    Credit Card or Loan? 13th Feb 18 at 10:30 AM
    Hello, I have a decision to make and don't know which way to go. I am moving house next week and have some extra cash left over from the move which we are going to use to get the kitchen done. I have 4,000 on a credit card. Should I pay off the credit card and then get a loan to pay for the kitchen or should I pay for the kitchen outright and continue to pay off the credit card? I can move the credit card debt to make it 0% interest.

    Option 2: Don't get the kitchen done and pay off the credit card?

    If you really want to use credit to do the kitchen, moving it to 0% would be preferable long-term than an interest bearing loan.
