Do I really need a credit card?

Ah the age-old question. Well it completely depends on your financial situation. If you know you'll be able to pay back the balance in full and on time, then credit cards can be a great way to receive perks and bonuses with your purchases.

Say you're already considering a fantastic new Black Friday TV deal, or are looking to purchase the new iPhone 11, a credit card could be the way to go.

However, if you're using a credit card as a way into making a purchase that is out of your budget and you're focusing more on the now rather than the later- then a credit card is not a good idea. They may have fantastic rewards, but they also come with serious consequences if you don't pay back your balance in full and on time - these include bad credit and/or mounting yourself in debt. We've considered all this in more detail in our consideration of whether getting a credit card is right for you.
