credit card selector tool made me mad

[ Edited ]

I was bored and clicked the banner that said "let myfico help you choose a credit card" so I went there and no matter which choices I picked as far as credit score and history; the only option which ever came up was capital one cash rewards green card.

Now I know that capital one pays big dollars to advertise on this site; but I think its pretty rotten to call something a "tool" to match you with cards that may fit your needs when really its just a very big advertisement for capital one. Cap 1 must pay pretty good for those referrals.

Other sites do this as well; such as truecredit and cresitkarma.

I just expected a higher standard from this site.
