when buying something expensive like electronic gadgets, home appliances and other things, how do you prefer to pay? do you always carry cash or do you charge it with your credit card? anyone who prefers to pay with check here?

i prefer cash and debit cards. in fact i do not hold a single credit card. I used to have one earlier, but i am very irresponsible as far as shopping is concerned and ended up shopping more than i wanted. Then i decided to surrender the credit card thereafter.

having a credit card is a big responsibility as well as a big priviledge. you need to be very disciplined or else you will drown with credit card interest.

i do not like carrying money with me. i usually have only enough money to buy myself coffee. i pay everything with my paying card. i do not even remember when was the last time i bought something using cash.

oh well, it is safer on that way, carrying big amount of cash is really dangerous since crime is rampant on our world today.

I would probably use my credit card just because of the extra protection that gives you on those large purchases. You can contact the credit card company if you have a problem and you can't get the store to help you and the credit card company will investigate the matter and in some cases, even reverse the charges and you get your money back.

they say that too, credit card is more convenient to use instead of always carrying big amount of cash.

I don't have any credit cards I don't manage to have one coz I don't like to have a debt obligation. I'm afraid of debt hehehe, I don't like someone knocking or mail notification reminding that I have to pay my debt. Thats why I do always pay it with cash.

no matter what way to use .the basic principle is security,if we buy too many things,i think it is not a good way to use cash,the best choice is using credit card .
