Credit Card
Eligibility Calculator

A few years ago, the only way to know if you'd be accepted for a credit card was to apply, but that leaves a mark on your credit report that lenders could see, impacting your ability to get credit in future. Our Eligibility Calculator uses a 'soft search' (that lenders can't use) to calculate and show your percentage chance of getting top credit cards.

  1. 1. Choose the right type of card for you

    Don't know what you're looking for? We describe below what the cards do to help you choose

  2. 2. Fill in our form, and we check your chances
    Shield lock with papers

    It should only take a few minutes, and our search won't impact your credit score

  3. 3. See which cards you have the best chance of getting
    80% accepted

    Compare your scores and the cards' features, then choose and apply

New. Some cards now give 100% acceptance chance - meaning you're pre-approved to get them.
