I have excellent credit so I used a Credit Card that had 0% interest for 18 months to do many of my mods. Its almost paid off and have'nt paid a dime in interest. The Z is almost paid off as well.

BTW what credit card is that? I have great credit too and that sounds amazing!



As for my mods, I turn to Randy Moss's line of thinking "straight cash, homey"

I tried whoring my body out for mods, but after it took nearly 4 years to save up enough for an intake... I've since reverted to more conventional means.

LOL! Yeah it's funny when guys joke about being a gigolo i think the nation is originally that you would go around sleeping with semi hot frustrated house wives. I think the reality though is the majority of your clients would either be fat ugly chicks or fat ugly dudes.

I use American Express for 99% of my purchases each month, and then pay American Express off in full.....in cash.

I was able to haggle for a mod per money shot.

Discover, they probably still have a promo going on- not sure if it is still 18 months. But I am not BS'ing it was 18 months for me.

Damn Danimal, sounds like you'd have been better off finding a woman you hate and giving her a house.. lol


Anyways, I'm a cash only guy. Basically, a credit card for me is used for two things - Buying shit over the internet, and buying food/stuff while traveling (takes care of conversion rates and I don't end up with a ton of Rand or Euros or Loons that I can't do anything with..) I don't buy anything I can't afford. Using this strategy actually allows me to afford more stuff in the long run. I can't stand people who are quick to swipe the card on shit they don't need, and end up deep in debt and cry how poor they are. STOP spending other people's money.

The results are interesting...

So far the responses don't quite reflect the reality that I have experienced from talking to people in real life. I guess the Z community is a fiscally responsible bunch.
