Re: What Bills Do You Pay With CC Just For Activity

I don't use my credit cards to pay bills. I know that a lot of people do that for the rewards, but for me, I always feared that paying my bills with a CC was the first step down a slippery slope where I would never get out of debt and couldn't get my bills paid.

Don't ask me why, considering I topped out at about 28K in CC debt just from purchases alone, but I still wouldn't want to use a CC to pay a bill.

I feel what your saying but you can still pay your bills an when you get paid off pay you credit card it full unless you get paid an do something else with the money besides paying your CC bill

The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
