Credit Cards Do's and Dont's

There is a lot of truth in the advice that credit cards are not a substitute for not having money. Every time you use a credit card this should be the theme replaying in your mind. And you would do good to remember the following too.

Do's.

* Always plan for the purchases that you need and those that you want. You need the essentials, and you want everything else. The ability of making a distinction between them might help you plan wisely.

* If caught up in financial difficulties, it's always good to talk to the issuer who might re-schedule your payments. If you simply default, that only helps to build up an unfavorable credit history and you might find yourself being denied credit next time.

* Unless it is an emergency, staying within your credit limits will help you a great deal. If you must spend over the limit, ensure you are within the manageable levels, say within 30 percent.

* And if your mail is flushed with more favorite deals than you currently are enjoying, you may ask your card issuer for a better deal. They want to retain you as their customer, so they will listen.

Dont's

* Do not use your credit card to make house hold purchases. It's expensive in the long run.

*Do not just pay the minimal amount. You will end up paying exorbitant interest. The quicker you clear the debt the better.

* Do not use the credit card to purchase things you can't afford.
