I mean, honestly, how many of you actually get enough perks to actually make up for the initial costs?

Do you travel at all for business/work? I spend at least 3-5k per year for business related expenses, and I'm a small timer. For anyone working in the consulting industry who uses their own credit card and later reimbursed by their parent company, must churn at least 3k a month. Even using a basic Costco Amex for the 2% travel & restaurant rewards + 3% gas rewards equals $720 per year in TAX FREE rewards. And this doesnt even include frequent flyer mileage.

Much easier than constantly using cash, since you can track your expenses. There are also a lot of protections that are offered by CC companies that are not offered to debit card holders.

Having change always annoys me as well. you go to pay and it's like $7.05 and you get $.95 in coins, I keep tossing them into a jar and eventually that adds up.
