We had some car troubles on both of our cars the last few months. It has cost us around $1200 to get it all fixed and we didn't have to dig into our savings. We decided to pay what we could with our debit card, then put the rest on our credit card and pay off the credit card when we get our next paychecks. It worked out perfect!
We used to do something similar with money from our savings. We would transfer it to our checking account to pay a bill, then put it back once we got paid. We hated seeing the number in our savings account drop so we ended up using our credit card!
Plus, we get perks when we use the CC, so that's another plus!
