But yet all these places pretty much have an ATM that will give you a cash advance on a credit card, so in the end you can put in on the card.

If someone can't use a card for online porn, what the hell are they supposed to use?  Those sites are getting rich off of something.  Oh wait, it says you can't use American Express... because that's the only card everyone has, right?

You can buy Lottery tickets with a credit card. I have done it a number of times. In fact, you can buy lottery tickets with an EBT card. I have seen that too. Geepers, the slot machines in Las Vegas takes EBT cards. After all you don't want those welfare people actually spending their own money on slots do you?

I don't buy anything with a credit card unless it's an emergency. my credit card is also a debit card, so I am limited to whatever is in the account. I just tell the merchant credit if I don't want to reveal my pin number.


marriage number one and two college age kids forced the divorce from the credit cards. I can still buy anything I want as long as I know I can afford to want it!
