Do you guys (in north America) have much in the way of eft-pos (electroic funds transfer - place of sales, not credit) cards there?

How big is cash still in America?

sounds like you're referring to check cards aka atm cards aka debit cards, like previous poster said, draw directly from bank accounts. everyone that has a bank account has one, but personally i only use my credit card because i don't have to worry about overdrawing my account and i have a really good interest rate.

most of the time i don't even carry cash cuz cards are so much easier and so i don't have to lie when a bum asks me for change. half those fucks are liars anyway.
