- July 6, 2008 at 6:55 am #259492i just turned 34 and I have never had a credit card in my life. I travel a lot for business (andam reimbursed monthly by the company I work for-therefore I have to use mu personal “card”). I rent cars at least once a month for the last 5-6 years and have never been questioned with my personal debit card.
I have one with a mc logo and one with a visa logo and have never had an issue with either one. i never remember my pin # so i always have stores run it as “credit”. i use different rental car places, not the same one and they have never asked me.
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.
