Paying With Plastic

By  | 

Worry about debt is weighing on shoppers this holiday season, but it's not keeping them from paying with plastic.

In an Associated Press poll, three-fourths of the Americans surveyed said they have credit cards and of those who do, four in 10 planned to use them for holiday purchases.

But one-half of those polled said they worry about the money they owe. Twenty percent say they worry most of the time about their overall debts.

Most of those using credit cards said they would pay off their holiday expenses when their next bill arrives.
