    Yes, our credit union used to have those; it made saving for Christmas easy.

    I was reflecting that thought tonight, good old days when things were more helpful and a lot easier.

    Yes! I remember I use to put a dollar in a week from my paycheck, when I was about 15 or 16 years old. I worked in a restaurant after school, which I earned 75 cents an hour.

    It’s possible that I was confused with your reply because yes, it’s a given that people have to pay with a card when ordering on-line but my original post was based on the number of credit orders and not those debited to a checking account.

    I have a credit account with Amazon Prime but I will generally pay by debit excluding me from that 78% uptick in credit and buy now pay later orders.

    Edit: Now, whether that makes me a fool or not is up for debate but thus far I have never been considered as such.
