Hi Churchy,

Please take your time rereading my posts, because you misunderstood them. My postings were intended for those who use debit cards or write checks to pay expenses, not investment comparisons.

All things being equal, if you use a debit card to pay for $10,000/mo. in expenses; whereas, I use a cash-back credit card to pay for $10,000/mo. in expenses, I'll be $1,200 richer than you, at the end of the year. (Assuming the cash-back credit card pays 1% on every purchase, has a 30-day grace period to allow monthly balance pay-offs with no interest charged, and no annual fee.)

There, now you can afford to buy a couple of extra shares of Apple, a year from now.
