Credit card & reward points

Don’t avail a credit card just for reward points. If you use the credit card to make purchases and pay back in time, then you can enjoy reward points and cashbacks. You could get exclusive concierge service for gift delivery, customised holiday packages, travel, movies and hotel reservations. Banks offer cashbacks on utility bills (electricity/water), grocery purchases if you use credit cards. Use it to your advantage.

Always pay in full before the due date

Credit cards offer a grace period to make payments. This is an interest-free period to repay dues. Banks grant a grace period of 30-60 days. “Make sure not to carry a balance from the previous billing cycle, or you will not get the benefit of the grace period. This is like a short-term loan without interest if you can pay outstanding dues within credit card bill payment date,” said Sudheer.

EMI facility of a credit card

If you are making a big ticket purchase (say a refrigerator or a washing machine), and don’t want to liquidate savings and investments, use the credit card to pay for the purchase in EMIs. This generally works out to be cheaper than a personal loan. Do not forget to negotiate the processing fee and other charges. However, the credit limit stands blocked to the extent of the sum outstanding of the loan.

Choose cash backs/discounts/offers wisely

Many credit cards have tempting offers and you must choose credit cards with long-term benefits that work well with normal spending. Choose a credit card which offers discounts on clothes, electronic gadgets and restaurants as these are frequent purchases. A discount must be direct and benefit you. Choose a credit card which matches your lifestyle and spending habits and gives the maximum discount.

Build your credit score

There are times individuals have defaulted on their loans in the past. In such cases the credit reports have negative remarks. Banks are not keen to extend loans to such individuals. If you opt for a ‘secured credit card’, then you can overcome this situation.

Sudheer said that a secured credit card is secured against a fixed deposit from a bank. Credit limit could be 80-90% of the FD amount offered as collateral. The bank charges a lower interest as they can liquidate the FD and accrued interest in case of a default. If you repay your credit card balance on time, then you build your repayment history and thereby improve your credit history.

A good credit score means you can negotiate with your lenders for a waiver of processing charges and other fees. It allows you to access cheaper credit.
