You learn by experience and this week I learned a hard lesson about credit cards. I used a credit card for some entertainment expenses online and was surprised at the end of the month to see a cash advance charge and an interest charge for that advance that had been adding up all month.
I take responsibility for the letting this slip by me. I wouldn’t have had this charge I had been checking my credit card account online on a regular basis. If I would have seen it I would have paid it off immediately and not had an interest charge. I hate interest charges.
I have now made it part of my weekly plan to check my active credit cards for anomalies and charges.
