VISA MasterCard Credit Cards

VISA and MasterCard are by far the most widely accepted credit cards in the world. VISA is accepted at 30 million merchant locations worldwide and there are 1.7 billion VISA cards in circulation. MasterCard, on the other hand, is accepted by 28 million merchants and has issued 981 million cards. While international travelers should undoubtedly focus on cards on either the VISA or MasterCard network, those planning to do most of their spending domestically should consider American Express and Discover as well. This will enable you to find the best possible terms for your credit standing and financial needs.

    I use my Mastrercard as I use a debit card. Credit cards are a little more secure than using a debit card. I'm not interested in buying on credit because of the high interest rate. My card happens to be a secure card, and my credit score has gone up quite a lot, I always pay thru my bank before I get a bill.

    I use my Visa card literally every single day for various purchases. I use it on something as small as buying food at a to-go restaurant, or I may use it to buy textbooks at the college bookstore. The main reason I use my Visa card is because it is a great and simple way to build credit from scratch. I just pay off my balance at the end of the month by transferring money from my savings account against my Visa balance and it helps build credit. Also I prefer a card over cash any day. It's quicker and much less of a hassle.

    I use my Mastercard to make all of my every day purchases. It's so much more convenient than having to have cash, or write checks - not to mention I earn cash back so it's almost like I get "paid" to buy what I'm already buying. I also like that fact that I'm protected from fraud by paying with my credit card.

    I use my mastercard rather than cash every day. It is easier than racking up ATM fees to have cash, and it makes tracking my spending easier as well. I feel better using it when purchasing expensive items, or when renting a car or buying airline tickets because of the ability to dispute charges if something goes wrong. If you pay cash, you don't have that ability. And of course it makes purchasing online possible. I also like if I purchase something online and it doesn't arrive, I can always dispute the charge and they will refund me what I spent.

    I use my visa card everyday. I use it at the gas station, to buy stuff at the store, in the drive thru and even to make purchases online. I don't like to carry cash on me so using my visa makes my life alot easier.

    First of all we have to understand the fact that MasterCard and Visa do not issue credit cards. They make money by processing transactions between your point of purchase and your bank. They have nothing to do with your cash rewards, interest rates, late fees or customer service issues. It's all your bank that does.In a simple word i can define it as payment networks that connect merchant payment terminals with your bank’s credit card department. That's it.
    But if you ask me which one, i would say i am comfortable & good with VISA cards. I used to fly foreign countries very often especially India, middle east asia and europe. What i can find that it is VISA that most of the stores/business accept. This is an addtional point which I support VISA -MasterCard offers “Return Protection” on very few cards, whereas Visa Signature offers the service broadly. So go for VISA

    I usually use my Master Card every day for gas, groceries, hardware, computers, office supplies and most of all I use my credit card for internet purchases. The credi card helps buy things without worrying about carrying alot of cash with me.

    I have a number of cards and of course a Mastercard and a Visa too. Which card I will use at the time depends on what store I am at. I like rebates and different cards have different deals depending on the store or product being purchased. For example, if I am buying gas for the car I would use my PenFed Visa since it has a 5% cash rebate for gas, but only 1% for other stuff. For the other things in life, like groceries, I use my Discover card or one of the others I have, whichever has the best rebate at the time.

    Visa handles everything I need for my daily purchases. Whether it's paying bills or just catching a bite to eat with some friends, the important thing is that I'm always confident in pulling it out that I'm secure when using it and that I know it will work. After stories of failed transactions or stolen information, this is exactly the card that I need and want. The rewards system doesn't hurt either.

    The main reasons I use my Visa and MasterCard are for security during online transactions. Though I could use my bank account, I find that the security features available for my cards make them a smarter choice. Using them also generates rewards that benefit me later as well. There is nothing better than buying a gift for someone with my cards and earning something for myself in the bargain.

    I use my Visa and MasterCard for several things. One of the things I love to do is shop online. When you buy things online of course you are going to need a credit card. Last Christmas I actually did all my shopping online at stores like Amazon, Ebay, Gap, Macy’s and Old Navy. My credit cards also have reward points so I love using them whenever I get gas. They usually give you more points if you use the card at a gas station.

    With the kinds of cards you can get these days, using a credit card is so much more than what it used to be. It's not just a matter of buying things you don't yet have the cash for - sometimes it's just for the convenience. So simple to use, and with the Capital One Visa credit card you get your reward points. I try to use it instead of cash as much as I can, because even if I have the cash, I can use it to repay the balance within a month and have an improved credit score.

    I do the exact same thing. I have cash but I always use my Amazon Visa credit card to pay for things. Not only is it more convenient but I also get reward points which then I can use to get cash back.

    I like the Chase Freedom card. A card with 0% on balance transfers for 15 months could really help someone pay down higher interest cards. Think how much you'll save in interest. You'll make up for that balance transfer fee pretty fast!

    It is very important to always have a master or visa card (I have a visa). Life is full of unexpected financial events and emergencies, and having my visa card gives me the peace of mind to know that I will be okay when faced with something like this. I really try to save my card for when I really need it, so that I will have a good credit balance available when the time comes. I use it every now and then for small purchases and pay it off so that it helps establish my credit. I also find that I have situations where I can only use a credit card as opposed to a debit card. I had to rent something recently, and they would only accept a credit card for me to be able to rent.

    I use my Capital One Visa credit card for many purchases, not just for emergencies. More recently, I wanted to purchase a TV that was on sale for a limited time at a local retailer. I didn't have enough cash right at the moment, but I was lucky that I had my Visa card. I was able to charge the TV on my credit card to get the sale price at the store. And the great part was that I built up more reward points on my credit card to use later. I couldn't have done that with cash! I paid my balance in full within only one month to help increase my credit score. If I were to apply for another credit card, I definitely would pick another one with great rewards and a 0% transfer rate, like the Capital One Quicksilver Cash Rewards Card.
