I don't have "mod" money....two in college, four car payments, etc. ;) I will though at some point....eventually my money will be mine. I see a light at the end of the tunnel (I hope anyway, but I bet it never ends).

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.
Yep, it's Discover. My wife just got one.

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.

I wouldn't go that far. I've contemplated selling body parts for bodykits.

John hit the nail on the head. How the hell someone could mod a car that they don't own is beyond me.

^^"how the hell someone could mod a car they don't own" ? simple by turning a wrench. Why someone would mod a car they dont own? Maybe their payment is only $215 a month and they only owe around 4k and its no big deal to pay a very small amount of interest on that amount to have some fun.

I figure out the bills for next month and if I see I have enough cash, I will purchase whatever. It doesn't help tho that I want the more expensive things. I only use credit cards on emergency; thankfully nothing major has happened yet.

Im just curious, For all that voted cash for mods-- did you wait till you had enough cash to pay for the Z outright ???

Nevermind, I'll shut up already i'm kicking a dead horse. You guys are right paying interest on credit cards is rediculous. But if a credit company offers EVEN money for a prolonged period, I say go for it if you are responsible enough to pay it off in full before interst kicks in. In my case it was 6500 0% for 18months, so I maxed that b**** out and paid it off before any interest. I am 27 and have paid less than $100 in interest ever to a credit card, just be responsible guys and gals.

Yeah, write a letter and tell that to your representative, and senator to. They need to hear it just as much as the average citizen does.
