Why can’t you just use your credit card?



Cash can be seen and touched and kids get that, usually at an early age,

Yeah, the whole FICO score is a bit of a scam.

I have owned five cars in my lifetime, and only one time have I ever financed a car and that was when the dealership was offering 0.1% financing, which was "cheaper" than taking money out of our money market account to buy the car.

Credit cards do not automatically give you a high fico score...

"I don't think it's necessary to have a credit card to have a good fico score"

It isnt necessary to have a cc to maintain a good fico score.
