  1. These suggestions are good if a consumer has a habit of keeping balance. I pay for the balance every month so I cannot give up use of credit card because it is automatically 2% back as travel money. I charge HOA fees; $14.95 fee is less than 2%, rebate if I pay at least quarterly. Some utilities will encourage credit cards, then I pay from my checking accounts.
