The official Get Rich Slowly position on credit cards is: DON’T USE THEM. Credit cards are a trap. They’re designed to make money for banks, not to be convenient for consumers. There’s a reason that credit card companies are making record profits. There’s a reason that banks are eager to offer consumers new credit cards. You have to question anything that a bank is eager to do for you; you can be sure it’s not in your best interest.
Having said that, for a minority of people, credit cards can be a valuable tool. If you never carry a balance, if you never make spontaneous purchases with plastic, if you never pay an annual fee, then there are some great options out there.
