How old were you for your first card? Were you ready to have it?
I've made sure to educate my girls even at their ages now so they'll be better prepared to avoid the same credit hole I stepped into.
I was in my early 20's! And NO! I was not! I don't think they should advertise for anyone under 21 actually!
Quoting bamababe1975: I was in college, 19 or 20, and definitely wasn't ready for it. My parents never talked about credit cards so I had no clue what I was getting into.
