You probably receive dozens of solicitations in the mail every month for credit cards. There are all kinds of cards. There are credit cards with nice pictures on them, ones that require full payment every month, and ones that lend you money at a low interest rate for a few months but switch to a higher rate after you've used the card for a while. There also are credit cards that reward you with airline frequent flyer miles or very small amounts of cash back at the end of the year.
Credit cards are a necessity in today's economy. You can't stay in a hotel or rent a car without a credit card. And try to buy something over the Internet without a credit card. It's nearly impossible. Plus credit cards offer a lot of convenience when traveling. No longer do travelers need travelers' checks, or excessive sums of cash.
With all the aggressive marketing by big, national credit card companies, however, some people get caught up in a dangerous trap. Because of the ease of obtaining and using credit cards, they buy frivolously. Cards get maxed-out and then even the minimum payment seems unmanageable. Things can really get bad for people who obtain new credit cards in order to pay off debt on old ones.
Many of the big credit card companies are to blame for encouraging people to get themselves into trouble. Many do a poor job of explaining exactly how their card works. Consider the example of a company that offers a credit card that charges a low introductory rate of interest, and then ups the rate after a few months. Often when a customer of this kind of card makes a payment, the money is first applied to the portion of debt subject to the lower rate of interest. This means the portion of debt subject to the higher rate of interest continues to pile up. Worse, if a payment is a day late, the rate can more than double.
It can be especially frustrating for a customer to get an answer from some of the big credit card companies. Calling the toll-free number generally results in reaching an automated system that doesn't always have the answers needed.
The best answer for most people is to obtain a credit card from a local bank – like Security First Bank. Why bother with the big, impersonal credit card companies, when Security First Bank offers a better product without any of the hassle? We won't mislead you about how interest is charged or applied to your account. If you have a question, you can always reach a live person when you call us. Better yet, you can actually come into the bank and talk to a personal banker. If you find yourself having debt problems, we can help you work through them. We won't try to sell you another product that only makes your situation worse.
Credit cards are a valuable tool in today's world. Match that up with your local community bank – Security First Bank - and you have a powerful combination working for you.
