American Express Credit Card

Getting a credit card is almost indispensable today. Why, since I canceled my American Express credit card, I have been unable to partake of a wide variety of goods and services, and that is no joke.

Without that America express credit card, I was unable to join the local gym, to order t-shirts off of the Internet, to reserve a plane ticket online – and that is just a few of the basics. It seemed like only a few years ago that cash was the preferred way to get stuff, but those days are long gone now. All across the country and the world, people are using their Visa, Mastercard card, or American Express credit card to make purchases with money that they do not have of goods which they may not need. Although American Express credit cards are a really convenient way to make a purchase – get it now and worry about it tomorrow – it does come at a heavy cost. Credit card debt is mounting everywhere.

It is true that credit debt is one of the biggest problems that is facing America today, and that is no joke. That is one of the main reasons why I had to cancel my American Express credit card in the first place. Once I had the power to buy things without parting with my money immediately, I was almost unstoppable. I would charge everything and anything on my American Express credit card, and soon the costs would spiral out of control. I was dealing with a debt that I could not possibly pay, and I was in a state of panic. I actually had to go through a debt refinancing service to get my credit card debt into some kind of shape where I could hope to pay it. The whole situation was a nightmare.

Now, I have gotten my debt paid off and canceled my American Express credit card. A lot of people would think that it is rash to blame it on the American Express credit card, but I think that they do not understand something about human psychology. When I had to pay with everything in cash, I would know just what I had at any given time. But like I said before, the American Express credit card made everything way too easy. I could spend money like water, and before I knew it, it was all gone. No American Express credit card, no problem.
