In the past few months we’ve been adding new and improved filters to our Ultimate Credit Card Finder.
We’re always eager to refine the filters and make your search for a credit card a lot easier.
Here’s a breakdown of the newest features added to the Ultimate Credit Card Finder.
Expiring soon filter
We have approximately 200 cards in our Ultimate Credit Card Finder. Plenty of them have limited-time welcome offers.
We never want you to miss a good deal on a card, but how can we expect you to keep track of which credit card welcome offers are expiring? Once an offer expires, you may never have the chance to get it again, so you don’t want that to happen. We want you to catch every welcome offer you have your heart set on, before it expires.
Enter the Expiring Soon filter and labels, which we actually put live already a few months ago.
As one of the Card Options, under the category of best offers, you will see the Expiring Soon filter.
Once you click on expiring soon, the cards that have offers expiring within two weeks will come up.
This way you will never miss an expiring welcome offer. Check out the expiring cards every so often, see a card you want, and then get it in time before it expires!
Expiring soon label
On top of the expiring soon filter, we implemented expiring soon labels on credit cards.
As you scroll through the credit cards in the Ultimate Credit Card Finder, you might see cards with the red Expiring Soon label. So even without filtering cards with the Expiring Soon filter, by just scrolling through the credit cards, you will be notified by the red label of the offers on cards that are expiring soon.
Filter credit bureaus by your zip code
It is known to all that when you apply for a credit card, the bank does a hard pull from one of the credit bureaus to check your credit. The bank can choose to pull your credit report from one of the three credit bureaus; Experian, Equifax, or Transunion (or all three).
Different banks have different protocols for which credit bureau they pull your report from. You can check out the list here or find it on every credit card page.
However, there are instances when the bank will pull from a certain credit bureau based on the zip code where you are located and are applying from.
Therefore, in the Credit Bureau section in the Ultimate Credit Card Finder, we added a field for your zip code.
All you have to do is click on Enter My Zip Code to type your zip code in.
As soon as you put your zip code in, plus choose one of the credit bureaus, the Ultimate Credit Card Finder will filter cards from banks that pull from your selected credit bureau, and take into account your zip code if there are any exceptions or exclusions. So the Ultimate Credit Card Finder will not bring up cards that pull the credit bureaus you wish not to use if the banks will pull that credit bureau, given your zip code.
So the zip code field is there to make the credit bureau filter a lot more accurate.
It may happen that you type your zip code in and nothing comes up.
If that happens, feel free to request your zip code to be added to the database.
Filter business cards that report on your personal report
Another great detail added to the Ultimate Credit Card Finder is the option to filter card types by more than personal, business and secured cards.
We now added a filter for business cards that report on personal reports.
Most business cards do not report on your personal report but there are a select few business cards that do report to your personal credit. To find out which ones, all you have to do is filter the Ultimate Credit Card Finder to business cards on your personal report, or you can choose to unselect that box and you will not be bothered with business cards that report on your personal credit report.
These are the newest additions to the Ultimate Credit Card Finder We hope they’re being an asset to your credit card search.
