Credit Cards 101

What is a credit card?

A credit card, like our Premium World® Mastercard®, is a line of credit in which you borrow funds from a lender with the understanding that you’ll pay these funds back under agreed upon terms. Credit limit, the annual percentage rate (APR), and other fees are included in these terms. You’ll need to make a regular, minimum payment to the account when you use your credit card to make purchases. The minimum payment is calculated by a percentage of your total balance and is set by your lender. When it’s possible, you should aim to pay your balance off each month to avoid paying interest and other fees. 

How does credit card interest work?

The amount a lender charges a cardholder when making purchases with their credit card is known as credit card interest. Interest is generally set at an annual rate which is also known as the annual percentage rate (APR). Lenders use APR to calculate the interest a cardholder is charged daily for purchases as well as the total balance.

How does a credit card affect my credit score?

Credit cards can greatly impact your credit score. By making regular payments on time each month, even the minimum amount due, your credit score will grow over time. While paying off your credit card every month is a great goal, it may not always be possible.  But it’s generally recommended to keep credit use under 30% of your total credit limit. So if you’re regularly carrying a high balance, not only may it make paying your card down more difficult, it could end up hurting your credit score.

1. Cardholders with a qualifying Absolute Checking® account will receive 2% cash back on all qualifying Premium World® card net purchases. A net purchase is the amount of a purchase, less any credits, returns, or adjustments. All other cardholders will receive 1.5% cash back on all net purchases. Cash advances or balance transfers do not qualify as purchases towards earning cash back. All offers may be extended, modified, or discontinued at any time. Rewards program is subject to change without notice.

2. The primary cardholder will earn a $150 reward after making $1,500 in qualifying purchases on the Premium World® card within the first 90 days from the account open date. Once the requirements have been met, the rewards will post to the account at the next cycle date. Offer may be extended, modified, or discontinued at any time. This offer applies only to new Clearview Premium World® account holders. Current Clearview credit card account holders, or previous Clearview credit card account holders within the last five years are not eligible for this offer.

A minimum credit line of $10,000 is required in order to qualify for the Premium World® card.
