Yes but that's how you should do it. Don't use your debit card because if a thief steals your account info, they can drain your bank account. Use your credit cards instead.

Re: My debit card gets no more love

+1 I switched wallets about 2 months ago and kept forgetting to put my debit card in my new wallet. On a couple of occasions I needed it for cash but I didn't have it. But I carry it again now.

I put 77 cents on my AMEX the other day. I felt really stupid doing it. I don't know why. I really hate debit, using my pin.

I don't even know where my debit card is... I usually get cash from friends at restaurants when I pick up the tab...

Re: My debit card gets no more love

My debit card has been in SD mode for months now! Since I got my Freedom card that is my main card and with Blueprint I don't have to incur any interest fees. Between my wife and I we rack up about $600 in gas a month!! (Ridiculous!) Using the one main card helps us look at our spending habits to see what we need to cut down.
