  • I have a no interest balance on Mattress Giant of about 5K. We had a house fire in Oct 2007 and had to buy all new mattresses. We put the cash into the house and decided to take advantage of no interest financing.

  • My boyfriend has about $3000, but I don't have any. I got into trouble with some credit cards when I was younger, so I made sure to pay them off and cancel them because I don't want to have to live in debt : /

  • Zip... I have only ever had 1 Credit Card and it had a $300 limit... Then my ex figured out that if you use the card with in 30 mins of your last purchase your last purchase won't be on there yet and you can keep spending over the limit... in a matter of hours he charged my card up to $2000... Then stoll the bills so I didn't know. Since I kept the card in a box in the closet just for emergencies I never even knew it was gone... I ended up paying almost $10000 in fees when it was all done... And NOW my credit is so bad I can't get another card... I got another man though! A real one this time!

  • I got my first and only credit card last year to pay for car insurance, paid the card off with tax return the beginning of this year, and have used it for emergencies, I have racked up this year 700 dollars when my husband had an emergency dental surgery and make my monthly payments w/o problem, will pay it off again with tax return :-) As for car, ours will be paid off come May 09', and I will be so relieved, and we don't own but rent our house.
