🧪 Methodology: How we chose our Finder Award Winners

Our team of expert analysts use an objective rating system to determine our award winners.

  • We include all of the personal credit cards in our database - which contains every credit card we can find online
  • We compare each card's credentials with all other cards which are live in the market each month, and combine those scores over the full 12 months to calculate a final score.
  • We exclude any credit cards that are only available to a certain subset of customers based on bank patronage or location
