When looking for a financial product like a credit card, insurance or even a savings account, sometimes it’s hard to know where to look. How do you find the best deal?
Do you usually pick up the phone and call 20 different banks to find out who is offering the best credit card rate? Do you do a search on Google and try to sort through all of the sites trying to pick the best deal. How do you know that the product and company that you find will not raise their rates on you at the first chance they get? Sometimes I am so paralyzed by all of the different options that are out there that I am afraid to make a decision for fear of picking the wrong one.
Luckily for some of you, there is a great site for people in the UK that has almost anything they might need to make smart financial decisions. They have finance related articles that will keep you up to date in what’s happening in the financial world. They also have a quote search feature where you can do a quick search for the best deals on Credit cards, loans, Mortgages, Savings, Insurance, Banking, and investing. You can even search for products by certain categories like 0% balance transfers, or Air Miles Credit cards.
Keep in mind that a credit card should only be used when you need it for online purchases and emergencies, but at least with this kind of service you will be able to keep the cost down for those times when you do need it.
They also offer a range of financial tools that you may find useful like their reminder service that will send you a list of the best deals they have available whenever your credit card expires.
There is a money savings tip service that will send you information on personal finance, shopping, traveling, and other services that may be helpful. They also offer various free finance e-books.
As someone who is very interested in keeping up to date on the market, and learning new ways to make and save money, I think this site could be very useful. If anyone knows of any sites similar to this in Canada or the United States then let me know and I’ll post them on the site.
