Highlights that you might want to consider include being able to manage your credit account online, or via a mobile app. Some card providers also offer text messaging services or email alerts to let you know when payments need to be made or when a new statement can be viewed, both of which can help you to keep on top of your finances.
If you’ve been caught out in the past and have been the victim of fraud, which, in turn, made getting credit difficult, look out for dedicated fraud monitoring for peace of mind.
Some credit lenders will also let you run a ‘soft’ credit check before you actually apply for a card. This is a good way of making sure that you’ll be accepted before you submit a formal application. It’s worth considering because every time you apply for credit it will show up on your credit history. If lenders can see you’ve applied for lots of credit or had credit refused, then it could make them think twice about lending to you.
