Nowadays credit cards are more and more popular in our country . In the past people just could't imagin that they would use "future money" and they kept the concept of saving money . But now young generation here are crazy about credit cards . They begin to give up saving money already. But some of them are living a very confounded life . They overdraft a lot and have to borrow money from others to return the money back to their credit cards . How many credit cards do you have ? Please share your experience.

I don't have any credit cards. And I don't plan on having any. I just don't want to get into more debt or anything like that. I just don't want to lose track of the money that I earn or anything like that.

Hello Grace, Nice discussion. I admit credit card is so important to me, but of course I am not fancy in using the future money. So I only have 2 credit cards. The first one I use it for daily life and the second one is for back up purpose only. What I mean here is carrying a credit card is better than carry too much cash on hand. Just like yesterday we whole family went for a buffet dinner in a hotel and the bill came out at $300. I don't carry that much of money and I just get easily pay the bill using the credit card I have. Then I will pay back this amount when I get the statement.

It's true that cards are more effective than cash . I usually use debit card instead of credit card. Thanks.

Hi grace, I haven't had any credit card. And I will never apply for one. I perfer to use a debit card instead. I don't want to spend money that not belong to me. And I am not a wise spender. If I have a lot of money with me, I will buy something that I didn't even want to use it. And that is a waste of money. Having a credit card will give me an impression that I have money.

Yes indeed everyone says that if you have a credit card you just cann't control yourself to spend all the money from the card. After that you will begin to worry about how to return this money.

I have 2. I have one that I use on a semi-regular basis. Then, I have one that is on my hubby's account. It is for emergency purposes only.

I have three credit cards but I only use them when I know I have the money to pay it come my due date. I refrain from using it for wants. I just use it for my needs and if its really really important. I am so happy because I know I can control the use of credit card in my life.

I wanted to get one last year but really thought it was not advisable since I cannot even save up to the amount I want. So I dread to get one now when I know I won't be able to pay up and might end up having a lot of debts. But hopefully once I get myself established with a good amount savings then I might be getting one for myself for emergency purposes.

I own four credit cards but I only use 2 credit cards, the other two is for emergency only. I make sure that whenever I used any of my two active credit card, I will pay it in full come my due date. I refrain from paying in minimum amount because I find the interest too high when it accumulates. I also know some friends who were bankrupt because of credit card loans.
