Just in time for the holidays, credit card issuers have started rolling out a slew of new solicitations and come-ons to lure new customers into applying. Since the holidays are a time when many of us give our credit cards a workout, we decided to take a look at the new offers and determine if some of them could help you through a time typically defined by budget-squeezing.

WalletPop contacted a pair of credit card pros -- Curtis Arnold, founder of CardRatings.com, and Douglas Miller, senior analyst for cards and banking at research firm Corporate Insight- - to help us sift through the myriad offers out there and come up with the best ones for big holiday spenders.
