✅In this video i tell you what i think the top 5 BEST UK credit cards are for Beginners. I also tell you what a credit card is and how they work and all about the fees you might incur and how to avoid them.
What is a credit card? – 00:21 – 02:36
A credit card is very similar to a debit card just not linked to a bank account. The money doesn’t automatically come out of your account you have to ‘pay off’ the credit card. However, you can set up a direct debit to do this automatically each month. Make sure to always pay off your card on time so that you don’t incur interest.
Credit score – 02:36 – 03:55
A credit score is a score out of 999 which determines how reliable you are at spending money. When you start you get given a score of around 450, with a credit score less than 500 you will find it difficult to get loans such as car finance or mortgages and the interest rate will be much higher. The best tip is to pay your credit card on time each month to increase your score.
What are the advantages of getting a credit card? – 03:55 – 05:09
A credit card can be used to ‘time’ your spending, if you have an urgent commitment such as car insurance/car repair/holiday, but don’t currently have the money until pay-day, you can pay this with your credit card and then pay it off after pay day. This way, you don’t have to wait weeks to repair your car.
Credit cards are also covered under the Consumer Credit Act which protects you from frauds and scams up to £30,000.
Disadvantages to credit cards – 05:09 – 05:38
Credit cards with a high credit score such as £10,000+ can be very tempting to splurge on something that you cant afford. This can get you in a sticky situation that is very difficult to dig yourself out of the debt.
