it can make shopping a bottomless pit


Using a credit card can, at best, make shopping very convenient; at worst, it can make shopping a bottomless pit.

Does the bolded make sense to you? If yes, what does it mean? Thanks.

    I've not heard this expression used in relation to shopping, but if something is a bottomless pit the suggestion is that no matter how much money you spend you will never finish it.
    It doesn't seem to me to be a good analogy as there is always a limit on credit card spending. It may be a lot more than you can afford to spend, of course.

    It means, I think, using credit card can make you indulge yourself in endless shopping.
