7. does being able to borrow it, at say, 10% interest count?
When my lawnmower broke, I bought a new one with my credit card. When my water heater went out, I bought a new one with a credit card (but I also have done without hot water for long periods as well.)

I am not sure what the interest rate is on my credit card though, because I always pay it off. One credit card or another is always offering me low rates for a short time, with a 3 or 4% fee (which fee amount will then be charged 19% interest as well).
