5 Tips for Finding the Best Morgan Stanley Credit Card

by : Beth Derkowitz

Morgan Stanley is the issuer for a variety of Discover cards as well as several UK only credit cards. Here are five tips to help you choose the best Morgan Stanley credit card for you:

1. Know your credit needs and habits. How much do you usually spend on your credit cards, and how quickly do you pay off the balance? Are you looking for a card to make a large purchase with? A card to shop with when you travel? A card where you can earn cash back on daily household expenses like gas and groceries?

2. Consider which features are most important to you. Knowing how you will use your card is helpful in deciding which options and terms are most essential and which are nice but not important. Make a list of the options you want and prioritize them to give you a picture of what your ideal credit card agreement would look like, and also what you are willing to do without.

3. Compare all of your options. There are several options available from Morgan Stanley, and all of them have good features that may be a perfect fit for different lifestyles. By considering all of your options, you can select the one that is best for you rather than one which is just ok.

4. Read the fine print. Make sure that you read the terms of the credit card agreement carefully before applying. Your top requirements are the most important factors, but you should also be aware of all the other terms. Fees, interest rates, credit limits, grace periods and rewards terms can all affect how you use the card. When looking at rewards programs, remember to check which transactions earn points, and whether those points expire after a certain amount of time.

5. Don't be afraid to ask questions. If there is anything you don't understand or are unsure of, don't be afraid to contact Morgan Stanley's customer service department and ask for information.
