    OK, I’ll bite. If Holly from Club Thrifty has no desire to ever borrow money again, why is she doing all this Credit Card churning and putting stuff on credit cards?

    Sounds like she doesn’t consider credit card debt to be debt, even when paid off in 30 days.

      I put my groceries, gas, and regular spending on a rewards card and pay it off about once a week, Steve. It’s really not that complicated. Before I started churning, I always used a credit card for convenience anyway. The only difference is that now I do specific cards for rewards. The most important thing is that I pay it in full and never pay interest.

      But you’re right. I don’t consider buying groceries on credit and paying it off weekly as debt. It’s only temporary and it works well for me since I don’t like to carry cash! =)
