The way of the credit cards

Credit cards have come a long way from what they were and evolved into something completely different. It had all started with a concrete jungle bank in the mid twentieth century. The inventor of the first bank-issued credit card was John Briggs, a banker from the Flatbush National Bank of New York. Introduced in 1946, the card was called “Charge-It.” The catch was that a user had to have an account at Brigg’s bank and purchases could be made only locally.
