    Credit Card - MoneySupermarket 'Smart Search'

    Credit Card - MoneySupermarket 'Smart Search' 13th Mar 08 at 10:50 AM

    My car insurance is up for renewal next month, and after shopping around I've found the cheapest policy. Usually I pay monthly, but after working out how much interest I'm paying, I've decided I'm going to try and get a 0% spend credit card.

    So last week, I ran a search on MoneySupermarket's 'Smart Search', and I come up as 'Needs Improvement'. I found this a bit iffy as I pay off my current CC every month. Because of this, I decided to get a Credit Report from Experian.

    After looking through that I can't see anything that would bring down my 'credit score'. I'm on the Electoral Roll, I have a student account (which for some reason isn't on the report) and everything is saying that I haven't missed a payment.

    Therefore what I'm asking is, how reliable is the 'Safe Search'?
