GfK: Number of credit card users doubled in 2010

The number of Romanians who are using credit cards doubled this year against 2009, up to 10 pc of the urban population – similar to the level registered at the beginning of 2008. This kind of banking product is most popular with managers and highly educated specialists, GfK announces in a press release. Although the economic crisis worsened in 2010, a possible explanations for this comeback experienced is the banks’ focus on promoting credit cards this year, with an accent on various benefits, such as an extended grace period.
Those who earn more than RON 1,300 a month tend to use credit cards more than the rest of the population – 17 pc, compared to 10 pc at the level of the whole urban population.
