Just credit cards! Not all debt is bad but here in Ireland there is no bonus for having a credit card. No nice rewards and it doesn't impact your credit score that much (unless you're bad with one).

Credit card interest rates in the U.S. are 17% compounded daily, if one makes only the minimum payments the cards are never paid off. To put one's money to work it would have to earn more than 17% to have a positive cash flow. I see no way to do this consistently.
