Re: Do you have debit card/s?

Only debit card I use is Discover, where it rewards 10 cents for each purchase.  I'll use it when a purchase is below $1.

Re: Do you have debit card/s?

Have chase and BOA debit, but use neither.


100% spend on CC.


That being said, I do carry both daily when I do my morning rides JUST in case I get a flat or something I can't fix and need to call a cab and they don't accept CC's, I can have them swing by a ATM for cash.

Re: Do you have debit card/s?

I still use my Debit card, priamarly for: 


ATM usage 

Small Card Insight Transactions (i.e where I swipe my own card, or the Cashier does it and the card doesn't leave my sight).



Everything else goes on a Credit Card.

Re: Do you have debit card/s?

I only use my debit card to take money out of the ATM once a month.  We've been doing cash only for everything except for bills and at the gas station (use cash back credit card for gas that gets paid off each month) for about 6 months now.  We've been spending a lot less money doing this.  We mostly did this because hubby just spends.  He knows there is always plenty in the bank so he doesn't care.  It took him a couple of months to adjust to it, but he likes it now.  Anything left in the checking account at the end of the month, goes into the savings and we start all over again.

[ Edited ]

I still keep my Chase Debit for the ATM access, however, I will be applying for a Sapphire in January.


QUESTION:  Will my new Sapphire card operate just like the Debit card, allowing me to make deposits to my checking account ?

- Or is it a completely different type of account, which would still require me to carry the ATM-Debit card ??





No you cant use your sapphire to deposit into your checking 

Chase Freedom 1K, Chase Sapphire (non preferred) 5K, Chase Sapphire Preferred 5K, AMEX Gold Premier NPSL, AMEX Blue Cash 2600, Capital One Journey 1K.

Re: Do you have debit card/s?

I keep my debit card on me just in case I ever have to pull some cash from the ATM. I never use it to pay for anything directly.


I used to be exclusively credit/debit, but having a lot of Japanese friends, I started getting into the habit of carrying at least $20 on me at all times.

Re: Do you have debit card/s?

I carry it, but only for emergency cash withdrawals or drive thru ATM deposits. Never use it for transactions. Everyone around me accepts at least Visa & MC CCs.

Re: Do you have debit card/s?

I only use it to get cash from ATM and deposit at the ATM. I use rewards CCs for all transactions in stores that take CC's. CC's have more protection than debit cards.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

- Rhonda Byrne
