Advantages and Disadvantages of Credit cards

The credit card is an automatic advance card, so when you use it, you can receive the products you've purchased before you've paid for them. Credit cards are a popular source of credit for restaurants, motels, mail orders, online shopping, gas stations, grocery stores, dental and medical treatment, church bazaars, and other things advertised via telephone and television. There are numerous advantages and downsides to using credit cards, but their misuse can have severe and terrible consequences.

Advantages of Credit Card

Credit cards minimize the need to carry substantial cash amounts.

If you are away from home without cash, you can frequently obtain a cash advance or purchase traveler's checks with a credit card.

Places that are wary of personal checks typically accept credit cards.

Credit cards serve as a short-term loan if you find a great deal but lack the cash or available balance in your bank account to pay for it.

If you relocate to a new community, credit cards provide you with purchasing power until you establish yourself as a good risk.

If you charge $50 or more for an item or service in Colorado (or within 100 miles of your residence) and later learn it doesn't operate or has other issues, you can withhold payment from the credit card company if you have attempted to remedy the issue with the merchant.

When traveling abroad, using your credit card for purchases and your ATM card to withdraw cash typically yields the most advantageous exchange rates. Check with your card issuers about any applicable surcharges before your departure. A two-to-three percent surcharge could negate this benefit.

Credit cards can assist in organizing tax-related receipts.

Accounting is reduced to a single monthly charge instead of checks.

Disadvantages of Credit Card

When the credit card gets due, and you do not pay it back, it becomes a loan.

Consumers can develop the habit of extending their income with credit cards.

Even if a loan from a credit union, bank, or other financial institution might offer the funds at a cheaper interest rate, credit cards are easier to use than loans.
