Glossary: What these words mean

credit
Credit can mean two things:

  1. when a bank gives you money and trusts you to pay it back by a certain date. For example, you might have a credit limit of $1000 on your credit card. This means that you can spend up to $1000 because the bank thinks you will be able to pay it back.
  2. when you have paid more money for something than you needed to. Credit is the extra money you paid.
debt
Debt is owing someone money.
contract
A contract is an agreement between two or more people. People agree that they will do something in exchange for money or another favour (action). Contracts can be written down or spoken. For example, when you buy something at the store you are agreeing to pay for the things and they are agreeing to give it to you, so it is a contract.
