The younger generation are huge debit card users. I am more of a cash, debit card and check guy. In order of amount of use, what do you use?

As I stated above I use cash slightly more than my debit card and then usually use checks for bills.

Everything goes on our Citi card, no matter how much it costs, and paid off before any interest charges. When we have enough points we'll order a $100 card for Homedepot or Lowes, usually two or three times a year.

I noticed at a local fast, but good, food place the person at the till would always set up the transaction as a credit card tap. If you said “cash” she or he would cancel it and change it to cash. Cash was slowing them down. I usually tap.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

Cash almost exclusively locally, gas food shopping etc. Amazon is my biggest CC usage, and its paid off immediately.

Credit card for everything but never carry a balance. I’ll go a month without any cash in my wallet. I write about 1 check a year.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

Local Stores .... Cash
Gas Station ..... C C

Utility bills ... Auto pay

By paying (utility & other) bills online,
I save about 26.00 per year in postage-stamps
and
know right away that bill has been paid.
