Strategies to lure new customers used by credit card lenders

[February 09, 2011]

The credit card industry is highly competitive today with a number of players in the market looking to increase their customer base, and is leveraging various strategies to make sure they get new customers. To add to their concerns, the credit card reform act, which has recently come into existence, has limited a lot in terms of revenues for them. Hence, the banks are bending over backwards to increase their customer database to make up for the loss in revenue. This, to a certain extent, works in the favor of customers, especially the ones who have a good credit score to back them up.

Beware of gift card and its hazards

[January 13, 2011]

Gift cards are popular during festive season, and most people find this a convenient gifting option. However, they come with high fees, and other hazards that make them pretty worthless. It is worthwhile to check out the card`s features before using it. Most often, retailers as well as banks charge fees on the gift cards that remain unused. Gift cards also come with an expiry date, thus rendering them useless. Both the federal as well as state rules will offer consumers some protection from these provisions, but it is still better to be on the side of caution say the Consumers` Union.

This new design is in trial mode currently but Visa has pans to roll out its new design to other financial institutions in order to increase the branding and logo visibility of the individual issuing banks.

It really pays when you do the right thing. Take credit cards for instance, having a clean credit profile really does help. Those who managed to maintain a squeaky clean credit report during the recession can now jump with joy, as they will get some of the best deals from credit card issuers.
