Credit Cards for People with Good Credit
There are no exact numbers that say what FICO score in considered “good” but common understanding is that a base FICO score around 640-720 is called good credit. With such a score, you can expect to get almost all of the best credit card offers. However, some of the most desirable credit cards can still be out of reach, depending on other considerations (banks do not rely only on FICO score in an approval process).
Here are our editor’s picks for the best credit cards for good credit:

Despite the common myth about American Express Superiority, you can get many American Express cards with just a good credit score.
One disadvantage with a good credit score is that you can find that your personalized credit cards offers will be at the high APR range than for those who have excellent credit.
The best way to transition from good credit to excellent is by following a strict rule of not carrying a balance on a card and using no more than 10%-30% of a combined credit limit on all your cards – it will keep your debt utilization ratio low. Of course, this comes after a basic “Pay all your bills on time, always” rule.
