    Quoted from frolic:

    And you're likely right, probably dodging taxes, which I can't support either since I pay my full share, so why should I support a tax cheat.

    I'm not sure about that part -- it's probably more likely that they just don't want to pay the credit card fees - which are like 3-5% I believe (who do you think is funding your bonus points on your card?). That said, the law now lets them charge MORE for credit card if they want, so they could go that route.

    Quoted from robotron911:

    Well then you live in an apartment or a tent. Or you were given an inheritance. Very, very few people can afford to drop cash for payment in full on a house. And, most can't pay for a car with cash. And, you must have never had a medical emergency or emergency in general (say a central air dies on you). Credit is there for a reason. It's just for many credit is used for a convenience now not for what it's original intent was.

    He said he's never paid a cent of interest to a CREDIT CARD company, nothing about cars and houses as that's a different beast. I'm in the same boat he is -- I've never paid a cent of credit card interest and I use the card for everything (my wife once used the card on a 60 cent cookie cutter, true story...). It actually helps me track my spending because I import all of my data into Quicken for easy analysis. I can tell you how much I spent eating lunch at restaurants in Q3 of 2014 if I want. It's great for reviewing spending changes and finding areas to spend less in so you have more money to buy pins.

    Quoted from poppapin:

    How do you pay for that pinball machine you bought from a private seller?
    Cash is KING!!

    PayPal the first time, and a personal check the second... I guess my sellers were trusting, and I appreciate it (since they had to ship both of them). (I realize I'm the outlier here though).

    The reason I prefer credit cards (aside from rewards points). If I have money in my wallet and it's stolen, it's gone, whether it's $1 or $1000. If someone steals my credit card information, I'm not out a single penny for the losses.

    Quoted from fattdirk:

    Now this only applies to credit cards. If you use your debit card than that's another story. I never ever use my debit card for anything as it is a direct link to my bank account. I had that compromised one time and it took a month to get the money back. The only thing i ever use my debit card for is getting money from the ATM which I rarely do.

    Agreed! I don't even have a debit card, just a regular ATM card. I got into an argument with my bank about a decade ago, saying I didn't want a debit card. They insisted that was the only option, that they couldn't issue a regular ATM card. So I said, "Fine, if you can't give me an ATM card, I'd like to close my account please." The person sighed, opened a drawer, pulled out an ATM card, and gave it to me. I should've closed the account on principle right there, but I didn't.
