Credit cards were designed to replace cash in everyday life and interactions and can act as a quick loan when you need it. It’s much easier and safer to carry around a plastic card than a wad of cash.
If you get robbed, you can easily cancel your credit card without much hassle and some credit companies have insurance against lost and stolen cards. If you get robbed of your cash, you have little chance of getting back your money.
Credit cards create convenience
Credit cards are a convenient way to carry around money but unlike a debit card, if your funds run out, credit cards allow you to spend more money on credit that you can pay back over monthly instalments. This makes credit cards very handy for when you need something, but you don’t have the cash to spend at that moment.
Credit card companies want you to use their card, so most come with specials and deals to encourage you to use your card. With Macquarie the more than you spend, the more you will save. The Hilton Honors rewards credit card comes with a host of benefits these include earning weekend night certificates, earning Hilton bonus points for every $1 spent, receive a range of complimentary travel insurances, up to 55 days interest-free on purchases as well as a concierge service.

Great to not have any problems or glitches when I'm making online purchases with my credit card. Even better to have such a generous interest free period.
