    Yes. Closing the account would limit them a tad though.

    Do you have online banking and a cheque book ? If so cancelling the Debit Card will only restrict your means of paying for anything.
    Never pay on an estimated bill

    You will still get paid but won't be able to spend any money via a debit card. Although existing recurring payments may still be debited.
