Cash advance

Many credit cards allow the cardholder to borrow and withdraw cash against their line of credit - this is called a cash advance. Because this type of lending involves more risk for the credit card company, they may charge a higher interest rate on cash advances, along with a cash advance fee (usually calculated as a percentage of the amount borrowed).


Previous Credit Card Term: Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP)
