4 Myths about Credit Cards

Throughout the years it was frowned upon to use a credit card, and even our parents and grandparents still may not be using them, even though they help build up credit.  Before you avoid signing up for a credit offer that you may have received, there are actually myths about credit cards that are just not true.

It is a Mistake to Use Credit Cards

Sure using a credit card puts you into debt, but it does not have to be bad after all.  There used to be a negative connotation that using a credit card means that you do not have the money to purchase the item, and while that may be true to shopaholics, you actually can earn money back with rewards that can add up to hundreds of dollars per year.  Also, you can be more at ease if you fall victim to fraud and can easily dispute, without having an empty bank account, waiting for the charges to be reversed.

Your Card with a Chip is Safer

The point of the new chip cards is to shift liability from the card company to the actual store, being responsible for any extra charges and fees, so stores are shifting over to the new readers, but if you are not present for a purchase, such as online, then it does not matter.  Whether you have a chip card or not, it still requires you to enter in card information, so there is no saving versus a non-chip card.

Can Charge up Your Card as Long as You Pay it off

Maxing out your available credit can actually hurt your credit score, even if you pay the entire balance off the next statement date.  Depending on the timing of the reporting to the credit agency it could show you as being maxed out, and although you know you pay it off, they may see it as spending more than you can afford. You need to understand how available credit and credit inquiries can affect your overall score so that you are able to manage it better.

Interest and Due Dates are set in Stone

It comes a point when you have been paying responsible; on time, and not carrying over a balance, but suppose you do carry over, you feel the 16.99% APR is ridiculous.  Well it is.  Call and renegotiate your interest rate or might as well go to a company that will be lower.  With the due date, if you feel a better payment date falls in line with your paycheck schedule, you can request a new due date with no negative impact.


Get Rid of the Cable Costs With These Streaming Upgrades



Paying for cable is like opting to receive paper statements from your credit card company. You just don’t do it anymore. There are a number of ways for you to watch your favorite shows online that don’t involve high monthly cable bill statements.

Online streaming services give you access to your favorite shows at your fingertips. You may want to upgrade your phone to a bigger screen size like the iPhone 6 because you will be using it to watch shows anywhere in your house and on the go. You are no longer tied to the living room to watch your shows. You have free range of motion to take Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu with you to the gym, the store or your next road trip.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the options, consider the following popular sites, their estimated membership cost and the benefits of using their services.


Netflix is currently the largest streaming network in the United States. It is like a new best friend. It holds your place right where you left off and is waiting for you when you get home. Does cable do that for you? It has a wide variety of TV shows and movies to choose from, including original programming. Netflix’s content is not as up to date as some other services, however, so you may want to use it in addition to other streaming platforms. Membership is typically about $14 per month.

Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime offers more benefits than just streaming movies and television shows. You also get free two-day shipping, access to the latest music, free e-books and photo storage. Plus, as a streaming network, you can send your favorite shows and movies to your friends. If you watched a new documentary that you want to share with your mom, you can copy the link, paste it into a text message and share it with her in a matter of minutes. Membership costs run about $100 a year, but you can receive a free account if you’re a hard working student.


HBO GO is a good alternative if you’re a cable lover that never watches anything but movies and a few favorite shows. With this option, you can stream “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” and “Game of Thrones.” With such popular shows, you can get your friends together for a viewing party or maintain relationships with friends that live faraway. Create games or place bets on who will be murdered next on “Game of Thrones” or debate the controversial issues John Oliver covers on his show. Membership is only $10 per month and can be canceled at anytime.


There is both a free and paid version of Hulu. If you don’t mind watching cable shows a week after they air or are looking for re-runs and early ’90s movies, the free version will suit you just fine. For $15 a month, you gain access to a wide collection of new and old television shows and movie offerings.


Pay on the Go: How Mobile Payments Evolved in the Last Decade

Back when Steve Jobs announced the iPhone, most people only saw a smarter, better phone, with a bunch of features they didn’t know what to do with. But in time the various industries discovered the potential of this pocket-sized computer, rolling out new services, new ways to use it. Among them, an ever-growing service that allows users to use their phones as payment devices, much like virtual credit cards.

