Important Points to Remember about Credit Card EMI Conversion

Before applying for a credit card EMI, it's important to read the following section.

Credit Score – When you convert a purchase into an EMI, the amount you spent is held against your credit limit. This means your remaining credit limit decreases, and if you make more purchases, it could use up what's left of your limit. As a result, your credit utilization ratio increases. This ratio compares how much you've spent to your total credit limit on the card.

Timely Payments – If you've converted your purchase into EMI, it's crucial to pay the full outstanding amount, including the EMIs, by the due date. Missing a payment could result in late fees and high credit card interest rates. This could potentially lead to accumulating debt over time.

Reward Points/Discounts – Usually, converting purchases into EMI means losing out on reward points or discounts that are offered. If the discount provided is substantial, it's advisable to save money for the purchase instead of opting for EMIs.

Blocked Credit Limit – When you convert a purchase into EMI, the amount you spent will be blocked against your credit limit. This block will be lifted gradually with each EMI payment. You'll regain access to your full credit limit only after you've paid off the last EMI.

Correct Credit Card – If you have multiple credit cards, compare the interest rates offered on each of them. Banks consider various criteria when determining the interest rate, including loyalty, income, card type, and more.

Choose the Correct Tenure – Credit card providers often offer a lower interest rate on long-term EMI options and a higher interest rate on short-term ones. However, opting for the low-interest option might result in you paying a higher amount overall. For example, let's say your bank charges 20% per annum interest for a 3-month tenure, but only 18% per annum for a 12-month tenure. Now the interest amount that you will end up paying for a purchase of Rs. 10,000 will be-

Interest accrued on 3 month plan:  Rs. 493.15 [10,000*(20%/365)*90]

While interest accrued on 12 month plan will be: Rs. 1,800 [10,000*(18%/365)*365]
