Excerpt from Lesson:

Introduction:

Whenever people go into a store to buy something, they have a choice.  They can pay with cash or credit.  There can be many advantages to using credit cards, but there are also many disadvantages to using them and as well.

What is credit?

Paying with credit means to use a credit card.  When someone pays with a credit card, they will be billed by the credit card company the amount they charged.  So, if you have a credit card and decide that you really want a new CD that costs $15 you can charge it and the credit card company will pay the store.  You would then be expected to pay the $15 back to the credit card company when they send you a bill.

Why are credit cards good?
