I hate credit cards. I'm $5,000 in debt between the two...
I've got air miles on the one. I used to have a cash back deal going but found it wasn't really worth it. They're adding up ever so slowly. I switched because I saw my mom had 16,000 air miles and wanted to one up her. One of these days I will.
i love my credit cards...i haven't paid a lick of interest on any balances i've had for like 7 years now, thank you high credit score!
i have found the best way to get airline miles is to become an aadvantage member through american airlines. once you are a member you can earn miles when you eat out at certain restaurants. right now i am getting 10 miles per dollar spent when doing so. you can add up to 3 credit cards to earn miles with and they can be from any credit card company...they don't even have to be in your name. my dad spends about $2,000 a month on dining and about half those restaurants are in the reward network, so i steal all the miles for myself!
