Over the past year, almost two million Brits have ‘cut’ credit card debt, quite literally, by cutting up their credit cards in order to avoid getting into unaffordable debt with their credit card provider.
Apparently 6% of the £52 billion credit-card market has taken the initiative to cut up their plastic credit cards to avoid temptation and sinking into financial trouble during the credit crunch. uSwitch also believe that a further 10 million have stopped using their credit cards but keep them in case of a financial emergency.
7% of us are estimated to have between five and six unused credit cards which have a combined credit limit of £200bn.
