Getting a credit card but paying it off each month?
I'm a student and I use my debit card for all purchases. If I were to apply for a credit card (likely PNC points credit card) but entirely pay off the bill every month would that help to build credit? I don't spend much money so I know I would have the money to pay it off. Also, would I be able to pay this off using my debit card? Are there any downsides to this?
