Credit cards are a financial tool that allows you to make purchases today and pay for them in the future. Each card has a cut-off date, payment deadline and a credit amount that are unique.

There are moments in life when abundance knocks at your door and so too, there are times when you can see yourself a little more forced. In abundance you will tend to accept many financial products that become an escape valve in difficult times.
You should avoid falling into this and it is better that you handle with few products, but in the same bank, because it is easier for your bank to increase the limit of your credit card by your good handling and consumption level, to take a little from here and there and you should here and there. Your exposure to credit increases and you are very likely to get over debt.
