Instead

Postby pdh0224 » Sat Oct 30, 2004 3:37 am

Dear teacher,

Because there will be a shorter window to place a stop order on a disputed check - or perhaps none at all - Consumers Union and other groups already recommend that people use credit cards instead for some purchases.

Q : I think "instead" modifies "use", and the sentence have a same meaning with a sentence "people use credit cards for some purchases instead.What do you think?
