Nearly 20% of us chose to cover the cost of Christmas with our credit card, but did you know credit cards are now one of the most expensive forms of debt? Credit cards rates are up again, with many people paying the highest interest rates since 1995. With variable interest rates too, many people are actually paying much more!
