Do You Use Plastic or Cash?
I recently applied for an American Express card and have only had a Visa card for about five years. I try not to use my charge cards much, but lately have resorted to charging things more. Not a habit I am used to. I looked up information on the use of credit cards and discovered this eye opening information about the secret history of credit cards.
I hope I don't go overboard with my credit cards. I can't believe how many people buy even the smallest purchase - like gum - on their credit card!!!

Thanks for posting that link. It's very interesting. I use my debit card for almost everything. But I don't consider it a credit card even though I use it as such because it comes directly out of my checking account. I use the credit function because I get points for rewards. I learned my lesson about using credit cards like free money....it's not!!!!!!!!! But I think with the downturn in the ecomony more people are using credit cards for everything...gas, groceries...even gum. I mean they take credit cards at fast food places!! I have a tendency not to carry lots of cash around.
