The OP wants to take his discretionary money and invest or do other things with it. He doesn't want to keep it in savings earning nothing. So he keeps running into this kind of trouble.

It's cost him many times over what he may have been saving on credit card fees, but he still insists that this is the best method for getting out of debt and investing money. I suppose it can work that way, but you have to be absolutely obsessive about checking your balance two or three times a day, and tracking your deposits and withdrawals.
