Always with my card
Mostly with my card
I can't decide
With every potentially privacy invading technology I decide to use I do give some thought as to whether or not the convienence is worth the potential loss of privacy. I'm trying to get my home to be completely paperless (all bills delivered electronically, all records stored electronically etc) because I hate paper. There's potential loss of privacy - emailed bills and documents can be intercepted - but it's worth the loss of privacy to insure that I don't lose the papers. Much of those are stored in google docs or dropbox or SugarSync or backed up via an online backup solution because losing those records - or years of photos - to a house fire would be a disaster. Again there's a potential loss of privacy there but I deem it worth it to insure important documents are safe.
Same with Amazon and other online retailers. Use them all the time but the convienence is worth it.
I can live with less privacy if the counterbalancing convienence is worth it to me.

Quo usque tandem abutere, Trump, patientia nostra?
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Secondly - just because you feel a false sense of security that your bank can bail you out (or your assertion that they will), is exactly the attitude that causes issues like the 2008 financial crisis or our astronomically high levels of personal indebtedness. It's the unwillingness to understand or take ownership over the fact that you're being financial reckless with your money.
since they have an insurance policy on it just like the credit card/debt card and credit cards they offer theres no difference for MY finical institute.
I guess it was my personal indebtedness and unwillingness to understand or take ownership that made me ask my CU these questions and read the contracts/agreements so that i understand them and know the fact that me using a thier card is no different than thier other cards when it comes to fraud security/protections.
you tell a cute story though, thanks, ill keep doing what im doing and be factually protected just like if i used their credit card. Its weird you seem so angry.

Almost always with a debit card. I carry very little cash on me, and I hate to use credit cards.
