Credit Card:

Often described as a small simple plastic card with a magnetic stripe that consists of a machine readable code, a credit card in UAE either VISA or MASTERCARD is a powerful financial tool issued by a banks in UAE or financial institution that enables the holder to benefit from deals in Dubai through the purchase of goods and services on credit and pay for them later whilst getting Dubai offers,rewards and perks that helps the holder to save money and make life easier and at the same time providing convenience for the credit card holder. In other words a credit card is mainly used as a short term financing solution.

Unlike a charge credit card which requires payment in full each month of the outstanding amount charged to the card, a credit card in UAE allows the holder to make equated monthly installments (EMI) on the outstanding amount similar to the results of the loan calculator,thus this makes it more attractive than a charge card.Credit cards in UAE allows the holder to use it anywhere in the world whether in shops or online which makes it a reliable form of payment in this modern era. Credit cards are the most popular form of payment in fast moving economies such as Dubai and the the whole country at large United Arab Emirates.

Unlike using cash or other forms of payment, a credit card gives you the financial freedom to better manage and pay for any type of bills or expenses that you might have incurred on more flexible terms also known as equated monthly installments which are calculated by the emi calculator, without the hassle of looking for a loan and going through the loan application process whilst you just need a short term financing solution.

A credit card is mainly designed as a personal banking tool that is used to pay for items in shops, online, balance transfers and also making cash withdrawals which are also known as cash advances and it should also be noted that if used wisely and within the designated credit limits, a credit card can be very useful in building good credit history or credit score.

How Credit cards work:

After applying and obtaining your Credit card, you are given a line of credit or a credit limit. A credit limit is the maximum amount of money that the holder is allowed to borrow without penalty charges. There are many factors that are taken into consideration when determining someone’s credit limit such as income level, credit score and the type of company that the prospective holder of the card is working for whether it is a listed or unlisted company with that particular bank that will issue the credit card.

Besides purchasing goods and services you can also use a credit card for balance transfers and cash advances (Cash withdrawals).
