1 in 3 consumers fear they will max out a credit card

Recommended Posts

"More than 1 in 3 Americans — or 91 million people — say they’re afraid they’ll max out their credit card when making a large purchase."


I'm one of them except I didn't fear maxing out a CC. I did it on purpose to test the so-called NPSL of flex-pay cards where you can go beyond your CL.  And it worked great! That is even the point of issuers providing flex cards.


The thing to fear is carrying a balance. Using them to make occasional large purchases that you pay the next month and collect rewards on is one of the reasons God invented CCs.
