Credit cards are an extension of spending

Credit cards are an extension of spending

Our heroine budgeted for the groceries and paid the power bill, but when a good deal turns up, she just can’t turn away.

She knows she cannot afford the things she buys on impulse, but, as if under a curse, she can’t resist the sale. She thinks that’s what credit cards are for, right? She’s confident they will carry her over until she can pay off the bill… which should be any day now.

You don’t have to be Cassandra the Prophet to see how this will end.

About Our Ratings ×

Our editors rate credit cards objectively based on the features the credit card offers consumers, the fees and interest rates, and how a credit card compares with other cards in its category. Ratings vary by category, and the same card may receive a certain number of stars in one category and a higher or lower number in another.

The ratings are the expert opinion of our editors, and not influenced by any remuneration this site may receive from card issuers.

Advertisers in our database are highlighted, and advertisements include an option to apply using links on our site. CardRatings.com may be compensated by companies mentioned on the site when a user's application is accepted or approved by such companies.
