Would you shrivel up and die?What would you do??Do you use a debit card for mostly all of your purchases that you make?How would you feel??

Well I certainly would be screwed...LOL..I do use my ATM debit card for a lot of things,..but fortunately it's both a debit/credit card..as I no longer have regular credit cards--so I guess I could still use it as a credit card??? :(

Hi pyewacket,i would croak if i did not have my debit card,haha.I rely on it too much for paying stuff.I find when i have cash on me it goes faster,like burning a hole in my pocket to spend.:)

My wife and I have a few bank accounts and do not own a single debit card. I don't like them. We do have credit cards but we keep the use of them to a minimum as well. I hate bills. HAPPT POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I hate credit cards so much.I just cleared one off 2 years ago.The interest rate was sucking the blood out of me.Icut it up and burned it and roasted some hot dogs over the nice outdoor open fire,hahahah.:)

Wow good question. We use our debit card alot. It certainly would make things harder. We do very bad when trying to keep cash on us. The debit card just doesn't burn a hole in the pocket as fast. It would be more inconvienent, but I'm sure we'd survive.

Thats just it with me.When i have cash on me it seems to "dissappear"faster than a card.It would be like having to get weened and detoxed from the plastic swiping,hahaha:)
