1 reason for Cash Who? Email? Website? Δ Anonymous opinó: # 03 Jul 2011 i prefer cash over card because some shops require you to buy things over a minimum amount before you pay by card. Too much hassel and it also means i don’t go spending crazy all the time. I have a limit. If it runs out it runs out. I believe we live in a society where spending has our favourite pass time and half th thing we buy we could probably manage without, so cash, i have more control.
