Even if you happen to be a person that always uses cash to pay for everything, you really should strongly consider getting a few credit cards. There are so many reasons that most people should always have a few of them, in fact they are almost too numerous to list, but we will try.
The following are a few of the reasons you need credit cards. First, they are an excellent way to build a persons credit history with. If you think you do not need credit, think again. Most people in their lives will someday want to buy a house or a car and will not have the cash to pay for it. They will need to get them financed, which will be impossible without a strong credit history.
Second, the better your credit history, the lower your borrowing cost on anything you might finance. Third, credit cards are great to have in cases of emergencies. Something might happen when you do not have access to your cash, or enough cash for that matter, and this is when they will become extremely valuable.
Fourth, credit cards allow you fast access to cash; especially if you have a strong enough credit history and your balances are high enough. This has certain advantages over acquiring loans. First, they allow you to get the cash much faster. Second, you do not have to fill out any long and boring applications. Third, believe it or not, if your credit history is strong enough, the interest rate can and is much lower than most banks will charge you.
If those were not enough reasons for you to strongly think about getting a few credit cards, then you must really have a great deal of cash, and you must carry quite a bit of it with you wherever you go.
