Just think back 10 or 15 years. Did people use credit cards often at the grocery store or for paying bills? Nope. Some places using credit cards were unheard of like doctors' offices. You used your checkbook there, which reminds me whatever happened to those anyway? Today you can use credit cards for just about everything and these places usually prefer you do. I know a lot of parking garages are self service and they won't even accept payment with cash.
Think we'll get to the point where almost all financial transactions involve credit cards? Seems like we're heading that way. I'm not saying it's a bad thing because sure there are merchant fees but at the same time also a lot of benefits that cut costs, like no handling of cash or processing checks and paperwork. It definitely simplifies the accounting and the security is better with credit cards.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
