While you may be getting all kinds of offers for credit cards in the mail, checking out the details will often reveal that the offers come with very high price tags. In some cases, it can cost as much as $300 to get $500 worth of credit. You can virtually always get a better deal when you apply for your MasterCard online.

It's a very simple process, and there are hundreds of companies offering MasterCards online to choose from. To get started, you simply have to look for a MasterCard with features that align with your personal needs. If you have great credit and a good income, you might want a Platinum or Gold MasterCard. If you have good credit, a Classic or regular MasterCard will be the one for you. You may want to look for a specialty card such as an airline miles MasterCard, or you may want a great introductory APR.

How to Apply Online

As noted above, the MasterCard Credit Card application process is easy. Once you've selected the card you want, you are generally asked to "Click Here to Apply." The screen that comes up will display a series of boxes, and you simply have to fill in the information as requested. In general, these screens will indicate required fields with some type of red flag or asterisk. If you do not enter data into required fields, you will get an error message and will have to go back to provide the information.

You may be given options in terms of the features you want or added features such as credit card protection. Remember that, if you select these options, they may include a monthly fee. Once you have completed your MasterCard Credit Card application online, you should have your answer in just a few minutes. If you're approved, your credit line will depend on a review of your financial status. You should receive your card within 30 days.
