Default Do You Use Cash Anymore?

Just curious. Have you used cash in the last week? If you did, what did you use it for?

Cool

I rarely use cash anymore...it has to be something that is only a couple bucks for me to use cash.

Just about everything goes through the credit card these days... Just don't carry any balances and it's ok.

Cash is king. Don't ever be without it for emergency purposes.

Very little cash and less than four checks a month.
Last cash was for two cones at Ambrosia,$6, that was last Tuesday.

I carry cash, but try not to use it. You would be surprised how much you can "earn" from using credit cards wisely, be it for airline miles, some kind of reward points and even cash back. I haven't checked if there is a TV club for this kind of "hobby", but there should be one.

We use cash back credit cards and use them for literally everything.
Makes for much easier record and book keeping.

I rarely use cash, I get 5% back for gas, 3% back for dining out & 1% back on everything else.
