Have a disciplined approach to your credit behaviour. It is critical that you use your credit card smartly and responsibly. Since credit cards offer a significant interest-free period, there may be a tendency to overspend in multiple categories while shopping from partnered merchants. If you spend more than you can repay and cannot pay your credit card bill timely, you will incur hefty interest charges ranging from 28 to 49 percent p.a. along with late payment fees.
Paisabazaar has shortlisted the credit cards based on the spending pattern of women across categories like apparel, grocery, dining, movies, travel, etc. All credit card information is sourced and updated as of February 28, 2023.
