Better Best Offers

23

As you know, we take pride in maintaining what we believe is the best credit card offers page on the web: Best Credit Card Offers.  There, we list all of the best public offers we know of, regardless of whether or not we earn commission from those cards (in most cases we do not).  But, up until now, that page was… how can I say this politely… butt-ugly.

Over the past few weeks we’ve been working towards making our credit card displays better. Not only were the card displays ugly before, but they were virtually unreadable on smartphones. While we’re still working on a few tweaks, we’re pretty much there. The new format is live on our Best Credit Card Offers page and will soon be live on all pages that display credit card information.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Better looking, especially on mobile! (see below for examples)
  • We now show our estimated first year value on the Best Offers page. Click the value for details of how these estimates are calculated.
  • Better organized: All information about the welcome bonus is now grouped together in a gray box.  Below that box is information about the card itself (not just the bonus).
  • Modular design: This doesn’t really help the reader, but it will help us tremendously.  An example is with our Top 10+ pages.  There, instead of showing the full details about each card, we can show just the signup bonus information.  This way, it is easier to compare across cards since each one takes up less vertical space.
  • Click for more details (coming soon).  This is not yet fully implemented but the goal is this: Each card will have a dedicated page with a lot more information about the card perks, rewards, signup details (Are you eligible for the bonus? How to get approved? etc.), whether to keep or cancel, and so on.

What follows is a quick “before and after” show and tell.  First, here are images (which won’t respond to the width of your device):

Before (Desktop View)

Old Smartphone view is not shown. Trust me, it was bad.

New Desktop View

New Mobile View

Real Life Views

Here’s the same card in the old and new view dynamically rendered. Please view this in a web browser rather than an email client or rss reader as I have no idea how the displays will look in those cases.  Note that these will look different depending upon whether you view them on a desktop browser or a smartphone:
