How much will you put on a credit card this year for Christmas? When will you pay it off?

All but one was purchased with my debit card. The one put on a credit card was an Internet order. Its balance was paid off on-line today.

None.

I'm going to have a baby with Britney Spears and see if I can't jumpstart my miserable music career so that I can pay for Christmas.

Me personally? Zero. The credit card I stole from the old lady that was skimming her above-ground pool in the commercial? A couple thousand maybe.

200.00 on the credit card (for points) and it is paid off.

We charge everything, but pay it off monthly. Gives you quite a discount on your next purchase of a GM car or truck.

How much will I charge? I'm thinking that charging each family member $100 or so admission should cover all of the food expense, and most of the gift expense.

I had some old pictures restored, and still have to have them framed. It was pricier than I had anticipated, so I may have to charge the framing (probably $200-250), but should be able to pay it off next month.

We charge everything (for points, miles, or cash) but pay our balances off monthly, too. It's nice to get a little something back. Plus, our main card gives a percentage of what we charge to our alma mater. It works for us!

Good answer!!

I have a christmas club account and save throughout the year so I do not have to charge anything.

Will will charge for the Christmas presents for the points on the credit card, but pay it off with the Christmas club check.

We use the charge cards, because mine gets cash back and his gets credit towards gasoline charges. I have the money in a savings account, ready and waiting and earning a small amount of interest.

I only charged two things which were for myself. A $75 bottle of perfume and a $16 tube of lip gloss. I always buy myself the nicest things

So I assume you paid cash for all of my gifts.

What perfume do you wear?
