your score falls between 620 and 720, you still have a good credit rating.

Credit cards for people with excellent credit offer the most favorable interest rates and they also offer the best terms. For example, if you submit a credit card application for a 0 APR credit card, credit cards for good and excellent credit will typically give you the 0 APR for a longer introductory term. If you look through our section on credit cards for people with good credit, you might notice that in some cases, the same cards appear both in the section with Credit Cards for People with Good Credit and in the section with Credit Cards for People with Fair Credit. These credit cards use sliding scale APR's and different 0 APR periods, and this allows them to approve people with different credit levels.

Because of their lower rates and better terms, good credit credit cards can save you money over time. You will also save considerably on any mortgage or car loan you may take out, so it pays to keep your credit score high. To keep your score high, make sure you pay your bills on time, don't take out too much debt, and don't apply for new credit too frequently.
