If you’re in the market for a credit card, CardMatchTM can be a perfect place for your search. Easy to navigate and designed to provide personalized offers, CardMatch can give you access to prequalified credit card offers, cards for your credit profile and even elevated intro bonuses.
The best part is, checking offers on CardMatch won’t knock any points off your credit score. Using the tool only triggers a soft inquiry that allows it to provide you with a list of personalized card offers and gives you a better idea of which cards you can be approved for. On top of that, you might even get a targeted sign-up bonus offer for a higher amount of cash back or points.
For example, you might currently be eligible for up to 125,000 Membership Rewards points (after $5,000 spend in the first three months) on The Platinum Card® from American Express and up to 75,000 Membership Rewards points (after $4,000 spend in the first three months) on the American Express® Gold Card.

What is CardMatch?
CardMatch is a service offered by Bankrate that matches users with personalized credit card offers based on their credit profile. The tool can match you with prequalified credit card offers that you have a good chance of being approved for, targeted introductory bonuses and special offers. Since using the platform only requires a soft pull, your credit score won’t be impacted.
At the moment, some major issuers on CardMatch include American Express and Chase.
Earn up to 125,000 points with the American Express Platinum
Targeted offers via CardMatch vary from user to user and may change every time you check the platform. For those reasons, you might not be able to find the exact offers described below.
Still, it might be a good idea to check your matches for excellent intro bonus offers like this one we found on Oct. 1, 2020.
Earn up to 75,000 points with the Amex Gold
As is the case with the Amex Platinum offer, you might get a different set of CardMatch offers when you check the platform. But we came across this deal on the American Express Gold Card when we checked the tool on Oct. 1, 2020.
Earn up to 150,000 with Hilton Honors American Express Surpass Card
On Oct. 1, 2020, we also found this offer that can be a great choice for those looking to travel soon — especially Hilton Honors loyalists. With an elevated offer of 150,000 points bonus for spending $3,000 within the first three months on Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card, you’ll get 25,000 points more than what the card regularly offers.
Note that you might not be able to see the same offer when you check CardMatch.
Other offers on CardMatch
Besides these incredible deals, there are other great offers you can find on the platform. For example, on Oct. 1, 2020, we also came across a 45,000 Membership Rewards points bonus on American Express® Green Card (after spending $2,000 in the first three months) and an increased cash bonus on the American Express Cash MagnetTM Card.
Note that such offers can be found under a “special offer” flag on CardMatch, meaning you might not be able to find them outside of the platform.
You also might notice a “prequalified offer” flag next to some of the offers. This means that you have a great chance of getting approved for the card. It’s important to remember, however, that approval is not guaranteed even with this type of offer.
How to check for targeted offers on CardMatch
It’s easy to get your card matches: Simply provide some basic information, such as your name, address and the last four digits of your Social Security number. You also have an option to opt-in and receive information about card offers in the future, as well as other useful information on credit scores and credit card news.
Once you’ve submitted the form, you’ll get matched with prequalified and other offers with just a soft pull to your credit.
Come back to CardMatch regularly
We’ll keep you updated with some of the best deals available on CardMatch in this story. Still, it’s best to regularly check the tool yourself to see if there are any good offers tailored to your credit profile. New offers get added often, and with no hard inquiry, it never hurts to check.
