Managing Your Credit Card

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Check out these credit card management tips.

Do:

  • Ask yourself am I using this credit card for convenience or necessity?
  • Pay off your card balances each month
  • Look for competitive credit card interest rates
  • Keep a record of any telephone or Internet credit card transactions and keep receipts until the statement comes in
  • Be aware of your credit limit, consider a personal loan if you are carrying a balance regularly

Don't:

  • Be tempted to sign up for a card purely on the basis of the loyalty or rewards scheme
  • Use your credit card if your balance is looking a bit overweight
  • Be tempted to increase your credit limit and thus continue to build greater debts
  • Make too many cash withdrawals from a credit card as charges may be higher for these direct transactions
