Actual credit card


Actual credit cards usually offer flexible credit for a period of at least one month and as long as several years. Most of the retail credit cards belong to this category.

Whether a card should be categorised as a charge card or a credit card is a matter of judgement when it comes to cards that combine features of both charge and credit cards.
