Poll: Are you swapping cash for credit to weather COVID-19?
Created : 19 October 2020
Many Jamaicans have been forced to dip into their savings to finance everyday expenses as a result of income losses brought on by COVID-19. But for those who may not have the cash readily available, banking institutions such as the National Commercial Bank (NCB) have implemented a five per cent reduction on the annual interest rates for all JMD credit cards, as a means of giving its customers “a little breathing room”.
At the same time, NCB believes that now is the perfect time for friends and family members to be introduced to a personal credit card.
Are you relying more on your credit card to take you through income losses from COVID-19?
