Sometimes when traveling, you might need gas, and the station is closed but the "Pay at the pump" is working, CC is the only payment option. Also, if you check into a hotel/motel, they usually want a CC for security deposit even if you pay cash. Save your cash (dollar bills) for the nudie bars along the way.
I'm with you...I'm a cash guy.
I think you earn Cabelas points on all purchase's from Cabelas. I have bought Cabelas gift cards with my Cabelas credit card then used the gift cards for the purchase at the store and slide my credit card to get points for the purchase and I have a ton of points now. I have a friend that only uses his Cabelas credit card and has had enough points for a new X bolt and a Kimber 1911.The reason i have not gotten a cabelas card yet is I can usually find gift cards on ebay for 15-20 % off. MY regular credit card gets me 3% on gas, 2% on groceries and 1% on evertyhing else. I am going to follow this thread. Great topic
Americans right now owe just under a trillion dollars in credit card debt and the average adult has over $4k in revolving debt accounts with only about 1 in 3 paying off the balance every month for a 6 month period. Maybe you're the exception to the rule...but I talk to a lot of people who lament just how expensive all this "free" money became.To those saying pay cash for everything.. Why? IF you're responsible and treat it like cash, you are giving away free money by not using it.
