Top Credit Card Offers for 2015

CompareCards Lists the Top Three Credit Card Offers in Five Categories

CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - January 08, 2015) - 2015 is shaping up to be the year of credit card technology, and with the United States leading the race in payment-card fraud, it's about time! This year consumers can expect to receive credit cards equipped with EMV technology, which should ease concerns of fraud for card-present transactions. We also expect to see more merchants processing payments using Near Field Communication (NFC). Consumers should, however, expect to see some of the same great credit card offers as last year.

CompareCards, a credit card comparison website, put together a list to help consumers find the best offers available from major credit card issuers. The Top Credit Card Offers of 2015 will help consumers choose a card tailored to their own needs and interests for 2015.

The credit cards in each category were determined by a set of calculations and specific factors relating to their category (i.e. no annual fee for the Top Cash Back Credit Cards).
