National Credit Federation President Dave Fulk Says Store Credit Cards May Cost You More Than They Save
Tampa, FL — Aug 13, 2015 — Dave Fulk, president of National Credit Federation, published a new blog post entitled “Tempted By a Store Credit Card? Read This First.” In the post, he discusses the dangers of store credit cards, which in addition to charging high interest rates with no grace period, can actually harm credit scores by reducing the average lifespan of credit lines and making unnecessary queries into credit history.
Fulk says, “Every time you open up a new credit card, you add complexity to your life and make your finances more vulnerable to fraud. By sticking with a single credit card—one with a decent APR and rewards of its own—you make it safer and easier to manage your finances and pay your bills on time. Rather than a store credit card, ask about a loyalty card—many companies offer discounts and rewards for purchases without any financial involvement on your part.”
Dave Fulk, NACSO, CCRA, is the president of National Credit Federation and a national speaker on finance and credit. He has over 10 years of experience in the financial industry, specializing in finance, mortgages, and credit.
