    Hello Liz, I do pay numerous regular bills with a credit card. The card accumulates airline miles and I don’t have any place to fly. Last week I drove to my vacation and my airline miles paid for the hotel, so that’s ok. I could accumulate an extra 7215 miles each year if I put my house payment on the card. I do pay the balance in full every month.
