If you are hoping to earn the most points possible through a sign-up bonus, you shouldn’t spring for the first credit card offer that you find. Credit card issuers frequently run special offers with sign-up bonuses that are 50 to 100 percent larger than a card’s public offer. CardMatch can help match you to some of these special offers.
CardMatch is a tool from CreditCards.com that matches individuals with personalized credit card offers based on their credit score. After supplying some basic information about yourself, CardMatch will complete a soft credit check – which will have no impact on your credit score – to match you with special offers and pre-qualified card matches.
How to use CardMatch
To see which cards you're matched with, complete the following steps.
Step 1: Visit the CardMatch landing page. There, you will be asked to enter your name, address and the last four digits of your social security number.
Although not required, you can enter your email address if you wish to receive information about future credit card offers and details on how to view your free credit report.
Hit “get matches.”
Step 2: A pop-up displaying the CardMatch program’s terms and conditions will appear. After reading through the terms, accept them and hit “Submit.”
Step 3: CardMatch will begin searching for credit cards that best suit you.
Within 60 seconds, a list of credit cards that match your profile will appear.
Step 4: If you wish to apply for one of these offers, click the “Apply Now” button. You will be redirected to the credit card issuer’s page where you can complete the card application.
Should you use the CardMatch tool?
If you’re in the market for a new credit card, we recommend that you use the CardMatch tool before applying for a card. Because CardMatch sometimes provides targeted, special offers, you could possibly receive a much larger sign-up bonus than you would if you simply applied for the card using the issuer’s site. Additionally, your score will not be affected by using the tool.
Note that the cards matched to you are potential offers and not guaranteed. You must still be approved for the card by the issuer.
