Why You Should Pay More Than the Minimum Balance on Your Credit Card


Nov 02, 2023

Why You Should Pay More Than the Minimum Balance on Your Credit Card

Credit cards also allow you to pay off your balance over time while still using your card. In other words, you can take on short-term debt, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing if you’re able to pay that debt off. 

*Annual Percentage Yields (APYs) current as of 10/30/23 and are subject to change without notice. Minimum balance of $1,000 required. Withdrawals of principal are subject to early withdrawal penalties. The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield are fixed and will be in effect for the initial term of the account.  At the end of term this will auto-renew to a 12-month share certificate at the prevailing rate. Cannot be combined with member relationship pricing. Membership eligibility is required. Insured by the NCUA.
