How To Make Proper Use Of A Credit Card?
Who wants to be in debt? None does. However, sometimes, it may happen that we have to spend a lot more in a month than expected. In such situations, we can easily make use of a credit card. It makes our life a lot easier in those situations. We can spend money upto a certain limit using a credit card. Credit card issuer gives us credit for a particular period of time. After that period, we have to pay back the money to the credit card issuer. Failing to do so incurs interest on the principal amount. This leads us to Credit Card Debt.
Based on our income, transaction and credit score, the credit card issuer company decides a limit for each credit card. Credit card holders can spend money up to that limit only. Based on the further transactions, this limit can be increased. However, it is not at all recommended to max out the credit card. There is a relation between Credit Card Debt and Credit Score. If one spends up to the limit of the credit card, then the credit score of that person will be affected.
Declining credit score can lead to higher interest rate in any debt or in any loan. So, it is always recommended to plan in such a way that one needs to spend half of its credit limit at maximum. This helps to maintain a decent credit score. On the other hand, as the credit card limit is exhausted, the amount of debt is increased and if you have to face another critical situation in the next few days, it will become very difficult for you to pay the credit card bill. So, we have to keep in mind that even though we have some time, our bills must be paid in the next cycle to avoid unnecessary interest. This also allows us to maintain a balance between Credit Card Debt and my Credit.
It has been seen over the years that when people start using the maximum limit of the credit card repeatedly, it becomes difficult for them to repay the debt. Amount of debt keeps accumulating month on month. Eventually, there will be a time when Credit Card Debt and Bankruptcy will become synonymous.
