Ok so a large purchase (TV, Sofa ect) over 1k you'd pay with cash.

Yes. I don't want a cashless society. BTW, some drips pay for something as small as a pint of milk with a card instead of handing over cash. What do you think of that?

Do you really think a car dealership is going to accept £30k in cash in this day and age, as an example? Not wanting a cashless society is fine but going to the extreme of not paying for a single thing on a card is a bit silly.

 

And calling people "drips" because they dont want to fanny around with £1.30 in change for milk is a bit insulting.

Not every one has cash on them all the time. I went to Tesco the other day I spent under £5 but used my card. The cash machine wasn't working and I didn't fancy walking to another one and then back again.  Most people use a mix of card/cash. I don't know anyone who wants a cashless society and I don't think we will have one anytime soon.  No doubt you've been reading stuff on Twitter/Facebook about how 'they' want you to use card so they can control your spending.

 I think quite a few places are wary of taking very large amounts in cash now  in case it’s connected with money laundering .

I can only imagine that people who buy really small stuff on a card never check their bank statements. 

I have always checked mine and I do not want it full of crappy little transactions that mean it takes a lot longer to find anything.

Unless I am really short of cash I never pay for anything under £10 by card.

no issue with that, Home Bargains in Hillsborough never seemed to have change, i know they prefer people using cards.

 

not sure why you think people are drips for doing so, are you some kind of social kingpin on here or just another 4 star general who talks other down thinking it'll make you look big?

Honestly, Cashless is the best way to go, imagine the reduction in pollution from not printing and pressing the notes and coins alone, then shipping them to all the banks throughout the country, oh and getting the old money back and 'incinerating' old notes, or melting down the coins... causing more pollution...

Then there's all the other things surrounding physical money, such as hygiene, and 'other uses' people have for notes,  oh yeah, and forgery...

Also less chance of money being physically stolen or lost....

Society will go cashless, and it can't happen fast enough imho....

*edit* oh, there's also the 'ease of use' factor, not everyone lives close to a cash machine or carries cash on them at all times, easier just to use your card or phone as you usually have at least one of them on you.. plus, you don't have to deal with change, or 1p, 2p, 5p coins etc...

I fully agree with all you've said, but...

 

There's still a large part of society that were brought up with cash, always used cash, and still want to use it. I think we will go cashless fairly soon, soon being years. I don't have a clue how many years. There are still cheques! I got one from a car tax refund...I thought "what is this strange beast?" Then I found out my mobile bank app lets me take a picture of it, then puts the money in my account. It must be decades since I had a chequebook. Another payment method that may go.

 

I keep a bit of cash on me at all times and was just thinking when I use it. I could only think of two places, when I have my hair cut, and when I have the car washed. Other than that, it's card payments.

We need to keep using cash for every purchase. We need to shun businesses that don't accept cash and tell them that we are shunning them because they don't take cash. I reccomend the Keep Cash UK group on Facebook. There is a growing number of people wanting to protect the right to pay with cash. 

 

Small businesses also prefer cash, as everytime a card is used,the business is charged a transaction fee.  Don't be lazy, use your ATM.  There are plenty of them around Sheffield. You wouldn't give someone an "I owe you" instead of a birthday present . Give actual money when you pay for things.

Do you want to live in a tyranical country, where they can stop our access to money, track our every purchase and dictate what we do and when? Their motto is "you will own nothing and be happy".

You honestly believe you are making a stand against something by using cash? Fighting against some sort of tyranny? 

 

Plenty of businesses are card only, presumably because its more convenient for them. No cashing up at the end of each day, no taking that cash to the bank, no need for a float each day.
