High Credit Limits

[August 15, 2008]

Owners of high limit credit cards are proud of their status which speaks of the bank's favor and trust. Limit increase doesn't come by itself, sometimes it takes years of disciplined card use to prove the bank you've deserved it a better credit card deal. The day when you receive a statement offering to extend your credit line makes you happy and full of spending expectations.

But there some rare cases when a person, once offered an extended credit line, rejects the privilege. Or worse even, the person does accept the increased limit but later decides to lower it to the previous amount. The reason is put up simple: why borrow such a huge amount, when you are barely going to spend 20% of it?

Balance Transfer Credit Cards FAQ

[July 15, 2008]

Balance transfer credit cards are ideal when it comes to heavy balances. Shifting your high-rate balances to a card with much lower rates is a good idea. However, when choosing the right balance transfer card you should take a closer look at balance transfer fees, as they can be pretty hefty.

These days, it can be troublesome to find a card with no balance transfer fees. Due to a tough economic situation, creditors have pulled such credit offers from the market. However, it doesn't mean that you cannot find an offer with fair terms. With a wide variety of balance transfer cards on offer, you can always make a good deal!

Lost Credit Cards

[July 01, 2008]

One of the things most people would hate to lose is a credit card or a wallet full of plastics. The point is, a lost or stolen credit card may become the reason for serious financial problems.

Much to cardholders' delight, credit cards come with a thick bunch of various credit benefits. One of them is zero liability coverage. It means that when your card is lost or stolen, you are liable only for $50. It's all well and good but it's still really crucial to know what to do when your credit card is lost or stolen.

It really pays when you do the right thing. Take credit cards for instance, having a clean credit profile really does help. Those who managed to maintain a squeaky clean credit report during the recession can now jump with joy, as they will get some of the best deals from credit card issuers.
