A survey for credit card provider Goldfish, has revealed that 52% of UK credit card holders are missing out on perks offered by their cards.
Charlotte Hogg, Goldfish credit card managing director, said:
"Credit card holders need to demand more from their plastic. If customers hold a card that doesn't reward their spending then they should investigate what other cards might be better suited to their spending patterns.
We have found that an increasing number of our customers are using their credit cards for everyday purchases such as groceries and petrol, realising that they can reap rewards for all the regular purchases they make anyway."
Given the outlandish interest rates that credit cards charge on outstanding balances, the owners of these cards are very foolish not to take advantage of the rather modest perks.
