Why Bother Making a Credit Card Budget

Spending In A Conscientious Way

Credit cards provide a sense of freedom to spend on what you aspire to buy. For example, buying the latest electronic items or even household furniture becomes more convenient because you can easily purchase them on EMIs from Amazon or Flipkart. However, being mindful of your monthly budget is important to avoid overspending.

Prioritising What Truly Matters

When data is transforming every aspect of our lives, why leave out credit card spending? A credit card budget is not merely about controlling your spending but also having better visibility into your spending needs. For example, if you must spend on cabs every month, there is no way you can control it, but having visibility can help you account for other expenses such as dining or entertainment, for which you may have a choice.

If you are among those who like to be in charge of their credit card expenses, OneCard’s Spends Planner can be the perfect choice for you.
