Credit vs. Debit — Why CREDIT IS BETTER

| October 21, 2012 | 0 Comments

Jon shares some financial advice as to why credit cards are entirely better than their debit counterparts for four main reasons: 1) Credit is safer; 2) They build your credit history; 3) They’re required for special purchases like car rentals, and 4) they earn you points and cash-back rewards. Obviously, this entire argument is based on the assumption that your spending habits are equal with both: and you never spend more than you have available in your checking account. This discussion is mainly directed to Americans, aged 18 or older, where this advice applies most directly/accurately.
