If you have a savings account, then chances are that you also have a credit card. In decades past, banks would carefully screen their clients before giving them a card, but nowadays, anyone with an account can get one. It’s become so proliferant that you can now choose which type of credit program you want.
For starters, most credit card programs now have a rewards system wherein every time you charge something on your card, you get points. If you earn enough points, you get the chance to redeem them for an item provided by your card provider. Usually, fewer points will earn you smaller household appliances while more points will be redeemable for vacation trips and the like.
A more worthwhile credit program would be the cash- back system. This is a new system which pays back the credit card user with actual cash. This is much more useful in many ways as you won’t be forced to accept a kitchen appliance you don’t need or get stuck with points you don’t want to use.
The cash- back program won’t pay out hundreds of dollars unfortunately, but it’s enough to purchase a few monthly necessities. If you save it up, then the amount can go back to paying down your credit card bill which is what the banks are probably after in the first place.
