A Credit Card allows you to make payments at merchant establishments without using cash. A lot of online purchases require you to make payments by a credit card. The bank issuing the credit card would keep track of all your purchases while ensuring that at all times your outstanding is below the credit limit approved for you. At the end of the month, you would receive a bill to clear your outstanding amount. Unless absolutely necessary, it is best to pay up the entire amount since any outstanding amount after the due date invites extremely high interest rates. These days, most banks work with various merchants to offer special discount deals, give you the flexibility to convert your payment into an EMI, offer cash-backs and help you earn loyalty points that you can redeem for a range of gift vouchers or even air tickets.

Tampa Bay signed Jose Molina in 2012, at age 37, and gave him the most playing time of his career. He didn’t hit much, posting a .616 OPS in two seasons to more or less match his career norms, but the Rays love his defense behind the plate.
And now Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that they’re working to re-sign Molina, likely to a two-year contract. That would cover his age-39 and age-40 seasons, although in Molina’s case it’s not like he’s at any danger of losing speed and athleticism.
As long as he can catch–and most importantly frame the hell out of pitches–he’ll add value.
