Customer Support Department

Thank you for visiting the CreditCards.com Customer Support Department. Please review the information outlined below, which provides answers to commonly asked questions.

Existing Credit

Card Accounts Questions regarding payments, disputes, billing, interest rates, lost/stolen cards, suspected fraud or any other topic related to an existing credit card account should be directed to the credit card issuer. You can also reach your card issuer's customer service department by calling the toll free number listed on the reverse side of your credit card.

Application Status

The issuer for the card you selected determines whether a credit card application gets approved or denied. Response time generally depends on the applicant's credit history. Banks are required to provide written notification of both approvals and denials.

Once you are approved, delivery of the credit card may take several weeks. Contact the card issuer for more information.

Credit Card Terms and Conditions

To learn more about any credit card featured on this site, click on the card's "apply here" button. This does not obligate you to apply, but simply redirects you to the card issuer's web site, where you will find specific information on the card's terms and conditions.

Credit Quality and Bad Credit

Banks determine an individual's credit quality based on that applicant's credit score.

You should use your best judgment in determining your credit quality, based on your individual credit history and credit score. You can get an estimate of your credit score by using the CreditCards.com credit score estimator.

Consumers with bad credit still have options when it comes to applying for a card. CreditCards.com features a number of products for individuals looking to establish, repair or rebuild their credit at http://www.creditcards.com/bad-credit.php.

Credit Card Recommendations

As an objective source of information, we cannot provide individual credit card recommendations. Our goal is to empower consumers in their decision-making process by providing information and tools, including a Credit Card Finder that can help narrow credit card choices.
