the world of finance, floating is a concept that is widely utilized and it
is one in which consists in using adequately the existing term between the
issuing of a check and the moment in which it becomes cash. This is due to
the fact that within banks there exist a period of compensation, which may
be taken advantage of for financing purposes.
How may a person take advantage of playing the float? The answer is simple
and it does not require complicated techniques to reap the benefits. The
only requirement needed is that you possess a strong will and to be quite
organized with your budget.
this you have a variety of credit cards, you can apply to enter the game
of playing the float, which consists of the following:
in the bank a quantity of money that is equal to the amount planed on
being spent with the credit card.
with the credit card the majority of the things that are needed.
the due amount in the card until the date the date of its offered interest
rate is expired.
Which is the benefit this person obtained? When you paid the total amount,
you made use of free financing (at 0% interest) and no interest was
charged. At the same time you maintained money deposited a bank account
earning interest. The bottom line is a gain obtained from the interest of
the money deposited.
important point that you must keep in mind is that this game will have
favorable results only if you donít get into debt with the credit cards
since once the free financing is used, you will loose the possibility of
taking advantage of this game and loose the benefits that go along with
it. Remember that you must confront the interest payments, which are
usually notoriously high.
Another question would be; what can you do if you have a credit card with
a large amount that is owed? You should try to minimize the amount owed as
much as possible whether it is consolidating your debts by obtaining a
loan with a much lower interest rate and closing these credit cards
temporarily. After you have cancelled your debt, you should force yourself
to have a maximum of two credit cards and to start utilizing the float to
obtain the benefits that go along with it.
that you may enter this game, you must organize your personal finances.
The benefits that may be obtained will greatly depend on the control you
have over your spending habits and that your expenditures do not surpass
your income. Donít shop just to buy things! You must keep in mind that
when you make a purchase, you will obtain the maximum benefit possible
from that purchase. You should not invest in items that quickly depreciate
or in things that are not necessary in your life.
following this advice, it will significantly help your financial
situation. You should enjoy a good financial life and never be wondering
as to where you are going to obtain the money today in order to make your
next credit card payment.
