Re: Lost credit card question
Every major electronics purchase I make is with a credit card. Double warranty protection, easy return if needed.
Same with airfare. Extra life insurance if needed.
Actually, I use a credit card for almost everything. Even the debit card I use as a credit card, because I get a cash back bonus every year if I do. Makes no difference to my account which way it is used, but because the bank charges the vendor more for CC charges than DC charges there is room to give kickbacks to account holders.
As long as you actually pay for the item you put on a card it is actually a great way to get bonuses and keep a high credit rating.
That said, I don't advise anyone to do it unless they are willing and able to keep on top of that last part.
