  • Be cautious about credit card offers

    College students and high school seniors headed for college may receive letters offering them credit cards with zero percent fees. They should read those offers carefully, advises the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority.

    Most cards that offer zero percent interest to new cardholders do so for only a limited time, perhaps six months. After that, the interest rate may rise to more than 20 percent, depending on the cardholder’s payment record during the introductory period.
