Credit where credit is due : Phrases


Credit issued towards a purchase - whatever and whenever.


Visa would gladly issue credit where credit is due for anyone foolish enough to pay their exorbitant & ludicrously high interest rates.


The expression credit card was coined in 1888 by futurist author Edward Bellamy, who wrote a fictional account of a young man who wakes up in the year 2000 and discovers that cash has been replaced in favour of a credit corresponding to his share of the annual product of the nation, and a credit card is issued to him with which he procures at the public storehouses whatever he desires, whenever he desires it. Sixty years later his vision, in slightly altered form, came true.
