Best Deal on a Credit Card
Although applying for a credit card has become a lot easier, deciding on which particular credit card to apply for is becoming more and more complicated as it entails a lot of thinking.
Some important questions to ask yourself before applying for a credit card are do you prefer to pay for the credit monthly or carry a balance? How much credit line limit can you afford? These two very important aspects need a lot of decision making on your part in order to decide on which card suits your requirements.
Always look for a card that offers the lowest interest rate regardless if you want to carry a balance forward or if you plan to pay for the credit monthly. The credit limit should be the established as the minimum limit that would fit your needs since a credit card is for necessity and not for luxury. After deciding on the minimum limit, negotiate an additional 30% add-on to the limit to keep you covered in case of an emergency.
The best card is one that has the lowest annual percentage rate (APR) and the length of their grace periods before interest charges are applied to your purchases.
Ask the issue for any hidden fees including penalty rates, over the limit charges and late payment charges.
When choosing a card, always remember to get the one that would best fit your needs and at the same time the best deal you could get out of it.
