When It's a Good Idea to Pull out Your Credit Card to Make a Payment

With so many people falling into the credit card debt hole, many individuals have decided to severely limit their credit card purchases. There are times, however, when using your credit card makes a lot of sense. Here are some of the products or services that you may want to put on your card to take advantage of added benefits.

Electronics and appliances

Some credit cards offer extended automatic coverage and warranties for electronic and appliance purchases. In some cases you may even be protected against theft and loss and some cards provide price protection.

Concert tickets

Many card companies work with venues and offer incentives such as discounts, VIP perks and special admission and pre-sale ticket purchases. You may end up with some awesome bonuses that will make your concert experience one that you'll always remember.

Tax-deductable items

If you make a mental note to yourself to make all of your tax-deductable purchases with your credit card, you'll be all set at tax time. If you own your own business you may just want to get a designated card that you can use for tax deductable items only. It's an easy way to keep the paperwork organized.

Accommodations

While most hotels require a credit card for a booking anyway, you may get free perks by using the card. Sometimes the credit card offers rewards for free upgrades and hotel stays.

Travel

When you book a flight with your card you may be offered insurance benefits such as life insurance and cancellation protection. Some card companies also provide free travel insurance in foreign countries.

Online purchases

Credit cards offer fraud protection for purchases. If you aren’t happy with something that you have bought online you may find recourse through your card company.
