For kids just coming into financial independence, credit cards are bit of a mystery.

Some people treat them like free money sent from heaven, and some people warn you against them like the plague!

Her video starts one afternoon after getting off of work, where she was just craving a simple bag of chips!

And like many of us, Jamie isn’t a cash girl, so she got out her Mastercard to pay, apparently much to the chagrin of the lady behind her.

“As I’m tapping my card, this random woman who’s waiting in line behind me goes ‘You’re using a credit card for a dollar?! And she says it loud!”

And taken aback at how nosy this woman was being, Jamie turned around to see who was all up in her financial business.

“I was like, yeah I use my credit card for everything, and I took my chips and walked out.”

But Jamie took this woman’s rude response to teach all of us a lesson.

“I was taught when you get a credit card, you use it like a debit card and earn points with it. Ever since I turned 18, I stopped using my debit card.”

In fact, she said she uses her credit card for every single thing she buys, even if it looks silly.

“But at the end of next month I’m going on vacation and my flight is free because I’m using my credit card points. I’ve gotten a free dyson, and even free doc martens.”

So Jamie said if you’re someone who can stay responsible and pay off what you put on your credit card, it can end up being a lot better than using your debit.

I guess she got the last laugh on that lady, that bag of chips helped pay for her flight!


I love free stuff
