Is a credit card right for you?
Credit cards can have a number of advantages if they’re used wisely. It's a good idea to look at the pros and cons to see if they're right for you.
Credit cards can be a convenient way to spend when you need to and pay back later, and as a backup when you’re travelling. They can be useful in emergencies and many also offer great rewards and other benefits. But they can also have some downsides that you need to be aware of before applying for one.
In this article we’ll look at some of the benefits and potential pitfalls, to help you decide whether a credit card could be a good option for you.
