Why Has No One Ever Told Me About This?

If one calls up the lovely credit card company and plays nice with the automated system, one's credit limit can be doubled. Then one can buy plane tickets and book hotel rooms with virtually no money at all.

Yup, this is fiscally conservative me talking. I'm living the modern dream baby - embracing debt in a big, big way and taking my kid on a trip. What the hell...not getting any younger and all that...

God, I wish I *hadn't* learned that one so young. On a more hopeful note, did you also know that most credit cards will also reduce your interest rate if you call them up and start talking about all the other cards you are being offered with lower interest rates? My Visa is now down to 10.5% (2.9% on balance transfers which, if you're careful about keeping tabs on the time limits and have more than one credit vehicle, you can rock all year round)
