Re: Should I pay off these pesky credit cards???

You can find plenty of $30k houses here in Raleigh. Caution: kevlar vests not included in purchase price. Not that I would live in any of them...

Well, it's amazing no matter which side of the equation you're on. But on one side it's amazingly good, while on the other side it's amazingly bad.

I work for a credit card company. On one side, it is amazingly good when I pay my balance off in full since I get cash back. On the other side, it is amazing good when people pay interest because that adds to our company's revenue stream.
