    I Did....

    I used to have a credit card, but when money for apartment came through two years ago, the first thing done was all debts were paid off and the credit card cut up.  I have a debit card, as I simply never carry cash around as know that would spend too much if it was that...

    Cut Them All Up Years Ago.

    It is almost unheard of in the company I keep. I am often looked at as if the cat dragged me in from outside when I tell people I do not have a credit card. "They often ask: How on earth do you manage to travel so extensively, maintain your lifestyle, or even conduct business...

    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...

    Nor Do I Wish to Have One

    I don't have a debit or credit card through choice. My mother didn't teach me much but one thing she did teach me was that if I can't pay for it now I can't have it - end of discussion. I never get anything on credit because I don't know whats around the corner, the money might...

    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...

    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...

    Never Had One

    I never had one because I can' seem to get a long-term job to be able to pay for stuff I want to buy from the stores; also I don't think I"ll ever want one because I don't like the idea of buying, and waiting few weeks for the bill to arrive to pay it. I prefer to...

    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...
