  • No, not anymore. We used to and then we cut them up and got completely out of debt.

  • I have two. One through my bank and Discover. Every family should have at least one, but no more than two. Pay it off each month to keep from getting in the hole and avoiding the higher rates. You need credit these days and can't always depend on utility bills and car loans to boost your credit score. If you have an emergency, you have the credit card to help you.

  • We don't anymore. We do have a prepaid one from hrblock so we get our taxes right away and we have debit cards.

  • We have a few, but we only mainly only use one of them. A couple are store cards so they get used maybe once or twice a year like when holidays roll around. We pay all our bills on time, we never buy anything with credit that we couldn't afford to pay cash for, and have no debt so it works for us.

  • We have one that we are trying to pay off but then we will still keep it. It's been a lifesaver when my dh had to fly to FL where his dad is dying. My mom also used it to book a flight for her so she could visit her uncle who passed away just 2 weeks after she saw him. They recommend that you don't use your debit card on the internet because there is no insurance on it and someone could get your entire savings before you even knew it.

  • Just nordstrom and JC Penney. I pay them off every month. I just use to get my rewards points.
