    I only ever take out cash if Im going on a night out to the pub so on the rare occasion that I do probably about £100 otherwise I just use switch or visa.

    I nearly always get £50 out a week, which I use to pay for snacks, my round of beer every other friday, and petrol.

    I hate paying for petrol with a card, as I know far too many people who have had their cards cloned at petrol stations, usually due to the high turn over of staff.

    No, I am not perfect, but yes I do judge people on their use of basic English language. If you didn't know the above, then learn it! (If English is your second language, then you are forgiven!)

    Since I got ripped off by an ATM in Stansted six years ago, I've stopped using them.

    I can't understand why people bother taking out less than £50 from a cash machine.

    1. Because they only need less than £50.

    2. Because they only have less than £50.

    I use my cards for nearly everything so only withdraw the odd £10 or £20 here and there, as and when it is needed.

    errrmmm usually around 60-70 pounds per week! Depends what I'm doing of course, but that's a fair average!

    a tenner as I am skint all the time and I make it last!! All bills done by DD and food shopping done once a fortnight on my debit card, again I make it last by having a menu plan. The tenner is for odds and sods like runnning out of milk, stamps, bits and bobs like that. Back at work soon so hopefully will not be finding things so tight.

    Voted N as I've never used a cash machine to take money out, only to pay it in.

    I do all my banking and bills online, and use my debit card for spending so very rarely use a cash mahine these days. If I use it it's usually to pay for something specific so the amount will vary
