How to Apply for a Credit Card Online

In this tutorial you are going to learn how to apply for credit card online.


Step # 1 – Find a Good Credit Card

Before you make your application it is a good idea to do some research on what credit cards are offering – it is a competitive industry and you have a lot to choose from. Visit the website “www.cardratings.com” as it has many reviews of the best cards. Click on “Best Credit Cards” at the top of the page. A page will load with options on the left and you can use these to sort the cards based on your requirements. Here we will select “Rewards Cards”.

Step # 2 – Starting an Application

From the list that appears on the right find a card that appeals to you (here we are selecting the “Gold Delta Skymiles” card) and click on the “Apply Now” button. You will be redirected to the site where you can apply for the card and simply click on the “Apply Now” option for the card you want. The application process will vary slightly depending on what card you are applying for, but overall the process is quite similar.

When you are ready to apply click “Continue to verify”.
