4 reasons on why you need a debit card

Everyone’s heard of a credit card, but do you know what a debit card is? Simply speaking, debit cards deduct money directly from your bank account when you make the purchase, whereas credit cards borrow the money from your bank. There are many benefits of using a debit card – we list out some of the main ones below!1.Staying within budget One of the benefits of using a debit card is that you don’t have to worry about overspending! That’s because the money of each purchase is directly deducted from your bank account, so you only get to spend what’s available. Even if you have trouble controlling your spending, the worst thing that can happen is that you spend all the money in your bank account, but nothing more than that – unlike a credit card, you will not go into debt. 2.Easily obtainable Unlike credit cards, the process of applying for a debit card is easier! Applying for debit cards generally do not require any minimum credit score, and as a result the application process is much simpler and shorter. 3.Avoiding additional fees and service chargesCredit cards often come with late fees, annual fees, and interest charges. On the other hand, debit cards typically have few or even no costs associated, as you’re only spending what’s available in your account – that way, your repayments will always be on time and you’ll never overspend. 4.Earning rewardsSimilar to credit cards, debit card have competitive rewards too! They reward users with cashback, points, or miles, without encouraging them to overspend to the same degree as credit cards do. For some people, the debit card spending model may be more suitable for those with an unstable income or those who do not want to spend in excess.What is a WeLab Debit Card?
