We all have a preferred brand of credit or debit card that we use regularly. Your favorite brand might be based on longevity, on loyalty, on incentive, or on the lowest cost to you when you use the card. Just like your preferred brand, grocery stores, big box stores, restaurants, attractions, and so forth all have their preferred brands. So much so, in fact, that there are certain places that only accept that brand. That’s why it pays for consumers to have at least one credit or debit card of each of the two big brands.
Not sure which brand you prefer? Take a look at each, then compare the benefits and costs (if any) associated with each, before you make up your mind!
