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
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.

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.

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.

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...