Paying online was never this easy

There are several ways in which you can transfer money over the internet, from the traditional remittance to a series of electronic methods. Some of them are listed at

, but there are many others – some available worldwide, others for residents of certain countries only. But this was not always the case. For years, online money transfer was a service offered by a single company, a groundbreaker on the market – PayPal. The next years saw a rapid development of online payments, with new operators emerging, and their services becoming more widespread and secure. But due to the low penetration of mobile internet connections, these services were most of the times restricted to the land-based internet – and desktop devices.

Mobile payments in the new century

Although mobile payment systems were introduced in the late 1990s, they didn’t start to grow in a meaningful manner until the early 2000s. Although more than 90 million people purchased various products and services using their mobile phones by 2003, many markets were tardy in adopting this new way of money transfer. Some of the options introduced in these times are still available today – like the one when you send a text message to a certain number to pay for a product or service, which will appear on your phone bill at the end of the month. But with the emergence of smartphones, mobile payments have become more seamless and handy than ever.

Using your smartphone as a credit card

The introduction of services like Apple Pay, mobile payments have taken an evolutionary step. Users don’t need to have their credit cards on them anymore – they only need their smartphone. Apple Pay and its likes store the users’ credit card information in a safe virtual wallet on the device. Payments are made using technologies like BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) or NFC (Near Field Communication). Users don’t need to swipe their credit cards anymore – they can simply hold it close to the merchant’s POS, enter a PIN code, and voilá – their payment has been done.

Mobile payments are becoming increasingly popular among smartphone users. According to an estimate, up to 90% of smartphone users will have made a payment using their device by 2020. And the value of such transactions is estimated to exceed $60 billion by next year.

The Benefits of Compatibility: Choosing a Trading Platform that Suits you

While the UK may have voted by a narrow majority to leave the EU, this prospect arguably appears to be further away than ever before. With departing Prime Minister David Cameron refusing to pull the trigger on Brexit and his potential replacements also unwilling to make such a commitment, it is unclear whether Britain’s extraction from European Union will ever come to pass.

Although the fulfilment of Brexit could ultimately damage the British economy and reduce its GDP, the uncertainty surrounding its implementation is even more debilitating. This is certainly having an impact on traders, with the value of sterling, shares and property likely to fall below 2015 peaks in the near-term.

Choosing a Trading Platform to suit you: The Key Considerations

To help thrive in such a climate, investors will need to choose asset classes and trading platforms that suit their needs. The latter point is particularly important, so here are the key considerations when choosing a compatible option: –

1. Does your Platform include Multiple Asset Classes?

On this note, the short-term economic uncertainty will hit some assets harder than others. Currency and equities are likely to suffer considerably, for example, but it is possible for experienced traders to alter their portfolios in real-time and capitalise on such turbulence. With this in mind, it is important to select a trading platform that affords you access to multiple products and derivatives, as this creates the type of diversity and flexibility that enables you to prosper in a strained economic climate.

2. Do you Need to hone your skills and Strategies?

While we would not recommend entering the financial marketplace as a novice in the current climate, those of you who are inexperienced and already financial invested will need to tread carefully in the coming months. If you feel as though you are in need of further education or keen on honing your existing skills within a simulated market environment, for example, it is wise to open a demo account and utilise this for a period of three to six months.

This will let you refine your strategy in a real-time but risk-free market, so look out for a trading platform that offers a demo account.

3. Do you Rely on Analytical Tools?

As a trader, your underlying philosophy and the assets that you invest in will determine how you execute decisions. It is likely that you will need a suite of analytical tools to help inform your decisions, however, so it is well worth selecting a platform that offers economic calendars, webinars and live market insight.

Different platforms offer this to varying degrees, so remain vigilant and seek out the platform that features the tools to suite you. Pay particular attention to your appetite for risk and your trading style, as this will help you to select a platform that helps you to get the most from your portfolio.
