Struggling with my Small Budget
I have been working hard on my credit score. I had bad vision up until yesterday when I got my glasses. I was able to read the fine print on some bills. I went to read the billing statements and found the interest rates horrible.
The scenario is familiar. At the check out counter of the local department store, the clerk asks if you would like to apply for the store's credit card. As a reward for signing, you receive an instant discount in the amount of 10% or even 15%. Do you sign on?
Think of Using Credit as Spending Money
One trap that many of us fall into is thinking about spending money and using credit as different, when both affect our monthly budget. We may buy something on credit that we would never consider paying cash for.
Simply Debt Free
The average American credit card debt is over $5,100. While it may not seem like it, this balance is manageable. Within three yeas it can easily be paid off provided that new charges are not added to the debt.
Getting The Most Out Of Your Credit Card Rewards
Most credit cards today offer a rewards program. If you use your credit cards routinely, you should check to find out if you have some rewards available. Log in to your credit card account or check your statement to see if you have rewards points.
Is It Really Priceless?
No matter what MasterCard executives want you to believe, those scenarios presented in their television advertisements are not priceless; in fact, they're quite expensive. The ads ask an array of appraisal questions all ending with the same answer - priceless.
Proper Disposal of Used Credit Cards
Over the years I have had several credit cards and saved them after their expiration date not knowing how to properly dispose them. How do I safely dispose of over 50 used credit cards?
Paying Off Credit Cards Quickly
When working on repaying my credit cards faster than minimum payments, am I better off paying $10.00 a week more or the same amount once a month? Thanks.
Small Balances Left on Pre-paid Credit Cards
I like to use pre-paid credit cards to order items online. The only thing I don't like is that there are times I have a small amount of money left on it (ex. 50 cents). Does anyone know how to use this small amount up before the credit card company starts applying their fees to it?
APR Rates After Closing a Credit Card
I'm thinking about closing a credit card account because the creditor does not want to lower my APR. I've had the card almost 2 year and pay on time faithfully. But if I cancel will the APR continually accumulate on the balance or would it be whatever is left at the time of cancellation?
Minimum Payments to Avoid Collections
Is it true that if I make payments to a hospital account on time every month they cannot sell the account to a collection agency?
Establishing Credit With A Credit Card
Can anyone help me find a good credit card to get? I make $202/month and need to build my credit so that I can start getting things that I need.
