Before you Apply
Say no to Interest
I or you or even any multi-millionaire in the world will not be willing to pay extra than consumed amounts. Bank Cards give short-term loans for a limited period. Yes, it is both with zero interest & high interest. It totally depends upon your payment decisions.
If you pay your credit card bill within 56 days of purchase, you are free to pay only consumed amount but you will be charged interest on a daily basis after the 57th day. Do it before time to build your better credit score.
Although, there is no interest-free period on balance transfer & ATM cash withdrawal transactions. Paying full credit on time can save you from extra overload.
