Having good credit can help you finance a new vehicle, purchase a home, take out a loan or even receive a new credit card. However, credit cards have different interest rates that are based on your credit rating, which determines if you are a credit risk. Not knowing how to manage credit cards correctly can increase your interest rate and cause greater debt.

Benefits of Credit Cards
When used correctly, credit cards can provide you with many benefits. The right credit cards can help you build your credit history, allowing you to:
- Qualify for lower rates on auto loans and mortgages
- Reduce your insurance premiums, since many insurers use credit information to determine their prices
- Get a decent apartment; many landlords check credit scores
