What do you usually pay with!? I know alot of people who only pay by debit and never have change on them, which is an inconvenience when some places dont take debit. What do you use?

I usually do not carry a lot of cash with me. The amount is about $20. I will use credit card whenever the retail outlet accept it. I find it convenient and at the month end, I can see a consolidated spending. And I do earn points for my purchases and I can exchnage it for vouchers and airline milegae for Air ticket.

Well with credit cards you can atleast see how much you have spent. The problem with debit cards is you can use it often and not know exactly how much you have spent or have left in your account unless you check, and thats when spending can get out of hand. I get paid cash at my job so I usually always have some on hand but I like putting it in my bank account so I dont spent it cuase its lying around. My boyfriend however, usually only uses his debit card and rarely ever has small change on him. It can be a bad thing when he needs money for the bus and such.

Hello younginlove I like to pay cash, because i always brought money. And i can control my money if i know how much i have, if i use debit i don't know how much i already spend for shopping.
