For some reasons, I have deposited extra money into my credit card.

I now want to utilize *effectively* the extra money that is there in my credit card by investing for future. How do I do it ? One thing I can think of is go to a gold selling shop and use my credit card for purchasing gold coins/biscuits. Can you please suggest any other useful ways of spending the money that is there in my card so that that investment is useful for the future ?
