Why would Credit Karma offer credit sources with such terrible rates as "Recommendations"?
"Recommendations" is a top banner item on the Credit Karma site. Credit Karma discredits itself by promoting such overpriced products.

Those recommendations are more of advertisments. Credit Karma generates revenue from advertisements and that is how it is a free service for the consumer. I do agree, most recommendations are something that you should not want or take.

Since the actual purpose of Credit Karma is to TEACH people how credit works and how to improve your credit score, once you learn the necessary skills, you can make realistic choices about which credit cards you might want.  I have gone with my credit union instead of accepting any recommendations here because of the better interest rates. We all have the right to make our own choices in anything.
