Trading Debit Cards For Cash

Only a few short months ago, I remember thinking to myself that the days of using cash while shopping in Texas were quickly coming to an end. With every bank, big and small, offering free debit cards to their customers – the idea of not carrying around cash had almost become normal to me. Then in December, all hell broke loose when over 100-million credit and debit card numbers were stolen from Target and the news just keeps getting worse. Now there are other major retail firms finally admitting that they too allowed card information to be stolen by hackers. Could cash be making a comeback in the United States of America? It could very well just do that. Even though most folks can get their money back, if their card data is stolen. All of this computer hacking is at least going to slow the progress of the nation moving to a cash free society.
