Snap your credit cards / by Tyson Pop

If you can buy it right now, why should you wait?

You deserve it...
You’ve worked hard for it...
You never treat yourself...

At least that’s what we’re told by the big banks offering to pay for it (for now).

The problem is, most of us have fallen for their lies. It’s one of the reasons Australia is now one of the most in debt countries in the world. We make the purchase on our cards and ignore the fact that we now owe the bank (plus interest) the money we’ve just spent.

In Australia, we used to call this bullshit.

Now it’s called normal.

Let me tell you a secret.

The bank thinks you’re a dickhead.

That’s why it treats you the way it does. Throwing money at you because they believe you’re dumb enough to take it and pay them more than they owed you later. But you’re smarter than that.

It's time to prove that by doing what many Australian's are doing. 

Snapping their credit cards and paying with cash.

Free yourself from the stress, anxiety and worry that comes through spending money you don’t have.  

Snap your credit card.

Save the cash.

Then make the purchase (only if you need it).
