What Credit Card Do You Use When You're On a Date!?

Re: What Credit Card Do You Use When You're On a Date!?

Back when I had better credit it was ALWAYS the American Express card. By far the most easily recognizable card on the market and always regarded as a symbol of wealth regardless of how misguided this stereotype is.

 

Trust me though, guys, you are better off pulling out your First Premier card on a first date. If that's the reason they don't want a second date then you would have had MUCH bigger problems than which credit card to use on a date.

Hopefully one with your name on it and an available balance.

 

Seriously, this is a question worth asking?

This is a gem of advice here.

I'd second this in a heartbeat.

Ha!  What's a date?  It's been so long that I have to pay someone to take me out - no need to use my cards.  Smiley Happy
