Since 1986 we have provided millions of consumers with timely information on credit cards and other payment cards via printed survey lists, newsletters, the national news media, and the Internet. Starting 1988, we prepared the monthly comparative credit card tables for the Wall Street Journal. CardTrak was a pioneer in website technology launching its first website in September 1995 at the American Bankers Conference in New York City. CardTrak was later selected by Forbes magazine as one of the “Top 250 Financial Information Web Sites”. CardTrak is renowned for its fair and balanced reporting on credit card issues. Additionally, senior executives have testified in major litigation trials, assisted the GAO and other government agencies and legislators in preparing reports on credit card issues.
