No they make money through affiliate programs. I used to own an affiliate network and the CC offers pay big bucks. This is just a tool that helps them generate more leads.

So I used CardMatch and it matched me with BCE and BCP from amex. I am not apping, I just wanted to know other users experiences with using cardmatch?
They soft TU on CardMatch...so if your TU is better shape than your other CR's then it could be a false positive. I'm not sure how they figure what you're matched for but I have a theory that its strictly on score. I had a month where why TU was below 700 and none of the Amex's showed up. Next month score was back up and Amex's showed up again. In full disclosure Amex pulls EX and did with me which is my worst CR and I was denied but that's a whole other story.
I agree with others here that its obviously some deal with the Credit Card companies and this site to "influence" consumers towards specific cards. Still its nice a nice ego boost when those Amex and Venture cards show up in the list.

So this is garbage! Good to know, I'm glad I wasn't in the market to app
The info and advice on this site will be far more valuable in determining which cards you will most likely be approved for.

I have been matched with the same exact cards for years....even with totally differnt scores (hundreds of points differences)....so i dont think this is very useful or accurate...
