Need some financial help when it comes to your holiday shopping? Sometimes, picking the right credit card can save you more than you think. Between intro bonuses, rewards and 0% intro APRs, the right credit card can be your best friends during the holiday season. Here’s what to look for in a credit card.

Pick a credit card that gives you the highest rewards for shopping at the stores you will be frequenting the most this holiday season.

Many credit cards are now offering a 0% intro APR for long periods of time, from 12 to 18 months. If you want a little extra time to pay off your holiday expenses, try for one of these cards, since you won’t be paying interest on your balance for a year or more.

Look for credit cards that offering intro bonuses. These usually offer a certain amount of rewards or cash back if you spend a certain amount of money within the first three months. These range from $50 to $400. Use these cards to alleviate some of the financial stress you feel during the holiday shopping season.
