This is a question Debt pron

Watching TV the other day we caught one of these "Bank of Mummy or the Wife" type shows and we thought, "This is Debt Pron." I.e. peoples financial problems exploited for the voyeuristic pleasure of others. Then we thought, "We bet lots of people on B3ta have massive financial problems. Let's exploit them." So, confess them all. Dodgy credit cards, lending money to some bloke in the pub, visits from the bailiffs, using one card to pay off another. We want to wallow in your fiscal pain. So, what is your biggest money fuck up?

Buying on credit.. or not.
ape: yes, you should buy things on credit card even if you can afford to buy it.

1) You get protection from your supplier going bump, etc.
2) Interest on the money for your purchase for up to 30 days..
3) Possible cashback, points, or money to your favourite causes.
4) If buying over the web it needs a credit card
5) The amount you can purchase may be limited in comparison with a switch card, which is directly backed by your bank account!

Common sense, surely?
