    20. Don't have any. I have enough money not to need them
    I think a fair proportion of credit card users have enough money not to need them.

    Then why have them? Serious question; I haven't looked into it so I don't know what the benefits are.

    Businesses can get huge lines of credit successful or not, my business which has made a profit but is still getting to the stable point has a credit line of £32k in HK for just one CC and hell of a lot more in Dubai (although admittedly it's connected to the real estate side). If your business plan is solid and you're showing signs of growth and know the direction you're heading, you can get credit easily.

    Ridiculous, I guess it depends on what people are borrowing for then, I recently raised capital to purchase property in the UK, I guess it's different as it's secured debt rather than unsecured but it's still possible to get finance through a LTD company. I suppose it also helps that I have the backing of a financially secure family trust which can bail me out should I require it

    I have mine for cashback.

    Set to make around £300 this year from using my cards.
