Cards, also known as Check Cards, is a special form
of cards that look to the merchant just like a
Credit Card, with the VISA
logo on them. However, this card is actually an ATM
card that allows you to withdraw money from ATMs
(directly from your checking account) without
incurring interest. Also, the purchases made are
debited (thus the name) from your account instantly.
There fore there is no monthly statement, no
seems like a much better alternative to normal
Credit Cards, offering all its services without the
risk of interest.
there are a few points to consider:
- The Debit
Card does not offer any consumer protection nor
extended warranty that the normal credit cards
maybe a small monthly service charge involved
when you use the card (e.g. 1.5$ per month for
large banks in the USA, only in months that you
use the card in). Note that almost all cards in
the USA have no annual fee, unlike other parts
of the world (e.g. Middle East).
the above, the debit card is a very convenient way
of avoiding the drawbacks of credit cards.
