    Have Debit. No Credit Cards

    I have never owned a credit card in my life. I do have and use a debit card which is attached to a bank account. There are lots of things I would love to buy but do not have the money. The way I look at it is if I do not have the money for something it is a whole lot smarter to...

    Really Not Interested In Ever Having One Either..

    But who knows, my opinion could change later on..But for now I do not have a credit card, I don't really want any debt which I know I would end up in! I love to shop and if there if money to spend I definitely cannot control myself.

    Hm.

    Seeing as I have no credit, no one will give me one. Basically got to go for secured or nothing and I'm totally not dumping money into a secured card right now. One day I'll need credit for something and I'll get screwed over for never having a credit card. What if I need a car...

    Debt-o-phobe

    I've never had a credit card. I was never in debt in my life until last month; I had to take out a loan if I wanted to finally make it to university. But as soon as I can get that paid off, I never plan on going in debt again. It's just not worth it for me. Sure, it makes s...

    Don't Want One

    I have never had a credit card although one of the companies or banks, whoever is in charge, sent me one when I was ten or eleven. Even then I was tempted to dial the toll-free number on the back of the card but I thought about it, what good would that do because at that time, I...
