credit is debt not money
Some people have $4000 credit available ona credit card and they think that means they have $4000 to spend. They don't.
If you "spend" credit it is a debt that must be repaid.
So if something costs $7 and you don't have $7 cash then you use your credit card to purchase it you not only don't have $7 but you are now in debt for $7 plus interest.
