Last, we spoke about bank accounts – now I’ll talk about credit cards.
Do your homework and determine what credit cards your have, what interest rate and fees your paying.
First, you must be honest with yourself and decide which of these two categories you fall into:
- Credit card balances are paid in full each and every month
- You pay your credit card monthly, but carry a balance month to month
Which one are you?
If you are number #1, you are not concerned about the interest rate associated with your credit card. You pay the balance in full each and every month, so there isn’t interest charged to you. You need to look at the fees that you might incur.
If you are a number #2, you care about the interest rate and the lower the interest rate is, the less you pay each and every month while you are carrying a balance.
Are you using the right credit card for the spender you are? If not, look around to determine if there is a better option for you.
