The Fools over at have published an article on the pros and cons of the 3 major plastics we use today (debit, credit, or hybrid).
Check on the Jump below for a great source of information about these similar but different products.
I personally use credit as often as possible for several benefits (more of my reasons to come in a later post):
- Interest-free loans for 25 days or so
- Personal liability of up to $50
- Easily disputable
- Builds credit (facilitates getting other types of loans, like mortgages)
