Cash Advances - and why you should avoid them
Using your credit card for a cash advance can be a very expensive way to get your hands on some cash. Cash advances are treated differently from purchases made with your credit card – and that difference can end up costing you in extra fees and interest.
In this article we’ll explain what a cash advance is, what it means for you, and how to avoid making them – and save money in the process.
