New Credit Cards

Hi everyone. I have been out of the credit card loop for a few years now, and have found out that there are some new names in credit cards that have emerged. Here are a few credit cards I never heard of before, and I am hoping someone can shed some light on how good they are. Partners First, Iberia Bank, Simmons First, PNC, and Regions.

Re: New Credit Cards

Welcome, welcome to the forums! You'll find lots of good info here, so thanks for joining this community.

I have no experience with any of these CC issuers, but I'll wait for the others to chime in. There are probably thousands of banks/CC companies out there, so if you let the forum members know what you are looking for in a card, we'll respond the best we know how.

Re: New Credit Cards

Only know of one bank that you posted...PNC is a prime bank.....Pittsburgh National Bank is what it used to stand for - I have no idea if they dropped the entire name and now use just the three letters...they have been around for a long time...

Re: New Credit Cards

Iberia Bank (nee Pulaski Bank) and Simmons First are uber prime. Both have been around for a very long time.
