    How do you pay - cash or card?

    Hi all

    Simple question here: do you pay cash or with your card?

    I would say that paying with a card is quite dangerous in terms of privacy - the bank knows all your moves and habits, what you buy, where you go and when you go. I'm not comfortable with that to say the least.

    So, what do you think?

    Yeah, you know I use to think that too, but with the onslaught of surveillance, tracking, picture taking etc etc etc that goes on, mostly voluntarily, what's the use...

    You drive on the toll road, IPASS tracks you, you take the Bus, the Bus pass doohickey tracks you, you bring your phone along that tracks you, you get on the internet that tracks you, you drive on the road, city camera's track you, you buy groceries and wanna save 20 to 50 bucks on average, the grocery store tracks you, you put your money in a bank they track you, you put your money in a credit union they track you, you use a currency exchange they track you it's all over man....they're everywhere they're EVERYWHERE!!!!!

    Actually it depends on what I am doing. For Hotels, rented cars etc the card has so many benefits and savings that I would be crazy to use cash. In everyday life around the village I would be crazy to try to use my card.
