Until last week I could deny the last one but.... now I do have all those things.
Debit card is actually a check/credit card and we use the credit card portion.
There is no way WE could Full time without the online banking.
E-File the taxes = quicker refund for money to spend on the Airstream
Smart phone = apps that help me find stuff when I'm out in the third new town this month.

All of the above and have done for years. Indeed, the UK is some years ahead of North America in these things so it came as a bit of a shock that not everything I used to do on-line there was available in Canada when I arrived. I'm happy to say that mostly it has caught up in the last three years.

E-filing taxes is brilliant (given that you can't avoid them anyway) and we had our refund in our account in six working days this year, and went on line to check two days before the paper notification arrived in the mail.

Privacy is an illusion, as others have said; people have been collecting information about you constantly for decades now. I go with the flow and exploit the advantages rather than worry about what a bank knows about me and my habits; frankly I couldn't care less anyway.

I rarely carry cash, either, there seems to be little need of it these days.

I only get upset when I can't do things on line, like use my Canadian credit card in a US gas pump because it demands a US zip code. I have to go into the booth, swipe the card there and come back out to fill up. They don't do any special checks in the booth so I'm at a loss to see why they bother with that limitation. Ho hum.

You'd probably get more technophobes if you weren't on an online community asking the question I'll bet at your average WBCCI rally you'd find lots of folks who get by fine without those things! Personally, I like technology. Anything that makes life more convenient means I can be more productive and spend what little time off I have actually enjoying myself. Who wants to spend it at the bank talking to a teller?

Do you?

I once saw a quote on the internet: "No one under the age of 30 writes checks anyway." I think this is very true - I'm over 30, and I only write one check every month, and that's for a bill whose online-bill-payment setup is terrible. Otherwise everything is paid online; some are even auto-debited from the account.
I don't think I've written a check in 20 years. My wife says she's written three, one for the Tundra, one for her Subaru, and the other for the AS. And both the Toyota and the Subaru dealers took my Amex card for the first $10,000 (love them reward points). Since I retired to do very little that requires literacy. I got into the habit of online banking and bill paying when I used to travel a lot on business. Now I travel a lot for pleasure and don' see any advantage in regressing back to the old pen and paper days. I don't read paper books or newspapers either, my iPad carries those around for me. No ink on my fingers. Ain't the 21st century great?

Hi, my cash wasn't that heavy. Credit cards paid for gas, camping, tires, repairs, and for Princess Georgette. Cash for food and fun.
