Just a random poll question. Get a littler conversation going. Some people I know seem to only use cash, some people I know only use cards, and some mix it up.

 

I guess the real or alternate question is how "cashless" are you?

I guess I would answer cash, but it's in the form of debit cards.  I don't have any credit cards (save an Amex for emergencies) so if I don't have money in the bank I can't spend it.  I started doing that after getting myself into debt (not horribly, but I didn't like it).  I probably have the "self control" to have a credit card now but I honestly don't miss it.

 

If the point was strictly about cash vs. using a card, credit or debit, then ignore my meandering ramblings.  I use a card.

Anything to avoid the front page fiasco eh? ;)

 

 

 

I prefer to pay with (credit) card where I can. I'd seriously reconsider shopping at a place that doesn't take a card - which is extremely rare.

 

Failing that Paypal is my next option, and cash (whether physical or electronic) only if I have to.

Plastic mainly, cash for minor things like a drive-thru and such.  Think I've literally used two maybe three checks, tops, over the past year.. I'm pretty much over checks,  hate using them and a pain in the butt.  Curious if "real" money disappears in my lifetime.

Credit cards as much as possible. I trend to not shop at places that won't take them. Pay them off every month of course.

Depends what it is.

 

Takeaway = cash.

Online purchases = card.

Groceries = voucher card.

I voted always Card but there are a few, and very few occasions I will use cash but I just don't tend to carry it.

Nearly always a credit card... which protected me better when my card got cloned (as the bank is joint liable and therefore I didn't have any hassle getting thousands of pounds back within just hours!).

 

Occasionally cash, but rarely these days.
