help with selecting the right credit card

Postby jjcdm02 » Sun Jul 18, 2010 3:57 pm

I am just out of college and I am very new to credit cards. Up until this point I have only used a debit card. I just took a job with a large multi-national company and will be spending a lot of time traveling. My co-workers have suggested that I get on a rewards program to maximize the extensive air miles and hotel visits as a result of my job. I am pretty lost in the cluttered credit card market, so any suggestions would be great. Also, i have no credit history and earn a salary over 60k. Please let me know if there is more information that I should provide.

There are some credit card reviews listed on the homepage, you can check those out. Have you had any student or car loans in your name? If you are totally new to credit it won't be easy to get approved for most of what's out there.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
