But when you use a credit card with a high interest rate, you actually drive up the price of each purchase.

Key considerations before you apply for a credit card

How does a credit card work?

A credit card allows you to borrow money from a lender. When you apply for a credit card, you agree to pay the funds back under certain terms. These terms include your credit limit, or the set amount you are able to borrow, your annual percentage rate (APR), and other fees. When you use a credit card to purchase something, you’ll need to make a regular minimum payment on the account. This minimum payment will be set by your financial institution and is calculated by a percentage of your overall balance. When possible, you should try to pay off your balance in full each month to avoid paying interest and fees.

What is credit card interest?

Credit card interest is the amount a lender charges the cardholder to make purchases with the card. Typically, this interest is set at an annual rate known as the annual percentage rate (APR). Credit card issuers use APR to determine the amount of interest the cardholder is charged each day for purchases and the overall unpaid balance on the card. A low-interest rate credit card may save you money when financing big purchases or paying down debt.

What are the benefits of using a low-interest rate credit card?

A credit card can help build your credit score. When you manage your card responsibly by keeping the balance low and making regular payments, you can improve your credit score. Credit cards also allow you to delay making payments until a later date and break up larger sum purchases into smaller payments (with interest) over time. Some credit cards, like the Platinum Mastercard®, even allow you to withdraw cash, also referred to as a cash advance. While this can be helpful when you don't have money on hand, keep in mind there may be additional fees associated with this withdrawal. There are many benefits of using a credit card, there are also quite a few myths surrounding credit usage.
