Some debit card and bank accounts offer interest rates that are lower than Credit Cards! so when shopping for a spending card be sure to examine all your options.

As I've understood it Credit Cards are charged now and paid later (usually a month) while a Debit Card is just like an atm card where you have some available funds in it that you may use for shopping, thus charged and debited from your account at the same time. Using credit card is more risky than debit card usage.
