I carry cash around in my wallet but rarely use it, as i tend to pay with the card or use my mobile phone. And while we are at it, i think its time we got rid of 1 & 2 pence coins, i dont think there is much use for them anymore.

Cash for me

I shall have to use my card a bit more whilst on our holiday, but generally I don't use my card much apart from online purchases of course.

Card, as cash burns a hole in my pocket. Nonsensical, I know, but I feel like I spend less (I don't!) if I don't have cash on me. Tend to use cash only for takeaways, physical bookies (though that tends to be more online these days) or car wash.

Boring old fart ;-)

I'm interested in what people think about cash. I don't want us to lose the use of it that all.....

Card online (obvs) and always cash on the high street.

It is vital that we do not become a cashless society, because the greedy banks will start charging for every card transaction we make.

Also the amount of times I have been in shops and supermarkets and the digital card reader stops working and people leave without their shopping.

We are a small shop. Card transactions cost us £60/week in charges and % of transaction.
Putting cash into our business account costs us 1.5% , so putting a grand in costs us the extortionate amount of £15.
We have been putting most cash into our personal accounts, but the bank has recently sent us emails saying we can only put a certain amount in every year (received in May but started from Jan apparently.)
Thus i always pay with cash (even suppliers) and never with card in shops.
The banks are nothing but greedy robbers.

It's another form of control unfortunately... All corporations are greedy robbers

Indeed mate, you can't negotiate with a card.

HMRC might be paying attention - no disclosure from me.

It’s vital to keep cash, especially for stuff like alcohol, petrol and “unhealthy foods” which our lords and masters will no doubt seek to limit once full digital identities are imposed. “Very sorry Blanc, your purchase has been declined as you have already bought three Mars Bars and two bottles of Shiraz this month. Stay safe!”. Yes, I am deep down the rabbit hole, but we are usually right.
