What’s best for me?
|Works Best For||Source of Funds||Available Balance||INterest Charge||Credit Report|
|Debit Card||Someone who wants to make purchases conveniently, while still controlling spending and avoiding debt||Funds for Debit Card purchases come from your companion Checking Account||Your available balance on your Debit Card is the same as the available balance in your Checking account||There is no interest charge on a Debit Card, and nothing to pay back||Using a Debit Card does not impact your Credit Report|
|Credit Card||Someone who needs more funds than they currently have available and is able to pay back any used balances. It’s also handy to have a Credit Card available for handling emergencies||The company providing you the Credit Card gives you a set amount that you can spend, which must be paid back||Your available balance on your Credit Card is the remaining balance of any unused portion of the credit line granted to you||The company providing your Credit Card will charge you interest to use their funds, and you must pay back all used funds plus interest. Paying the balance in full each month can help you avoid paying interest and is a good way to manage your card||Using a Credit Card does affect your Credit Report, and can be a great way to build a solid credit history as long as payments are made on time|
