Finance and Credit Cards… Comparisons

Finance, money, bills, stress, coping, etc…..  We all have to face them every bloody month the bills, stress and worry, Work too much, paid to little, no pay rise in eons, yet we have to make ends meet……

No matter who is the breadwinner is and I can tell you in the Brooks household we both pull our weight, we both work damn bloody hard to make sure the bills are paid, food is on the table and the kids are looked after. Thats not to say we have been through the ringer a few times. and If not for our family we would have come a cropper a few times, however we are coming out the other side (just) and things may start to look a little different. No matter we still need to keep an eye on the finance side of things so I thought I would start on here by giving some information on Credit Cards and the differing rates that are available at the moment.

As you can see from the table below there are many to choose from so choose wisely, make sure you get the best deal for you and your circumstance.  The below tabel of information is from the site www.consumerhelp.ie –
