I've come across of this article at Yahoo where it talks about the places where we shouldn't be using our debit cards. http://finance.yahoo.com/banking-bu...o-use-your-debit-card?mod=bb-checking_savings 1. Online 2. Big-Ticket Items 3. Deposit Required 4. Restaurants 5. You're a New Customer 6. Buy Now, Take Delivery Later 7. Recurring Payments 8. Future Travel 9. Gas Stations and Hotels 10. Checkouts or ATMs That Look 'Off' Funny because after reading it, I was wondering what was left? There isn't anyplace to use the debit card then. Why can't we just have safeguards in place for the debit card then?
