Credit Card Bills

[March 14, 2008]

Like it or not, there can be various unforeseen situations in our life. There are a great number of people who cannot control their budgets and money slips through their fingers like sand. It's not surprise that they cannot scrape up enough money to pay all the bills in due time. Credit issuers have no sympathy to these customers, all the more so, they set extremely strict credit rules and you should be a huge fan of iron discipline to find these credit rules fair. However, there are people who manage to make the most of their credit cards. Interestingly, some of these diligent cardholders treat credit cards like an alternative method of payment rather than primary.

Credit Building Methods

[March 07, 2008]

Financial wealth in the US is closely tied with your credit rating. Once you have a good credit score, you may expect better terms on your loans. In other words, your credit rating may save you thousands of dollars when it comes to buying a car or home. Do you happen to know that the difference in a few score points may cost you dear? Lenders are extremely cautious about borrowers whose credit rating is low. How can you build a solid credit rating?

Actually, there are many ways of increasing your credit score. And you can find lots of them on various web sites. But as a rule, they are all similar. The Fair Isaac Company has created something new for cardholders who would like to establish their scores with non-traditional methods.

Credit Card Penalties

[February 29, 2008]

The proverb goes, better late than never. However, there are situations when this principle doesn't work. If you are an experienced cardholder, you are sure to know this. Time is money, when it comes to credit card payments, and lenders do not really care about your punctuality, they want to receive more money. That's why they set late fees and default interest rates. Roughly speaking, creditors want us to be late with our payments. And sometimes, we become victims of these strict time frames. The most irritating thing is that you can damage your credit rating in mere seconds, even though it took years to establish it. Read on for more details about the harsh consequences of late payments and learn how you can avoid them.

Credit Card Trial

[February 22, 2008]

The UK internet bank, Egg, will probably face an investigation into the cancellation of more that 160,000 credit cards, which will be launched by the Office of Fair Trading, UK. An inquiry wouldn't be probably launched but for the flood of complaints from customers who had their accounts cancelled regardless of their good credit standing and long history with the bank.

About seven per cent of Egg's two million customers received letters that warned them their accounts would be cancelled and indicated no sound reason for the decision. Naturally enough, the act got customers worried that it would hurt their credit files and would bar them from profitable credit card deals later on.

College Rewards Credit Cards

[February 15, 2008]

Rewards plastics enable us to make use of our spendings. That's really great to make the most of your card and save a lot on purchases you make every day. Variety is the mother of enjoyment and rewards credit cards can serve a good example to this statement.

The cardholders of rewards plastics may get free airline tickets, free stays at hotels, discounts and other perks, not to mention exceptional rewards for adult dreamers who still want their most wished-for dreams come true. However, there are a lot of consumers who are highly concerned about their children' education. And credit issuers have something to offer for this category of credit users, i.e. so-called college fund rewards credit cards, plastics that contribute to a 529 plan.

Chase Bank recently announced the redesign of its Visa credit cards - allowing more space on the front for the Chase logo. This new design is in trial mode currently but Visa has pans to roll out its new design to other financial institutions in order to increase the branding and logo visibility of the individual issuing banks.

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.
