For personal use I use cards or Apple Pay for gas, groceries and online purchases.

For everything else it’s cash.

This idea of “equity” needs to be resisted with vigor.

I almost never use cash. I almost never have cash to use.

Unless the place is offering a discount for cash, I’d rather collect cash back points on my card.

That’s cool.

I bought enough gas and groceries on my Alaska Air card I was able to get a free plane ticket, business class, to Cabo San Lucas.

I take off this coming Monday.

Surf forecast looks really good....

That is just a bunch of BS.

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.

I kind of like being a bit more anonymous with my cash instead of credit cards. Not too sure I want to tell the world how much I spend in bars, not buying enough vegetables at the grocery, or even being able to be tracked by gps with my phone. I really don't like my card to go out of my sight as I never trust what those little scamps in the back are up to. I have my card jacked a couple times. Never could prove who did it as I am sure they gave the digits and the numbers on the back to a friend. I know that is where my card info got out, but can't prove it.

My mom died of old age a dozen years or so ago. But I do know everything you do and transaction you make in the cyber world can be tracked by anyone with the skills and/or interest do do so. A dozen years or so ago I had a riding friend that worked in an office building with no windows that read middle eastern news papers, watched TV shows and dropped in on social media accounts. Then gave a report to the pentagon for 0700 hours briefings. Then after work he would take off for a ride. I had 4 different routes I would ride and he managed to somehow meet up with me unannounced on a way too improbable percentage of times.
Then when I turned my non smart phone off in my pocket his average went down to about 25%. When I asked him if he was tracking my phone on cell towers, he smiled and said "Maybe, but that would be illegal". That is getting a bit personal.

There is a big brother out there, but I just don't want to play all the time. Like I mentioned my CC has been jacked twice in what I think are restaurant workers grabbing and sharing digits with friends. Of course the card covered the loss but I had to go thru the hassle of getting new cards.
I think he has stopped his pop up ads, but I sort of wondered how Filson got to be on my Slowtwitch screens a while back. I am thinking about less than 1% of Slowtwitch members own a Filson clothing item. But here they were front and center on my Slowtwitch screen. Call me old school but that just ain't right.

When we used to use AMEX I also didn't care for their profiling my purchases and telling me what and how much I bought.
On a side note we are using RFID credit card sleeve for protection.

Exactly. If you're paying cash you are subsidizing everyone paying with card. We have gone card-less before just to budget, if you don't have the dough you don't buy it. I also agree about the anonymity but I'm not buying shady stuff so it's probably not a big deal. I could care less if someone knows I buy $50 of beer per week.

It's funny how cash has gone from being used for small transactions to only large ones (in my world). I've had potential clients offer to pay me in cash with a wink and a nudge for jobs of up to $50k.

not buying enough vegetables at the grocery,

Using a card for groceries doesn’t actually track what items you purchase.

But if you use the Safeway card to get your $ discounts you bet your ass they know exactly what you bought. Word that my brother. Jewel T was doing that in the 70s to see what they would put on sale to bring more folks in the next week. I worked there.

Pretty much.

Farmers Market
Lazy Acres (a small store that was Whole Foods before Whole Foods existed)
Kanaloa market (for fish)
Fisherman’s market (for lingcod)
Steak, sausage, bacon, pork from Moink
Tri County Produce
And Trader Joe’s

It really depends on what we’re getting.

Jeez now how am I going to avoid paying taxes.

Debit is the lowest cost for businesses and safer than having a lot of cash on hand

Credit card cost them the most. Fewer and fewer offer discount for cash transaction makes me wonder if credit card companies make it a condition to not allow as condition of being able to use visa services.

I think we are lemmings who are quite willingly giving up our privacy for convenience.

Perhaps the real revolutionaries are those that keep their promises.

Most just can't be bothered to switch back and forth with the cash discount. There are still quite a few vendors in the construction supply business that charge a service fee for credit cards, despite it (to my knowledge) being illegal to do so.
