I mainly use my debit card and occasional credit card. I also use my phone sometimes to pay. My boyfriend uses his phone most of the time and always makes sure he keeps cash. I think a person should always have some cash. I would never completely rely on my cards. I have had my cards not work at a gas station when I was empty. Luckily I had some cash. You never know..

For small purchases i like using cash. As someone who has been in retail for years, I noticed that people tend to have both cash and card. Depending on the total, they decide what to use. A lot of people younger then me would hand me cash. Many also used debit cards. Usually 20s. It really depends. As a business, I would accept both. Looking at the replies, it seems to depend on where people live.
