    Credits a good thing - if you have good credit. Credit cards are bad when you buy and cant afford, but want it anyway.

    I like cash, cos I can see where my money is, and im not spendin someone elses money.

    I'm a cash person. I like to see what I'm handing over.

    I love my debit card! I pay all my bills except rent with my debit card...buy everything with debit...it's just sooo easy for me to do it that way. Don't have a credit card, don't plan on getting one.

    Debit cards are great! Kinda like a credit card, but you still have to have the money to back it up!

    I'm with MD credit cards are bad things and turn innocent good people into commerical whore lunatics...

    Ok maybe not that bad, but they can ruin people!

    I only have a debit card...

    I think you need a full time job (or at least a permanent job) in australia to get one... And I don't...

    So only debit for me...

    Cash for most everything. I only use a credit card when I have to. I alway pay the balance off every month as well. I never carry a balance. I don't want all my financial dealings being tracked just on principal.

    I used to have all my credit cards paid off, but a move cross country and a divorce have quickly changed that. My goal right now is to pay them off and BAN them from my life.
