Maria Bartiromo: I Don't Have A Credit Card (VIDEO)

Maria Bartiromo doesn't have a credit card, she told Ellen DeGeneres on Ellen's show, which aired Wednesday.

"I have a debit card, but I don't like credit cards," CNBC's Money Honey told Ellen. "I'm thinking actually of getting an American Express card just because you have to pay it off in its entirety, and I'm a big believer of that. But if you're gonna load up on debt on your credit card, I am just so not of that mindset. If I don't have it in my checking account, I don't spend it."

Ellen, who stars in ads for American Express, cheered on the possibility of Maria getting an AmEx.

"You should get an American Express card, for sure," Ellen said with a wink. "They're great!"
