A credit card is a type of revolving credit, whereas a revolving credit account may or may not be a credit card. Revolving credit can also include other types of accounts, such as a revolving line of credit with a bank or a home equity line of credit.

A line of credit is one type of revolving credit, which works similarly to a credit card. Both a line of credit and revolving credit have a set amount available to use, and when you pay down or pay off the amount, the credit is available for you to use again. A line of credit may use collateral to secure the loan, such as a business building, or it may be unsecured or without collateral, such as a credit card.

A revolving credit agreement is a legal contract between a lender and a borrower whereby the lender agrees to lend up to a certain amount to the borrower for some period of time. The borrower agrees to make minimum periodic payments during the time that the revolving credit agreement is in force and pay off any balance due at the end of the contract period. Many revolving credit agreements automatically renew after the agreed period (unless the credit circumstances for the borrower have radically changed). An example of a revolving credit agreement is the credit card. A credit card has a credit limit ("up to a certain amount" or "maximum"), an expiration date ("some period of time") and minimum payment requirements ("minimum periodic payments"). Most credit card agreements are renewed before the original agreement (the card) expires.
