I just have one. I have it to build my credit rating and to use when buying stuff online. Plus, using a credit card is easier than writing a check or always having to have cash on hand. I make sure to never charge more than I can afford, though.

I have two (well three, but one's overdraft protection on my checking account). I don't use them that often. One I haven't touched in over half a year, the other I try not to use too much, but it does come in handy.

Umm...just 2 I guess...seems like I have more. I do have a couple from dept stores, but I just got them to get a discount, and now they are hidden away so I won't use them. I only really use one main credit card. The other is an amex, which I got because they are so helpful when traveling abroad.

I have a Visa card and a Boscov's (department store) card. I also have a Visa check card, but that comes right out of my checking account.

I do not trust myself with more. Frankly, I don't even trust myself with this one. On occasion I have to leave it home so I know I won't be able to use it. But that said...

I my credit card.

5 majors, no department store. Several years ago, I had 6 or 7 majors and probably 8 department store cards but I was tired of being a slave to the credit card companies and got rid of almost all of them. The ones I have now all have low limits and I pay them off every month when I can. I try to be responsible.

U still wouldn't have won diamond. I was at a fundraising trivia nigth where every now and then you had to do unusual things ( my team won, I think it was the Elvis Presley impersonation..rotfl) anyway, 5 points were offered to the person with the most credit cards on them. I was stunned by how many some people had.

I have one and use it carefully, very carefully. I am rather annoyed with the way they continually try to increase my credit limit. I have unshakable caution when it comes to money, but someone like my husband or one of my girlfriends who wants everything. could get into very serious trouble with that kind of tempatation placed before them. I think there is something potentially dangerous about them. Though handy at times, very.

One, and i don't use it much. I have it linked to my checking account so that the minimum balance automattically comes out of my checking so that I don't forget to pay it. It's also set up for overdraft protection.
