With so many options available, deciding the best credit card can seem complicated. To achieve this, you need to see your profile, needs, and goals.

First, see what your consumption habits are. For example, if you tend to shop more at supermarkets, perhaps a credit card that gives rewards for that category would be ideal.

How much are you willing to pay for a credit card? You need to compare annual fees, foreign transaction fees, maintenance fees, and so on.

If you don't already have a credit score, selecting a card that works as a credit creation tool is best to switch to a better option later on.

Among the remaining options, check out which ones have worthwhile rewards programs, see if the credit card offers a Welcome Bonus, what the customer service is like and if it is accepted worldwide.

Now that you know how to choose a credit card for the first time, you are ready to start your financial trail! Remember to use it wisely to be an ally, not a hindrance.
