I just opened my new debit card. Now, I have three at different banks. The reason why I have more than just one card is because I want to save money. I mean I want to be motivated to save. One more thing is that, I like collecting electronic cards. He he he... In this case, I don't have to bring a lot of cash. And in case, one of my debit cards has some problem I have two other cards to swipe. I had a very bad experience of having only one debit card. I went grocey shopping but when I was about to pay for it. A problem occurred. Since I didn't bring any cash at that time I was not able to pay for it and I left my grocery bags. Hu hu.. One foreigner offered to pay and I would just have to give my number to him so that I can pay him back. But I had doubts. So I refused. And went home sad. LOL. Happy mylotting!

I always wanted to have cards to put into my wallet and when I had my first ATM as a gift from my mother, it was one of the happiest days of my life. I was so excited to go to the bank and apply for one. In your case it could be a good idea but I think the problem would be how to deposit into all of them. I mean, unless you earn very big to accommodate three accounts with enough amount. I have one now and I could barely keep an amount in for a long time. I am going to apply for another one soon to link to my PayPal.

he he he honestly I have big problem at saving. And I don't earn a lot of money. So what I do is I just deposit a little amount at least. Maybe 200-500. I'm working on it. And I don't know if I will be successful at saving or not. I just love collecting cards. Good thing I don't have a credit card. Or else I won't save any money I guess instead I pay it for my debts and interests. LOL

I would definitely agree on not having a credit card. It is the worst idea for people who are trying to save. Anyway, good luck on saving. I am also saving for my summer vacation next year and I am planning to have every cents here as my pocket money for that said vacation. I hope I could make a lot. So right now, I am more than wishing that myLot would again offer bonuses like the quadruple earning days, but even if it's just double earning for even just a couple of days.

I am also collecting Debit and ATM cards. All in all I have about 10 debit cards in my hand. But only one I deposit more funds. It wasn't happened to me yet. Aside for bringing my cards I always bring also cash. Never happened in my life I was embarrass because my cards doesn't work or I don't have cash at hand.

I have a few as well, bu it is because we have different accounts at different banks. I carry 2 at a time vs carrying credit cards.

I understand why you need multiple cards in case one of them does not work. But I don't quite get how multiple debit cards will motivate you to save. Won't that just make it easier for you to spend your money?
