Credit Cards - Let The Good Times Roll And Pay As You Go

Apr 4, 2008
Despite all of the bad things associated with credit cards, there are a lot of good things you can get from them.Credit cards are now the fast and convenient way to buy everything, and anything that your little heart desires. From one of those LCD TV's to one of them little Toaster Ovens,

With one easy swipe you can buy that new Bass Boat that you been looking at, down at the Bass Pro Shop. They accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express.

Now days, they will even let you pay for that speeding ticket that you got rushing to last months pro bass tournament, cause you over slept just a little bit. Thank you Discover Card.

Visa or Master Card can even pay those entry fees for you, and your fishing partner instead of having to stop by the atm machine.

Here is some reasons why I choose credit cards over cash now.

#1 You can use them at McDonalds (over one billion served) order anything on the menu, then swipe and go.

#2 No more friends asking, can I borrow a dollar? Nope, all I got is my credit card, sorry.

#3 No more digging for that change, while holding up the line.

#4 The price of gas? Charge it, and make payments.

The list goes on and on,

Many credit cards come with extra benefits, such as discounted gas purchases and hotel reservations, and they may even offer cash-back bonuses, frequent flier miles, and more.

Credit cards are much easier to carry than a handful of cash or a checkbook.

Heck, the cashier at Wal-mart the other day, told me not to even fill my check out, she said to sign it and leave it blank.

I thought to myself, what in the world is she trying to pull?

So she took my check and poked it in the cash register slot, it spit it back out, and she handed it back to me. Now I"m thinking, did that register refuse my check? Did my wife spend to much money at the beauty parlor? Well I guess not , cause the cashier give me my receipt and thanked me for shopping at Wal-mart. Tell me now, was that a waste of something or what?

The blank check is no good for any other purchase now, I could have just used a credit card and payed my light bill with the check.

You can make payments online, If you make a purchase from a business website, all you have to do is type your credit card #, and expiration date, then the business will bill your credit card.

Did you know?

You can't rent a car without a debit or credit card, If you are moving, you can't rent that truck with cash, no sir, debit or credit card only

You can use your credit card to pay for an expensive emergency, such as,an unexpected reason to visit your Doctor,or paying for the hospital Emergency Room.

Well, I Hope this article has helped you in some form or fashion, to help you decide whatever it is that you are trying to decide.

Good luck in your quest, and Thanks for your attention.
