It's not every day that you'll hear us tell you to use your credit card to buy a new laptop instead of using cash, but so long as you can pay it off right away there are many reasons to pay for your next laptop, or other holiday gadget, with a credit card.

In our example, we'll use a new MacBook Air 13" laptop to illustrate the savings achieved from purchasing it with a credit card versus paying in cash or using a debit card. For our purchase we used a Citi Credit card because of the extras it provided. If you are looking for a credit card, check out our list of the best credit card offers for holiday shopping sprees.
