Large purchase credit cards
A large purchase credit card could help spread the cost of an expensive purchase, which might help make it a more manageable way to pay.
Features of large purchase credit cards
- Usually come with an introductory offer on purchases.
- Could be a useful way of funding planned bigger items or projects.
- Better purchase protection than you get with a debit card.
What happens after the introductory offer ends?
Your interest will go to the standard rate for your credit card. This might be higher, unless you clear your balance in full before the introductory offer ends. Bear in mind, you’ll lose your introductory rate if you don’t make your minimum payment each month and stay within your credit limit.
Things to look out for
- The interest rate (APR) charged. This factors in interest and any fees automatically charged to your account, so is useful for comparing overall costs of credit cards.
- How long the introductory offer period is.
- Only borrow what you can afford to pay back each month.
- Make sure the credit card limit suits your needs.
- Try to pay back what you’ve spent in full each month, so you don’t have to pay interest on what you’ve borrowed.
