Rounding it up

  • Inflation is the reduction in purchasing power of a specific currency.

  • Credit card companies can change interest rates based on inflation and interest rates with notice; this could leave you owing more than expected

  • In an inflationary period (or any time), get out of debt and pay down balances.
