A lady should never reveal what’s in her purse, but I feel like we’re close enough. So here!
*topples bag upside down, shake shake shake*
I prefer having cards, I like using them more than cash. I don’t like to carry a lot of cash because somehow whenever I have cash, I seem to finish them very quickly. Which is frustrating. So credit cards are the way to go.
Some people misuse their credit limits and go wayyyy overboard, but so far so good for me. I’ve never been one to go super duper crazy. I keep all the bank texts I receive after each swipe, so I know what I’ve spent on and I keep track of it.
Anyway, the above paragraph is all the lies I tell Dean of course. I’m a girl after all. Sales and discounts? Emergency category, of course! Haha. But in all seriousness, spending is ok but let’s all remind each other not too go TOO overboard. Debit cards are a much safer route to financial control.
I always tell Dean I like to swipe more than give cash, because cardholders always get something back. Points, miles, cash back, and awesome promotions that banks hold from time to time.
Like this Bank Rakyat campaign happening now in conjunction of the brand new year!
By being a Bank Rakyat credit-i cards or debit-i cards holder and using them in their purchase, you will stand a chance to win one of the 60 Mini iPads by:
1) Spending at least RM100 in a single receipt
2) Transaction to be done by 15th April 2015
More info on the campaign can be found here:
So if you own a Bank Rakyat card, start using it more often until 15th April 2015! If you don’t own one yet, you can download the application forms here.
Happy swiping (responsibly, of course)!
