More Credit Card Extra Charges

July 6th, 2010

Here is a list of some other extra charges and how to deal with them:

-Often you might encounter the over limit fee. If you spend more than your credit card company allows this is going to incur an over the limit fee. The best way to avoid this is to keep an accurate record of your credit card expenses.
-The monthly service or minimum finance fee is another type of fee. Sometimes banks that claim that there are no annual fees associated with credit cards charge monthly fees. Yes, I know, pretty deceptive. The best way to deal with such a situation is to stay informed and read about the subject.
-A cash advance is often very convenient. However, you should be prepared that there might be extra charges related to it, such as 3% charged when you borrow money. Before you decide to take advantage out of the cash advance, make sure you know how much it will cost you.
-Another type of fee is a balance transfer fee. Transferring a balance from one card to another might invoke this fee. Just make sure that the overall benefit of the transfer is worth the fee, as sometimes it is better not to transfer.

Knowing about different types of fees might save you a lot of money.
