Credit Card
A CREDIT CARD is a payment card issued to users (cardholders) to enable the cardholder to pay a merchant for goods and services , based on the cardholder's promise to the card issuer to pay them for the amounts so paid plus other agreed charges. The card issuer (usually a bank) creates a revolving account and grants a line of credit to the cardholder, from which the cardholder can borrow money for payment to a merchant or as a cash advance . A credit card is different from a charge card , where it requires the balance to be repaid in full each month. In contrast, credit cards allow the consumers a continuing balance of debt, subject to interest being charged. A credit card also differs from a cash card , which can be used like currency by the owner of the card

Mills & Boon
MILLS & BOON is a romance imprint of British publisher Harlequin UK Ltd . It was founded in 1908 by Gerald Rusgrove Mills
Gerald Rusgrove Mills
and Charles Boon as a general publisher. The company moved towards escapist fiction for women in the 1930s. In 1971, the publisher was bought by the Canadian company Harlequin Enterprises, its North American distributor based in Toronto, with whom it had a long informal partnership . The two companies offer a number of imprints that between them account for almost three-quarters of the romance paperbacks published in Britain. Its print books are presently out-numbered and out-sold by the company's e-books , which allowed the publisher to double its output. The publisher has been criticised for books that are considered low-brow and formulaic, although this has also been cited as one of the reasons for their success

Debit Card
A DEBIT CARD (also known as a BANK CARD or CHECK CARD) is a plastic payment card that can be used instead of cash when making purchases. It is similar to a credit card , but unlike a credit card, the money comes directly from the user's bank account when performing a transaction. Some cards may bear a stored value with which a payment is made, while most relay a message to the cardholder's bank to withdraw funds from a payer's designated bank account. In some cases, the primary account number is assigned exclusively for use on the Internet and there is no physical card. In many countries, the use of debit cards has become so widespread that their volume has overtaken or entirely replaced cheques and, in some instances, cash transactions. The development of debit cards, unlike credit cards and charge cards , has generally been country specific resulting in a number of different systems around the world, which were often incompatible

Four Wheel Drive
FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE, also called 4×4 ("four by four") or 4WD refers to type of a vehicle, specifically one with its drivetrain capable of providing torque to all wheel ends of a two-axled vehicle simultaneously. It may be full-time, or on-demand, and is typically linked via a transfer case which provides an additional output drive-shaft, along with additional gear ranges . When a four-wheeled vehicle has torque supplied to both axles, this is described as "all-wheel drive" (AWD) . However, "four-wheel drive" typically refers to a set of specific components and functions, and/or intended offroad application, which generally complies with modern use of the terminology
