Most credit cards offer the ability to withdraw cash immediately. This is known as a "cash advance." A cash advance is added to your credit card balance the same way a purchase is, however, they usually come with higher interest rates and fees. Most financial advisers recommend avoiding credit card cash advances; however, if you're in a bind and need cash fast, it may be your only option.
Examine your statement or contact your credit card company to determine what your cash advance limit is. The cash advance limit is different (usually much lower) than your purchase limit.
Determine the cash advance interest rate on your account. Cash advance interest rates are usually much higher than normal purchase rates. Once you find out the rate, determine if you still want to withdraw cash from the card.
