If you saw my monthly American Express bill you would know that I do not use cash.

May I ask what card pays those good percentages. I use my card for everything. I especially hate to get coin change in my pockets, and then onto my dresser and eventually to the coin machine, that counts it and charges ten percent. Bill

What's cash? Do you mean those funny green pieces of linen and cotton? Nope, I use credit card companys' "cash" and they let me borrow it for free every month (have not paid them interest in over 30 years so I appreciate the loan). But I suppose there are some coins in the car somewhere - maybe.

I don't like paying interest on shyt that's gone if you get my drift. When even they make credit card that can't be skimmed, hacked, duplicated, identity stolen, or charged on by low life employees, then I might think about going all charge. I doubt that will happen this decade. Course I have not paid interest on credit card for 30 years. I am surprised they will give me one.

Cash at the Farmers Market every Thursday and prefer to leave the tip at restaurants in cash ( servers seem to like it, too!). Otherwise, just odds and ends. Even have a Starbucks app on my phone to pay for me coffee.

Cash for tips always. Otherwise I use my debit card (just like cash). For major expenses like airline tickets I use American Express. Always carry cash for emergencies.

Using it more often since our cards have been hacked around TV. Check your statements against gas stations and restaurants. Even the banks are a risk as a while back our bank changed computer systems and everyone with the same name were merged. I have a common first and last name and someone drained my account. I got the money back after a year of fighting for it and going to a lawyer.

The Internet where all these things are located is not totally safe folks. If you are going to take up a cause, here is a good one...Internet safety of our banks and cards.
