The type of card that would be best for you to use would vary based on your overall intentions for wanting to use a credit card. Let's say you are only using a credit card because you don't have all the cash together yet. If this is the case, it would be best to apply for a credit card that offers a 0% introductory APR and use that to complete your purchase. By doing this, you will be able to pay off your balance over a few months without accruing interest charges. If you only plan on using a card to avoid withdrawing cash, a general rewards credit card is probably the best option. The amount of points you could earn from a single large purchase can be highly beneficial.
