Paying with cash over bank card to save you overspending

Posted on October 18, 2017 at 9:27 am

Many shoppers are finding that they overspend at the shops when they use their bank card to pay compared to paying with cash. With modern technology making it even easier to pay using your bank card at shops, you don’t even need to enter your pin, a simple tap of your card and it is all done for you.

With this ease of paying, shoppers find it hard to keep track of what they have spent during their shopping trip. One way to avoid overspending is to withdraw the amount of money you intend to spend and only pay for items with that cash. That way you will know when you are close to your limit and will be able to make better decisions on what you want to spend your cash on.

Just remember to keep enough cash aside to pay for your journey home, or you may end up stranded in the shopping centre until someone can come and pick you up.
