You shop online, you want to make sure that you are using a credit card instead of a debit card to protect your bank account from online attacks and scammers.

The advantage your credit card has over your debit card is you only have a $50 loss if it is stolen and most times your insurance or credit card company will cover it. With a debt card the funds come directly out of your bank account. You might have trouble disputing the charges or recoverying the money if you are unhappy with the service. If your card is stolen, you could have your bank account drained before you know it.
