FAQs

When selecting a credit card in the UAE, consider factors such as annual fees, interest rates, rewards programs, benefits like travel insurance or cashback, and acceptance at your preferred merchants.

You can compare credit cards in the UAE by examining their features, benefits, fees, and rewards programs. Online comparison tools or financial websites can also help you make an informed decision.

Annual fees for credit cards in the UAE vary depending on the card issuer and the type of card. They can range from AED 0 to several thousand dirhams, sometimes waived for the first year or offered as part of a promotion.

Interest rates for credit cards in the UAE can vary widely, ranging from around 30% to 40% per annum, depending on the card issuer and the type of card.

Credit cards in the UAE offer various rewards and benefits, including cashback, airline miles, discounts on dining or shopping, access to airport lounges, travel insurance, and complimentary concierge services.

In addition to annual fees and interest rates, credit cards in the UAE may have other charges such as late payment fees, over-limit fees, foreign transaction fees, and fees for cash advances.

You can apply for a credit card in the UAE by comparing based on rewards and features. We recommend you use Soulwallet’ s comprehensive comparisons. a) Best Cashback Credit Cards b) Best Skywards Credit Cards c) Best Balance Transfer Credit Cards d) Best No Annual Fee Credit Cards e) Best Premium Credit Cards

Comparing credit cards allows you to find the best fit for your financial needs and lifestyle. It helps you identify cards with the most favorable terms, benefits, and rewards.

Factors to consider include annual fees, interest rates, rewards programs, introductory offers, benefits (such as travel insurance or purchase protection), and additional fees (like foreign transaction fees or late payment charges).

Credit cards come in various types, including rewards cards, cashback cards, travel cards, balance transfer cards, and secured cards. Each type offers different benefits and features.

The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) represents the yearly cost of borrowing money through the credit card. It's crucial to compare APRs, especially if you plan to carry a balance, as lower APRs can result in less interest paid over time.

Consider your spending habits and preferences when evaluating rewards programs. Choose a program that offers rewards or points in categories you frequently spend on, such as groceries, dining, travel, or gas.

While annual fees and APRs are commonly known, be mindful of other fees like foreign transaction fees, balance transfer fees, cash advance fees, and penalty fees for late payments or exceeding the credit limit.

It depends on your financial goals and spending habits. Sign-up bonuses offer immediate benefits, while long-term rewards can provide ongoing value. Consider both aspects to make an informed decision.

Assess the potential value of the card's benefits by analyzing your typical spending habits. Compare this value against the card's annual fees and any additional expenses related to card maintenance. Take into account the convenience factors, especially for travel or lifestyle needs. Benefits such as complimentary airport lounge access, golf offers, airport transfers, valet service, dining discounts, etc., can swiftly offset the annual fee within a short timeframe.

Once you've compared credit cards, streamline your choices according to your preferences and apply for the card that suits your financial requirements and lifestyle best. With Soulwallet, you can either submit a brief request or apply directly with the banks.
