Credit card always.

Except when I go to Germany where it's very difficult to find a shop accepting credit cards. Grrrrrr ... I always forget and always have to chase a cash dispenser.  Pissed

I try to avoid using my credit cards. I have too many of them and too much debt on them as it is.

I generally carry 20-40 bucks cash on me to pick up lunch and stuff. Everything else that I need to buy, and pay cash for, I use my bankcard/ATM debit card for most other purchases.

credit card as much as possible.


only because i am able to pay them off each month, otherwise carrying debt would annoy me.

also only because of all the AAdvantage miles  Big thumbs up

more and more in the city though i have found myself at a restaurant that says on the menu "we are pleased to accept cash only" really? oh, i'm so happy you are, dick. i'm not bitter or anything, but finding a cash machine is annoying.

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

I prefer to pay with my Visa card because I get one Lufthansa mile for every Euro I spend, sometimes I also use my debit card. Beside these cards I also have a little bit cash in my wallet, at the moment three different currencies:

- 27 Euro
- 20 Pound Sterling (for the MAN Meeting next weekend)
- 130 Singapore Dollar (for an upcoming trip to SIN next Tuesday)

I almost never have cash - I use Visa/Carte Bleu for everything (just LOVE EFTPOS !). The only shops in France that don't seem to accept CB are bakeries for some reason, which is very annoying ! Oh, and change required for the launderette.

I guess I've grown up with credit cards and ATM's - I often wonder how people managed before ATM's were invented ! Imagine having to actually go into the bank and queue to withdraw money ! What a mission.

Always used credit/debit card unless I go for fast food or something. I only carry about 10$ with me at the most. Guess I wouldn't net a pickpocket much would I.

I use both cash and Visa. I use Visa for almost everything, with the exception of small pizzerias/shops that do not take cards. I always use cash when I am going out to a bar/night club as well, do not want to be ripped off while I am drunk as hell. Big grin

I haven't touched cash in months. My only gripe is that lots of places don't take credit cards for small orders (like buying lunch).

Some banks have been offering their checking/atm debit cards with a FF mile connection. With my bank, Key, I can get an MasterCard ATM/Debit card that earns me OnePass miles. I believe you earn 1 mile for each dollar spent, though I am not 100% on that. Only a $25/yr annual fee... which is a bit cheaper than the Chase OnePass Visa/MC.

I prefer cash, but that's just me. Most of my purchases are pretty small (read: under $100), so I'll just pay cash. However, those small times when I am buying more than $100 of something, plus everytime I use the internet to shop, I use my Visa.

I'll usually use my Checkcard or my Credit Card and if I use my credit Card, I pay it off each month. I work downtown, so I never really have the need to carry cash.  Smile

Though I'm no expert on the matter, I understand that the protections afforded to a user of a check/debit card under US law are different than those afforded to a credit card user related to fraudulent activity. I believe that the credit card offers a holder a greater level of protection than a debit card.

Something that debit card users might want to keep in mind.

I always carry a little cash with me, just in case... Bigger purchases (car payment, insurance, etc) go on my AWA FlightFund Visa. Daily purchases... coffee, gas, lunch etc go on my AWA Visa Check Card from Bank of America...
