One in Seven Americans Unwilling to Go More than a Day Without Using Credit Cards
Friday, June 27, 2014 6:25 AM

A recent poll commissioned by CardRatings.com reveals roughly one in seven Americans saying they're unable to go more than 24 hours without using their credit cards.

The poll, conducted by OP4G in April, asked a representative sample of 2,000 married Americans, all of whom had a driver's license and one or more kids a series of nine questions, each of which began, "How long could you go without …"

Here's how those questions ended — along with the percentage who responded "one day" to each:

  • eating chocolate? 11.05 percent
  • drinking beer? 5.25 percent
  • eating pizza? 5.35 percent
  • using your credit card? 14.9  percent
  • checking Facebook? 24 percent
  • watching television? 35.1  percent
  • using a computer or tablet? 59.25 percent
  • using your cellphone? 57.3 percent
