Rarely do I pay for anything with a debit card and on occasion do use cash. I primarily charge everything to my credit cards to get my rewards, points & convenience.
After the debit card changes stemming from the financial crisis back in 2010-2011, banks don't offer the rewards on them anymore leaving me to solely use my credit cards. I only use my DC to get cash and all my CC's are linked to my checking account.
Curious to hear your thoughts.
The only use I have for my debit card is ATM deposits. All monthly expenses are placed on a rewards credit card and then paid in full a few days before current statement closing date.
