Using Credit Cards Limits For Quick Loans

Dec 23, 2007
Many people will seek out loans to pay for Christmas gifts or to buy a variety of items throughout the year. Instead of financing the items with a personal loan from a lending institution, some people prefer to obtain credit cards that are equipped with a generous credit limit. The terms for repaying the loan will vary by Credit Card Company but many provide credit card limits provide 6 months of interest free cash that can be spent anyway a person wants.

Using credit limits for petty cash purchases can be risky and costly. Most people are not able to track when credit card payments are due and find that when they exceed the due date by one day, they are placing their credit rating in jeopardy. The interest rate can go from zero to 29.5 overnight because the fine print in the credit card agreement gives them the right to make that increase. The zero interest rate is good for six months only if all the terms of the credit card agreement are complied with. The floating loans will take a deep dive that some people cannot recover from.

If handled responsibly, a quick loan using cash from a credit card limit can help avoid fees, and if the credit card offers cash back on all purchases, many people find that they are able to make money by using the credit limits to make their home mortgage payments. Some people will save cash when they shop for clothing and household appliances through an online point redemption center. Every dollar spent from the credit card credit limit can earn points that can be redeemed for cash, or other household items and gift cards to reduce restaurant bills.

People with bad credit histories apply for credit cards to reestablish a good payment history. The credit limits are generally issued with a credit limit of $300 but some offer credit up to $1000. This type of credit limit can be used to pay off old debts and get home finances back on track. With a 6-month low interest rate in the agreement for the credit card, it will give the homeowner time to get debts organized to a more manageable level.

The monthly payments for credit cards issued to people with bad credit ratings will be lower than expected. Most credit card payments can be orchestrated using the automatic payment systems, and can be paid off earlier if the person is committed to making more than the minimum monthly payment listed. With consistent on-time payments, a person will build a solid credit history that will earn them an increase on their credit rating. Some people will raise the credit limit to an amount large enough to use as a down payment on a new automobile.

The interest rates for credit cards are much lower than title loans or payday loans. People will consider the credit card limits as a way to get the things that they want in life in a quicker turnaround period than if they had saved up the money over time. The monthly payments are merely a means to an end and while they are waiting for the credit card balance to return to zero, they feel that they can enjoy the things that they purchased with the credit card monies in the meantime.
