Are you looking to get a credit card to help manage your finances. In this article we discuss the printable credit card application. What it is and is it available today and if so where you can find this service.
Why Printable Credit Card Applications?
For some people they may not feel safe passing their personal details to a bank online for fear of identity theft. This can be understandable as most people do not have an understanding of the security measures in place.
There are many benefits of applying through an online form over the old method of using a printable credit card application. What are these benefits:
– 128 bit SSL encyption
– Less chance of error
– Direct to the bank, less chance of being picked up en route in the post
Due to the security measures in place online credit card applications are very safe and its virtually impossible to crack the SSL encryption. When you look at the address of the web page you have to ensure it is secure and on https not http.
When using a printable credit card form you can easily make mistakes or miss out important sections which will only delay the process in getting your credit card. When you apply online though the error checking is normally done very well to ensure all the relevant areas are filled in and in the correct format.
Where Can You Get Printable Credit Card Applications
If however you prefer to still use a form to apply then you may still find some companies who offer the option to download forms and post or you can ask at your local bank for a credit card application form.
Some banks that may still offer a printable credit card application are HSBC, scotiabank and axis bank. You will find most large banks are now moving exclusively to the online application due to the issues I mentioned earlier in the article.
