Cash is no longer king. It’s dying. New figures show 80% of sales are with a debit or credit card. Debit cards are most popular - 57% of sales according to the British Retail Consortium, but this is the first time credit card use has overtaken cash.
Is this a good thing? Cards definitely come with lots of benefits, but so do cards. So should we be worried about a cashless society? in this episode of the award-winning Cash Chats podcast, Andy has taken a look at the pros and cons of both cards and cash.
Plus news about why your contactless payments could be rejected, and a brief round-up of what to do if you have a Thomas Cook holiday.
Cash Chats is presented by money blogger and broadcaster Andy Webb.
