Credit: What’s it Good For?

Credit and credit cards are not bad things in themselves. Of course, when used incorrectly, these things can lead to people getting in all kinds of financial trouble. That’s why you need to know what they’re good for and when you should use them. That way, you’ll find yourself in a financial tangle less often, which has to be a good thing for you and your family. So, read on to learn more about the instances when credit becomes extremely useful indeed.

Weekly Food Shopping

The weekly food shopping can be a budgeting nightmare, and that’s the main reason why it’s a good idea to make use of your credit card in these situations. You can delay the payment because it’s on your credit card. Many people organise their monthly budgets this way, and it can genuinely make things a lot easier for you. You can learn more about budgeting and credit cards at

Christmas Gift Shopping

As we all know, shopping for Christmas gifts is never very easy, and it can be incredibly expensive. It’s a good idea to use your credit card when moving through this big-spending period. That’s because credit cards allow you to spread the burden nicely, and you don’t have to pay it all off right now. When you’re buying a huge number of gifts, that can be a real saviour.


One-Off Buys

If you don’t have enough money in your debit account, you can use a credit card to pay for large one-off purchases. This will help you to make the purchase even if you don’t have the money right now. As long as you will be able to access it later, you will be fine and the costs will be covered. Compare the options using; it’s best if you can find a 0% card. That will allow you to spread the cost without being hit by interest penalties.

Holiday Payments

Holiday costs, flights and hotel bills can often be pretty big. If you’re paying for all these things in advance, it makes sense to use your credit card. That’s because all these things can be subject to cancellation. And you’ll be far more likely to get your money back if anything is cancelled if you used your credit card to pay for it all. THere are far better protections in place when you use a credit card.

When You Need to Start Building Your Credit Score

Credit can be helpful if you need to borrow from a lender in the future. They will always look at your credit score to see whether or not you’re the kind of person they can safely lend money to. If you don't have a good credit score, you might find yourself getting rejected by banks and lenders. It’s possible to build up good credit by using your credit card to make purchases. But this will only produce the right outcomes if you make the payments on time.

All of these examples show you when credit can be used to your advantage. Keep what you’ve learned in mind going forward.
