Save Money By Cancelling Your Credit Card

Sep 2, 2008
The credit card has changed the shape of shopping in today's world. Why, since I cancelled my American Express credit card, I have been unable to partake of a wide variety of goods and services, and that is no joke. Without that credit card, I was unable to join the local gym, to order t-shirts off of the Internet, to reserve a plane ticket online - and that is just a few of the basics. It seemed like only a few years ago that cash was the preferred way to get stuff, but those days are long gone now.

It's now normal almost everywhere in the world to use your Mastercard, Visa or American Express to pay for goods or services you may not even need with money they do not have. How many people consider the cost of paying later when they have the convenience of having now, when using their American Express credit card. In some places, credit card debt is spiralling out of control. It is true that credit debts are one of the biggest problems that are facing America today, and that is no joke.

I couldn't think of any other alternative but to get rid of my American Express credit card. There was nothing to stop me because I wasn't actually taking money from my pocket. I was using my card for just about everything, but I soon noticed the debts were mounting. The debt became too great for me to pay and I didn't know what to do.

I actually had to go through a debt refinancing service to get my credit card debt into some kind of shape where I could hope to pay it. This is not something I ever want to happen again. Today, I am American Express credit card and debt free. A lot of people would think that it is rash to blame it on my credit card, but I think that they do not understand something about human psychology.

When you have to pay for everything with cash, you are so much more conscious of how much it costs. Like I said before you are not as conscious of the cost when you use your credit card. Spending money like it was going out of fashion and it didn't take long before it was gone. Now, there is no longer a problem because there's no longer an American Express credit card.
