The previous post didn't mention that credit card companies charge the merchants who accept the cards between 1% and 2% of the amount charged. Therefore, the convenience users who charge $1000 a month are generating $10 to $20 a month in fees from merchants. It is quite possible that the card company can make a small profit off this amount. Therefore, a customer who charges plenty and pays if off every month may well be a profitable customer. Just making it clear that we who pay off the card every month aren't necessarily taking a free ride at the expense of people who carry a balance. Best wishes, Chris
