Five forums is a lot, but I'll do my best~! And idk, Iggy, I remember almost topping your postcount list last time. Think you can beat me? ~_^

I just remember those stories of thieves carrying a portable terminal and tapping it on peoples' pockets, using that tech to easily steal >.>

I still love it though, it's amazing. Especially coming from Japan, where debit doesn't exist at all, wwwww
Cash-only society

whoa

I mean I think I saw a chart somewhere that indicated Cash is still majority in a lot of places but, from a U.S. perspective it just blows my mind.

Nearly every purchase I make now is electronic. My bank doesn't even have physical branches, it's completely online.

Wait, what? That seems kind of bizarre.

What if you need to withdraw cash? What if you are going out-of-country and need foreign currency? No safety deposit boxes? What methods do they use for customer service?

It works out fine, surprisingly.

Cash is easy, you withdraw from any ATM. You're reimbursed up to a certain amount of ATM fees per month, which I never hit since I almost never withdraw. Not sure about out-of-country, as I've not encountered that situation yet. I don't need a safety deposit box, though I imagine you had businesses in mind with that? Customer service is all online or over the phone and, so far, has been really positive. They can be a bit overly sensitive on fraud detection though; I fought with them for a week when I moved to Boston because they thought someone had stolen my card and that I was still back in Cleveland.
