    That’s a lot of uninformed (ignorant) people.

    I’ve been on the fence thinking of switching to tangerine from TD since TD Visa debit cards don’t work for android pay.

    I still use cash. A lot of shops i frequent save cost by being cash-only. Also it’s more private and flexible. That said I use NFC card a lot. My brother got a new credit card just because it supported apple pay, I wouldn’t go that far but I’m open to it. Never completely giving up cash though.

    Cash can still be accepted with the power out. To just abandon cash completely wouldn’t be very smart.

    I basically pay for anything that’s 20 bucks or less with cash and big purchases with debit. I find cash to be much more convenient when buying a single beverage or pack of gum etc. Plus our reliance on electronic payments has raised prices to offset the merchant fees a retailer has to pay for accepting credit or debit.

    Cash is here to stay; people use it to cheat on TAXES.
