Experts Recommend Cash Back Cards for Christmas

By: Reno Charlton

Experts are recommending that consumers planning to use a credit card for their Christmas shopping opt for a cash back card in order to make the most of their expenditure, as this will enable them to earn back some money on the amount that they spend over the Christmas period. Cash back credit cards have become increasingly popular over recent years, and a number of credit card companies offer these rewards based cards.

With just under two months to go to Christmas experts are urging consumers to get their acts together and start making applications right away for their credit cards. This is to ensure that they get them in plenty of time in light of the longer processing times often in place over the Christmas period. For those planning to put Christmas on the credit card a cash back card is a very popular and effective option, enabling the consumers to earn money back on their spending and therefore cutting the cost of Christmas.

There are a number of impressive cash back deals available at the moment, and depending on which credit card issuer you opt for you could enjoy earning an impressive sum of cash back on your spending. If you tend to spend a great deal on gifts and other purchases you could make a tidy sum by using one of these credit cards. Amongst the deals on offer are a 5% cash back card from Abbey on which customers can earn this high level of cash back when spending at major supermarkets.

However, it is important to remember that the cash back credit card is not suited to all consumers. Those that do not repay their Christmas spending in full within the interest free period will not benefit, because their cash back will be counteracted by the interest that they are charged on the credit card. The cash back credit card is more suited to those that intend to put most of their Christmas spending on the card but will then repay it after Christmas within the interest free period.

Those that want to spread the cost of Christmas will find that a 0% purchase credit card will prove more beneficial, as these cards will allow you to repay the amount that you spend over a longer period without incurring any interest charges.
