Credit Card

A credit card is any card, plate, or coupon book that may be used repeatedly to borrow money or buy goods and services on credit. When using a credit card to make a purchase, the cardholder is accessing an established credit line to pay for the goods or services purchased. The term credit card originates from the common use of the plastic card with an embossed account number on its face.
