Credit cards are a way of borrowing money to pay for bills, goods, or services. Once you've reached a pre-approved credit limit - known as 'maxing out' your credit card - you won't be able to spend any more on the card until you've paid off some of the debt.
At the end of every month you pay off at least the minimum amount of what you owe on the card - if you don't, you'll soon begin to pay interest on what you've borrowed.
