you’ll need a credit history to buy a house sometime in the future…
you’ll need 24 months of good credit history with at least $2000 or $3000 of debt that you have paid off or are currently managing…ie..a car, motorcyle, credit cards, or store revolving charge cards…
there are a few ways to secure those credit lines without burying yourself…

You can rent a car on a debit card just fine. My debit card acts just like a MasterCard in that purpose.
dr actually advocates using the old-fashioned green stuff and not even the debit. you might try that for awhile and just keep the debit at home for those “car rental emergencies”.
but definitely kill the cc. check out you tube on dave ramsey for all the cool ways people destroy their ccs. i like the guy who shoots his….

Once again, I have charged my credit card up to the limit (luckily I
have a low limit on the card). I have decided that I no longer want to
have ANY credit cards. They have caused me nothing but trouble.
have been in and out (mostly in) credit card debt for 25 years. It is
exhausting and there is no way I can live the rest of my life (probably
at least 40 years) like this. I would like to just use a debit card
instead and just not have any credit cards.
Do you all have credit
I am really afraid of having problems renting a car. I go on a few
trips each year, sometimes alone, and sometimes the rental car
companies require a credit card and will not accept a debit card. Is
there a way to get around this?
What do you all do? What about pre-
paid credit cards? Do rental car companies take them?
Other than the rental car problem, is there any other reason why I must
have a credit card?
can a person really get by with just a debit card
and maybe a pre-paid visa? i just want to get out of this hell.
your help will be greatly appreciated.
