CardHub.com is a credit card comparison website owned and operated by Evolution Finance, Inc., a personal finance company founded in 2008 and based in Washington, DC in the United States.[1] It is the sister site to WalletHub.com.[2]

CardHub serves primarily as an online credit card marketplace, and also operates a social gift card exchange[3] and frequently releases studies on the credit card industry.[4]

History[edit]

The site was started on July 15, 2008[5] by Odysseas Papadimitriou, a former executive with Capital One.[6] It added charge card comparison tools on October 14, 2008, [7] a Debt Center on July 27, 2009,[8] and a social gift card exchange on April 21, 2010. [9] Card Hub’s gift card application for Facebook launched on December 3, 2009.[10]

The company launched a blog, Wallet Blog, in December 2008.[11]

In September 2012, Card Hub announced a new generation of credit card calculators [12] that enable consumers to quickly determine which credit card will save them the most money on interest and escape debt faster.

Services[edit]

The company operates a database of credit cards[13] and prepaid cards.[14] The site's gift card exchange allows users to buy and sell gift cards directly amongst each other or through the website itself,[15][16] and also provides various product comparison tools and a personal finance education center.[17]

CardHub was named one of the Best Credit Card websites by the nonprofit Consumer Action.[18]
