Cash Or Card?

February 5, 2014, 7:00 AM by Stephanie Gregory

Cash Or Card?

Either you carry cash or you don't. After the Target data breach, people like Doris Mickelson make sure she has cash with her when she hits the stores.

"I have a debit card that I use for the grocery store all the time and some purchases around town, but if I have the cash in my wallet I'll use that instead," Mickelson said.

Mickelson, a former credit card company employee, knows all too well the possible danger of swiping a card.

"It's a lot worse now than when I used to work for the credit card company. I think the hacking has just gotten ridiculous," Mickelson said.

But not everyone chooses a cash option these days. Kari Hoff, the co-owner of Fly Boy Doughnuts says she hasn't noticed much of a difference. It just depends on the day.

"Some days you see a trend that's a little bit different than others, but we get a lot of debit card purchases here," Hoff said.

As for Mickelson, she just likes to play it safe.

"I'd rather pay cash, it's safe,” Mickelson said.

In December, more than 110 million customers at Target and other major retailers had their personal information exposed during the data breach.
