Be Wary of “Great” Credit Card Offers This Season

December 8th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

 West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is urging consumers to exercise caution when evaluating credit card offers this holiday season.  There is always an uptick in credit card offers with the holidays. While it may be tempting to take advantage of the “buy now, pay later” option, consumers should verify the credit card offer is legitimate. Deferred interest promotions may promise zero-percent interest through December 2024, but failure to pay off the entire balance by the promotion period’s end could stick the consumer with an interest charge dating back to the item’s original purchase date.
