The type of card that you should use is going to be based on your overall intentions for wanting to use a credit card. One reason for choosing to pay with a card is because you’re trying to get the most out of your purchase. If this is the case, you definitely want to apply for something like a general rewards credit card and depending on the total value of your purchase, it may be an even better idea to apply for a rewards card with a sign-up bonus. Based on the rewards card you use, the points you earn may be redeemable for award travel, a statement credit or a Nike gift card. If you’re only using a credit card because you don’t have the funds together, your best option would probably be a 0% intro APR card.
