all kidding aside use it but don't go nuts

They've been much more careful in the past couple of years. Basically, you'll still get whatever you want if you've had CCs all your life, but people trying to get a card for first seem to not get it as easily anymore.

The only reason you should use it is for emergencies or planned purchases where you buy something and pay it off immediately to build your credit score.

I know way too many people who already ruined their credit in their 20s because they think a credit card is free money

everytime you are denied, it is a bad mark on your credit report.

But now that he has one it's his chance to build up his credit.

Credit cards are good. Use it wisely. If you are getting some kind of points or cashback then use it for everything and pay it off right away. I almost never use cash or debit anymore.

This. Honestly credit cards aren't a bad thing if they are used properly, but for some reason people think it's free money. One thing you have to learn in life is that there is no such thing as free money.

The best feature of a credit card is that you can use it when life is unpredictable and you just don't have cash on hand for something that you NEED done.
