Some employees recently received money back after claims that they had been paid less than what they should have been paid. The average payout for these workers was approximately £300.
For those of us who don’t have such a cheque waiting for us there is always the credit card, if say we could do with a little cash to go shopping with. Here’s how to avoid going overboard when shopping with your credit card.
If you aren’t in a position to wait for the amount to be saved, or better, if you will be able to pay off the credit card within thirty days then your purchase should not negatively impact your finances.
If you’re just shopping for something extra, try waiting two to three days before making the actual purchase. You might find you don’t really want that item you saw at the store or online.
Large amounts should really only be used for emergencies. Ask yourself if there will be a problem if you make the purchase, and your heater goes out next month.
