Want to find cheap credit cards? Your best source for information on cheap credit cards is a Web
site that not only lets you view the offerings of a variety of credit card companies but also gives
you reviews of the various cards by cheap credit card users.

Let's take a look at one site that gives us a glimpse into more than 70 credit cards, some of them
cheap credit cards, from many countries of the globe.

The first, the American Express Blue credit card, was reviewed ten times (score is from one to
ten, with one being the worst and ten being the best.) Interestingly enough, this credit card had
ratings that ran the gamut from one to ten. Overall, its valuation as a cheap (as opposed to more
costly) credit card was 7.9, which is quite good. Customer service rating on this card was not
quite as good, but better than average at 6.2. 90 percent of the reviewers, or nine out of ten,
recommended this as a good buy if you're looking for quality but cheap credit cards.

33 cheap credit cards users reviewed the Aspire Visa credit card. This didn't look to be a good
choice for cheap credit card, according to these reviews. Only nine percent of the Aspire cheap
credit card users recommended its use, and for overall value as a good buy in cheap credit cards
its rating was one out of ten.

Accucard credit card, however, even with only two reviews, was a strong recommendation if
you're in the market for cheap credit cards. Both reviewers gave this cheap credit card a rating of
ten out of ten. What could be better? One reviewer said that this credit card has great rates and
low annual fee (making it a top notch choice when comparing cheap credit cards) and, in fact,
you have a lot of variety with this card, actually choosing your rate and credit card, and changing
that choice as your needs or budget changes.

The second Accucard reviewer said that it was the best of the cheap credit cards, currently
offering 1.6 percent cash back the first six months you use the card.

Virgin credit card, according to the twelve cheap credit cards reviewers that rated it on this site,
doesn't seem to be the best choice in cheap credit cards. The overall rating is a very low 1.8 out
of ten. At first glance it looks like some pretty extensive accounting and customer service errors
on the part of this cheap credit card company. One reviewer talked about a nightmare experience,
especially if you've chosen this card because you need cheap credit cards. First they overcharged
the interest, and then they corrected it but overcharged again. Another reviewer said the interest
rate on this allegedly cheap credit card went to over 24 percent without any notice.

For customer service the Virgin cheap credit card earned a 1.4 out of ten from these reviewers.
The same rating was given for value (not one of the cheap credit cards, according to these folks.)
Its overall value was a two, with recommendations to purchase from only 17 percent of the
reviewers.
