No Overlimit Fee
No Over-the-Limit Fee. You won’t pay an over-the-limit fee if your credit card balance goes over your credit limit.
Let’s say your credit card limit is $5,000. One month, you spend more than your limit on the card. Some credit card companies will charge you between $25 and $35 for this mistake. If your card advertises no overlimit fee, you won’t be charged a penalty for your spending.
No Penalty APR
This credit card comes with a No Penalty APR. You won’t default to a higher APR if your payment arrives on or after day 60.
Baggage Delay Insurance
Baggage Delay Insurance. Should your bags be delayed, this credit card can cover the cost of purchasing essential items.
Extended Warranty Insurance
Extended Warranty Insurance. This credit card extends the original manufacturer’s warranty of an item. You get the benefits of an extended warranty without purchasing the store’s expensive extended warranty.
Imagine that thing you bought at full price goes on sale the next week. With this credit card’s Price Protection benefit you can get back the difference between the sales price and what you paid. You can only claim this benefit for the exact item: same model; same manufacturer; same everything.
Let’s say you bought a round-trip ticket to Orlando for $750, but two weeks later, the airline has a sale. Everything is the same, except it now costs $500. If you had a price protection guarantee on your credit card, your credit card company would refund you $250. Contact your credit card company to find out specifics on how to get the money back.
Purchase Protection. If that thing you bought is stolen or accidentally damaged within a specific period of time, you’re covered. The credit card company may reimburse you up to the full purchase price.
Rental Car Insurance
Rental Car Insurance. This credit card covers any damage from collision or theft on most rental vehicles, up to the value of the car.
Travel Accident Insurance
Travel Accident Insurance. If you’re ever in an accident while on a vehicle licensed to transport the general public, you’ll want this insurance. It covers injuries from losing an eye or a limb all the way up to death.
Trip Cancellation Insurance
Trip Cancellation Insurance. You can have your non-refundable fees refunded if your cancellation reason meets certain criteria determined by the credit card company.
Trip Interruption Insurance
Trip Interruption Insurance. You can claim up to 150% of your unused, prepaid trip costs if it was for a qualified reason.
Emergency Cash Advance
Emergency Cash Advance. If your credit card is lost, damaged or stolen, you can ask the credit card company for some emergency cash. They will authorize the payment, which you can collect from a designated financial institution.
Emergency Card Replacement
Emergency Card Replacement. Whether your card is lost, stolen or damaged, the credit card company can provide help as soon as next day. It doesn’t matter if you’re still on vacation, the credit card company will mail a replacement to you wherever you are. This will be done free of charge.
The credit card company’s Fraud Protection keeps your account safe from unauthorized charges. In fact, once the charges are proven fraudulent, you will be guaranteed a refund. All you have to do is check your statement. If you find something wrong, contact the credit card company and file a claim.
Identity Theft Protection
Identity Theft Protection. This monitors the internet to see if your personal information is being bought, sold or traded online. This covers your credit card information, driver’s license, social security number, or other sensitive or personally identifiable information.
Zero Liability. If you didn’t buy it, don’t pay for it. You will not be held responsible for any unauthorized charges that appear on your account.
Sign Up Benefits
Promo Rate. This credit card comes with a promotional “promo” rate, which is usually significantly lower than your regular interest rate. This is only valid for the first few months after you open the credit card, then the regular rate applies.
Let’s say your credit card has an introductory rate of 0% APR for 15 months. When that expires, you pay the regular interest rate (22.49%). To maximize your promotional rate benefit, your balance should be paid off before the end of the introductory period. Failure to do so will mean that the interest rate on the remainder of your balance will skyrocket.
Once approved for this credit card, you may get Welcome Points that you can use for other benefits. These include travel, high-end merchandise, discounts, or bill credits. Each card has different requirements for using the points.
0 Intro APR for Balance Transfers
Zero Introductory APR for Balance Transfers. With this credit card, the APR for the balance(s) you transfer will be 0% for the limited time-frame. After this promotional period ends, the regular interest rate applies.
For example, a credit card has an introductory offer of 0% APR for 12 months on balance transfers. The regular interest rate is 18.99%. You must transfer your balances completely to the new card by the 45th day from opening the card. Those balances will have no interest applied until the end of the 12th month. Balances that remain after the 12th month, or transferred after the initial 45 days will have the regular APR applied.
No Blackout Dates
No Blackout Dates. With this credit card, you avoid dates when travel rewards and other special discounts and promotions are unavailable.
No Foreign Fees
No Foreign Fees. With this credit card, you won’t pay any fees on any transactions you make while traveling overseas.
