Do you know the difference between using a credit card and debit card?
A credit card allows you to borrow money and pay it back later with an interest rate. While a debit card means you have that money basically in cash except it's on a card, it comes directly out of a checking account. That money you don't pay interest on because it's your own money and they don't have to trust that you will pay it back. Credit cards are tricky because yes it's easy money to borrow if you don't have enough, but you also have to be able to afford to pay that money back. If you can't afford to pay that money back then your credit score goes way down and it will be hard to get anything else!
