    • How do you choose between a credit card and personal loan?

      To decide on the best financing option, it’s ideal to analyses the purpose for which you would need it. Asking yourself these question can help you decide on which one you want to use.

        • What is the amount that you need? If it is a big amount, it could exceed your credit limit and you would have to consider a personal loan. At the same time, if the amount is small, maybe you could use your credit card instead.

        • How long will you take to pay it back? Small amounts that you can pay back in a month or two can be taken care of by a credit card but if it’s a big amount, and you will take longer to pay it back, a personal loan could be more suited to the purpose.

        • What is the interest rate? Credit cards come with higher interest rates than personal loans, so if you want to keep your expenses down, you should consider a personal loan over a credit card purchase.

    • Means you can use to pay for big-ticket purchases

      Everyone wishes to make big-ticket purchases. Several electronic gadgets including laptops, home appliances, furniture and high-end smartphones usually cost more than the average. The question of how to effectively pay for these big ticket purchases is often posed. Here are some tips to effectively pay for big-ticket purchases while not feeling too burdened on the cost of the purchase.

      Credit card instalment plans: Several banks offer credit cards that come with the 0% instalment plan feature. Under these plans, no interest is charged on the purchase and the entire cost of the product or service purchased, can be converted into easy monthly repayment options. In the recent past, credit card instalment plans have become quite popular in helping customers make big-ticket purchases.

      A personal loan: While a personal loan for a big-ticket purchase isn’t too recommended, they do work well, as personal loans come with lower annual interests than credit cards. Moreover, most banks give you the option of pre-closing your personal loan, making a personal loan quite a good option to pay for big-ticket purchases.

      Instalment plans offered by the merchant: In many cases, the merchant offers instalment plans to help customers pay for big-ticket purchases. Enquiring about available plans will help deal with these purchases effectively.

      Balance transfers: Balance transfers are another effective way to cope with the financial impact after making a big-ticket purchase. Many banks that offer the balance transfer facility allow for a 6-month or 12-month interest free repayment period.
