A few notes regarding financial responsibility:
We often provide information on our website about credit products such as credit cards. However we are not a credit provider, nor are we trying to assist you to apply for a particular credit product with a particular provider.
It is important you seek the independent advice of an appropriately qualified professional before making a decision on a product from the information you have obtained from this website.
Credit is a tool that should be used responsibly. Applying for credit cards simply for points or other introductory offers may impact future credit approvals. You should consider your own personal financial situation in consultation with an independent professional advisor.
