I've just realized that I don't carry change anymore. Do you use your credit card for every expense in a given day?

The other day I figure out that I've been paying ALL my purchases with my credit card. Yesterday I use my credit card to buy a bag of M&Ms chocolates for my son. No more change to carry!

  • I always have cash! My DH never does. We save major purchases or paying bills online for the debit card. I use cash for smaller purchases. I had a college prof tell me once, that cash will one day be obsolete.

  • If you mean credit/debit card, yes I don't carry cash anymore either. I don't like to anyway. At least then I know if my purse gets stolen my money's covered by my bank. I always check my online banking and make sure I never give my card before pumping gas. If they want it prepaid I will at the pump. I can't remember the last time I worte a check either,lol... I get cash back on my debit card through my bank, it's nice to get a little extra money... Oh and my Hubby say's I dont' carry cash so he will have to pay for all the little stuff when we're out,lol He said that's how I get out of it,lol

  • I don't carry any cash whatsoever anymore.
    I have my debit card and that is all I use.
    I much prefer it that way, personally. :)

  • We use the credit card for groceries and gas because we earn double points when we use them in these places. We got out new car seat for the baby, a Wii Fit kit, and some Wii games all basically for free because we use our credit card so much! We pay the whole thing off at the end of the month so we never pay financing charges. It works out really well for us.

  • we RARELY ever have cash on us, and most of the change we ever do rack up goes in our sons piggy bank, lol.

    we use our debit card for everything =)

  • I never use cash for anything either...I felt bad the other day because my son wanted an ice cream from the ice cream man and obviously he doesn't take debit cards. It sucked. But neither my husband or I ever have cash on us. It makes me feel safter that way.

  • I use my debit for everything, my credit union has one branch and it s a little inconvenient, so I never bother to go get cash, I hate it when I'm at work and need a pop from the machine. I have been known to borrow kids piggybank change so I have vending machine $.

  • I make sure I have change on me for emergencies. I don't like putting small amounts on my cards.
