One of the beautiful things about competition, especially when businesses vie for consumers is that everybody wins.  Businesses end up getting what they want (which they may end up paying more for) and consumers can shop around for the best good or service that suits their needs.  No one entity controls the market and in the end, the best business will usually prevail.

When looking at the full list of credit card deals above, it’s easy to see just how profitable a few applications can be.  All you need is the excellent credit these cards require, and you can walk away with thousands of dollars in savings.
