Are you still using?

March 20, 2014

I hope Cyclone Lusi didn’t do too much damage where you are (if you’re in NZ or the Pacific Islands). I had a wonderful weekend with 3 of my greatest friends staying for the weekend! Such wonderful fun, with lots of good food and wine thrown in for good measure! 1912198_519433521498949_479782641_n

As you know I am a great advocate of using debit cards, not credit cards and it was great to see that NZ is listening!  Statistics for card use in February in NZ showed that 54.1% of it was on debit cards with the remainder on credit cards. That was on 108 million transactions worth an average of $53!! I still find those numbers mind boggling, don’t you?

“The value of electronic card spending on retail rose 0.9% to a seasonally adjusted $.58 billion in February, according to Statistics New Zealand.” (NZ Herald, March 11, 2014)

Are you still using a credit card or debit card?  Go to my Facebook page ( see the link below) and answer the poll. Get your friends and and family to participate too.

Have a great week  and as always I value your feedback.
