I hear you there...debt seems to be never ending. the only thing we can do is try to manage it the best way we can. just paid off our cards and now more is on there with online shopping for Christmas etc. I won't use my debit because i'm scared. at least with a credit card they're easier to work with should something happen.

Could you just explain why you are scared with a debit card. What do you think can be a threat possessed by a debit card?

Maybe because you have better backing with a credit card if you information is stolen, alot of card companies have that policy, where I don't think alot of debit cards do, you would have to file disputes through your bank and go through more hassle trying to get your money back. That is just my guess.

It is alot easier to dispute with a credit card vs a debit card. You can just call the credit card company while the bank is alot of paperwork that you have to file personally at the bank, pain in the rearend.

I have one debit card, one credit card and one paypal card. I use the paypal for all online purchases because I know it is very secure. I only use the credit card for travel expenses, I use the debit card for most of my shopping like groceries and etc. With all make sure that you note what you have spent to make sure the correct amounts are coming out. I use a check book register for each one, it is just easier that way.

Paypal is a secure pay system that will allow you to pay for items and then pull the money from your bank account. I use it all the time to purchase through ebay and other online purchases. I have never had a problem with it. If you have other questions, just yell.

I have a Paypal debit card, too. It IS a very good card. You can 'attach' your bank account with it, and it's 'secure' when you use it. No fees, etc. like a credit card.

Paypal seems like the it's one of the ONLY cards that are safe. Ya know? I just had to replace my bank debit card, because someone got my Debit Card number and made an unauthorized purchase.

Wow sd chargers what did you do. I hear that your own bank is less likely to back you up as a credit card place. That is sad if it is true. Goodnatured..I was always told that you needed to open an acount and then use that money. My brother started a paypal account recently and didn't explain very well. I myself have always been afraid of ebay. I heard once that it is the worst site for contracting a virus. Is that true?

FIREYONE...what do you mean " what did I do?" I have a Paypal debit card...1) I think it's safer than having 'regular' credit cards and 2) the 'bad credit, credit cards' have WAY too high of an % rate. I DID have a 'bad credit' card at one time. Just got to the point the % was killing me.

I think for online purchases, paypal card is the most secured and convenient one. Paypal debit card has in fact no annual fees and interest rates that are associated with credit cards. For other expenses like travel and grocery one can always use a credit card.
