I wonder whether the Europeans and Asians have caught up with the Americans with regard to the number of credit cards they hold.

How many do you have ?

I have 3 (2 private ones - a Visa and MasterCard - plus 1 corporate Visa)

You must have a lot of emergencies then.  duck 


I only have one, and am looking to get rid of it, and go strictly debit (with credit protection, of course.) I don't need a card to improve my credit rating, as my mortgage will already take care of that for me.

Anecdotal evidence seems to suggest that Americans on average still have more cards than people residing in Europe, Asia or South America; however, I would assume that the average European card carries a higher limit than its American counterpart.

I reside in America, so count me in that category. I have one credit card, a US Bank Visa. As a recently graduated college student, they kept hoping I would screw up, so they've continuously raised my limit. After just two years with the card, I am up from $1000 to $10,250! They must hate me - all on time, in full payments.  Smile I refuse to get more than one or two credit cards, though, as it looks bad on your credit - my roomate has 11, his girlfriend 6, and when they went to get a house last month in Kansas City, they had big troubles, and now have a huge mortgage payment because of how bad their credit is.

Alaska Airlines Visa
Alaska Airlines Visa Debit
Bank of America Platinum Visa
AT&T Platinum Mastercard
Chase Visa
Discover
Corporate AmEx

I don't use the Mastercard or Chase or Discover cards much at all; they're just their for purchasing power if I need it. I pretty much use the two Alaska Airlines cards for the miles...it's a nice way of racking up a couple of thousand miles a month.

The corporate AmEx gets used a couple of times a month.

I've never understood the amount of credit cards that you can find acroos the pond, and more so when they are "not banks" cards (credit cards from corporate/companies are not very well spread in France).

I do have 1 Visa from my bank (monthly debit from my account) and I'll go to Premier soon with it I think, 1 Air France Amex Gold (used mainly for big purchases so that I gain more miles  Smile ) and 1 corporate ("Affaires") Visa with the name Airbus on it....  mischievous 

I was in Australia recently and you could have the choice of paying "credit", I still wonder what it meant?

No problem, I got money on several ATMs in the USA with my Sparkasse Maestro debit card (the "Maestro" part is important). I don't know if it is possible to pay in shops with it, but getting cash is absolutely no problem.
