Online Banking

Most credit card companies will give you an online customer portal to manage your card account. This portal will let you pay your bills and carry out other account management activities.

You can get the account summary for a particular period via the portal. This summary will help you get a clear picture of your credit card spending habits. Most portals have a spending tracker that already gives you a summary of your credit card usage. This lets you scrutinize your spending habits and make improvements, if necessary.

Subscribe To Alerts

All credit card companies send you alerts for your transactions, bills and bill due dates through SMS. Check all the alerts to ensure that there is no fraud.
