Credit Card: Buy Now, Pay Later

By: Smith James

How nice is the idea of replacing the huge packs of cash with a small, cute looking plastic card! It remains there in the corner of your purse or wallet and works as a mobile cash counter, wherefrom you get money whenever you need. Neither is there any hassle of carrying the big bundles of money, nor is there any risk of losing them in the hands of snatchers or robbers.

You just carry a card and use it in all kind of purchases. This is not all that credit card can do for you. As indicated by the name, you use the card to buy things on credit and pay the bill at a convenient time. You will be given a time span within which using the card is free. If you cross the limit of the free time period, you have to pay the interest. The more you delay the payment, the higher the interest you pay.

There was a time when getting a credit card was very hard. The applicant needed to show an impressive credit record. Sometimes it was necessary to keep an amount as security deposit. The testimonial of a guarantor who is already a faithful client of the agency was necessary. With the passage of time, all these have become either less important or totally irrelevant. Over all, it is quite easy to get a credit card in today's market scenario.

Yet, there are chances that your credit card application may get rejected. There may be some genuine reasons that make the agency reject an application. So, before you apply for a credit card, make sure that you provide the authority with satisfactory information and necessary documents. Only then will there be an assurance of getting the credit card. After you get the card, make sure that you use it judiciously. It will help you avoid falling into the debt trap.
