Glimp is a free service, and we’re fully independent. Our business runs on commission payments made by credit card companies when we successfully connect a new customer to the credit card company. Since this commission is much less than it would cost for the credit card company to advertise, this model allows us to be independent as well as a positive resource for credit card companies.
Below we aim to help you understand how we understand which credit card is right for you, and how we can ultimately help save you time and money.
As an independent comparison site, we strive to find the best Credit Card Auckland deals so that we can get you the best offer. We use a very simple process, a short form which only takes 5 minutes to complete, to get these results fast.
Everyone has different needs and wants when trying to understand what the best credit card is for them. There’s a diverse landscape of offers and it is super important to make sure all your needs are met.
Are you someone who values a lower interest card? Or do you prefer to get rewarded by using your card with a system of points you can redeem later? Or are you after the convenience of a second card? Maybe you’d rather consolidate cards and get a new card for a balance transfer.
With all of our card’s reward programs, we make sure that our card comparisons include Airpoints compatible cards. As the frequent flyer points system of Air New Zealand, making sure your card maximizes the awarding of Airpoints is a great strategy to get free upgrades or even free flights. Maybe it’s important to you to find the best Airpoints Credit Card New Zealand has to offer.
Pro Tip 1: Select “I want awesome rewards” from the drop-down menu on our homepage to start finding a card with an amazing Airpoints offering
Airpoints Dollars can be earned on every dollar you spend – and the amount of reward you receive varies with each differnt partner.
Alternatively, your main priority might be to find a card with a super low interest rate. We can help you find the best Credit Card Hamilton has to offer today. Maybe you’ve got a card with a bit of debt on it with has a high interest rate and you’d like to reduce your payments. Glimp can help you compare different credit cards to find a card with potentially a lower interest rate than what you have with your current credit card provider.
Some of our customers use the comparison website to select the best card to use as a second card. The convenience of having a backup in case of a faulty card, or in the case of loss or theft, is reassuring in the case where you need to make an emergency payment. Our algorithm can help you choose the best card to have as a backup or secondary card for these situations.
The other main reason customers come to the comparison website is to find a card for balance transfers. A balance transfer is when you move all or part of the balance of one card to another.
This can be a good idea in the case of a preferential interest rate, or if other fees make the existing card more expensive than a new option with a balance transfer.
To summarize the main reasons people look for a new card, it is generally:
Pro Tip 2: Take your time to evaluate why you need a new credit card before starting the selection process – having a clearly defined idea of why you need your new card will really help us in providing you with the most optimal Credit Card New Zealand has to offer.
Our targeted survey aims to identify the perfect card for you by going through a process of three specifically targeted questions. We’ll review each of these now and aim to understand why they’re each important.
The first question is 1) What do you spend the most money on every month? The options you are provided to answer with vary from groceries, petrol, dining, shopping, utility and other. Your response here will help us to suggest whether a card aimed at accruing rewards points could be more relevant to you, as opposed to a low interest or even a balance transfer card.
2) The next thing we’ll ask you to identify is what you find more important out of the options we outlined earlier. You’ll get to choose between a) Low Interest rate card, b) a card designed to optimize rewards, c) a card specifically optimized for AirPoints, and d) Cashback – which is an alternate reward option where the card is optimized for cashback instead of a points program like AirPoints.
3) Lastly, we’ll ask you if you currently have another card. This way we can try to optimize our results in the case where a second card has optimal charges. If you do have another card, you’ll be asked if you’d like to transfer your existing balance from that card onto your new one.
Pro Tip 3: Don’t take longer than 5 minutes on the quiz – it’s only 3 questions so you should be able to fly though it. If you find yourself stuck on a question, reevaluate exactly why you need this car before continuing.
After you click submit and receive your suggested card matches, you’ll be presented one card from several different banking institutions. We present 5 different criteria for you to compare the best Credit Card Wellington and other similer Kiwi cities have available:
Lets review each possible criteria:
After working through our site’s survey and selection process, you should be left with an extensive list of offering for best cards to fit your individual situation from a number of financial institutions. Having each card presented under the above 5 categories makes them clearly and easily comparable, and we feel it leaves you with the best opportunity to choose the best card for you.
Be sure to pay attention to the “More Info” section on each credit card detail panel at the end of the survey. In addition to each of the five categories we use to compare cards, each card has its own key set of Benefits and Rewards.
Some of the key benefits you may find listed are as follows:
Considering all this information on the survey, there are some considerations you need to keep in mind when comparing all this data.
You may come across an APR, which is the Annual Percentage Rate – this equates to the cost of borrowing on the card.
Minimum payments are another thing to consider, these will also vary from card to card. It is effectively the minimum payment the banking partner needs from you every month.
Introductory interest rates are another way banks use to describe a balance transfer – where you are offered a very attractive interest rate for the first main debt payment onto the card. In most cases this interest rate applies to that first transfer until it is paid off.
Once you’ve carefully compared all the relevant details of the cards suggested to you based on your survey answers, it’s time to start the application process. Click the large green “Sign up now” button under the card of your choice, and you’ll be asked to enter a few basic contact details. These details are sent to whichever company you choose, and then your browser is directed to the bank’s credit card sign up page for you to complete the application. Simple!
