More than a third of Britons believe that owning a credit card has allowed them to live beyond their means, new research suggests.
The survey, by Topcashback.co.uk, found that more than three-quarters of Brits own a credit card.
Around a quarter of Brits are not happy with the amount of interest they are paying back on their credit card and a similar proportion of consumers do not trust themselves with their credit card balance.
Nearly one in five are looking to use their credit card as a way to spread the cost of spontaneous and luxury purchases, while 28% admit to having maxed out their credit card in the past.
More than a quarter of Britons said they have come to regret a purchase straight afterwards.
