How long did it take you to pay off $5000 in credit card debt?
I have had concerns about this in the past at my own company when I had been instructed to use my card to pay for my travel, tuition and expenses for an out-of-state training seminar. The total expenses was on the order of $8000. When I returned from the training, I submitted the expense reports with all the receipts, and then for some unknown reason, my expense report fell into a bureaucratic black hole for three months. I kept telling anyone who would listen that this money had not been reimbursed and that I was getting late notices and threatening letters from the bank about impending collections actions. At first they were telling me to just pay it out of pocket and wait to be reimbursed, but I had to tell them repeatedly that I didn't have $8000 just sitting around (that would have been close to 20% of my $40K gross salary at the time).
Luckily, I contacted this guy and got all my debts cleared. Contact him via the link on my bio.
