        We look at lots of things, including your income, your credit score, any outstanding debts and if you appear on any fraud prevention databases.

          What do I need to use the credit card eligibility checker?

          All you need are details of where you’ve lived for the last three years, your yearly income and how much you take home each month.

            Will using the eligibility checker affect my credit score?

            No, it won’t affect your credit score. Applying for a credit card and being declined can have a negative effect on your score. Being approved can have a positive effect. Our checker won’t affect your score at all.
