Top five credit card predictions for 2010

Credit card companies battered and abused credit credit users throughout 2009 -- raising interest rates, cutting available credit and closing the cards of millions of credit card users -- as they rushed to raise profits before the start of the Credit CARD Act on February 22, 2010.

Now that we're just about a month away from the start of the CARD Act, I contacted three key credit card websites to collect their predictions for the credit card market in 2010. Those contacted include Bill Hardekopf, CEO of LowCards.com, Ken Lin, CEO of Credit Karma, and Odysseas Papadimitriou, CEO of CardHub.com.
