Poster you responded to doesn't seem to understand how the system works. Everyone, including the people paying cash pay for the credit card users because the 2% to 3% the store pays to CC company gets included in the prices to everyone, even the cash customers. I'm like you, free cash for X days, I pay the whole thing off before I incur interest, lather, rinse, repeat.
