I personally prefer paying by card, bcoz it is hassle free... no round ups, no messy chillers...

it is convenient for the cashier and the customer.. I hardly carry any 💰 cash Image

At a store? Depends if they accept VISA/Mastercard or cash only.

Online? You better pay with a credit card so if you get scammed, you can claim a charge back to get your money back.

Card....cash is very dirty, because a lot of people can touch it in one day....

Also the coins destroy your purse...

Honestly I have no cash anymore, just cards.

Both prefer cash for smaller amounts , but cards for larger purchases, always carry some cash just in case because even now not every where accepts cards.

I can’t be dealing with cash, haven’t used it more than a few times a year for probably the last 10 years... my husband hates using card and prefers going to get cash out the bank which makes no sense to me 🤦🏻‍♀️

I think especially right now it's better to pay by card to limit contact with cashier

At some point in the future you may not have a choice. There are a lot of places in my area that no longer accept cash payment. You can only pay by card or app. The number of cashless shops, cafes, etc has grown as a result of COVID-19. Personally, I prefer contactless payment by card, as I find it's faster and more convenient.

I wonder if anyone is concerned about privacy and other liberal stuff. With credit card payments, all information about you is accessible by third parties. Its your choice to leave a trace or not

I prefer card as it's way quicker and easier. Saves time for me and others in line don't have to wait long. I sometimes do cash but I usually already have it ready and counted before going to the register.

Card, less hassle. Electronic transaction which shows up on my bank and I'll have proof of purchase

Card is much more convenient, particularly contactless. And using a credit card gives you added security
