5 Smart Life Hacks Your Debit Card Can Do

September 29, 2017





Who says that the only good thing a debit card can do is just withdraw money from an ATM? There are plenty of other possibilities that a debit card can do, which can actually help you live your life to its fullest potential.

You don’t have to keep settling for relying merely on the cash you have in your wallet to get what you want because, with a debit card, you can find better ways to get them. With a debit card of your own, you can instantly purchase from that online flash sale or airline seat sale you found — and get tons of perks as a result, too!

If you’re still unconvinced, here are just a few things you can do with only a debit card in your hand:

  1. Shop Cash-Free
    We all have our irrational fear of feeling like our wallet has become a tad skinny or lightweight. With a debit card, a skinny wallet is the welcome change you need! With your money stored in your debit card, retail shopping and dining out have become hassle-free and risk-free because you don’t have to carry around huge amounts of cash for your financial transactions anymore.

  2. See the World
    Yes, you can also use your debit card to easily book flights, accommodations, and tickets to your dream destinations, events, concerts and festivals, online. So if you’re itching to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and go on a quick vacation abroad to rest, to attend an interesting conference that would help you get a jumpstart on your career, or to catch your favorite band’s concert in a nearby country, don’t hesitate to book that ticket out of here. Get ready to pack your bags and go!

  3. Travel Light, Travel Free
    Are you the type who prefers bringing US dollars when traveling abroad? Then you know that it can be quite difficult to get a hold of dollars in cash especially when money changers are challenging to find. Now, you don’t ever have to worry if you’re short in cash abroad. You can withdraw directly from any foreign ATM and instantly get cash in local currency. Say goodbye to a bulky travel wallet and enjoy secure, cashless shopping around the world!

  4. Find What You Want Online
    Having a debit card makes it possible for you to conveniently shop for everything you want and need, right at the comfort of your own home. That hard-to-find item you spotted online could be yours in a matter of minutes. What’s more amazing is that you can score discounts, cash backs, and other perks with every purchase. Don’t miss out on those online flash sales ever again!

  5. Stay on Top of Your Spending
    You might ask yourself, “Shopping becomes easier and hassle-free with a debit card, but won’t it turn me into a shopaholic?” The answer is: NO! Luckily, with online banking, you can easily track your account and your card transactions. All you have to do is enroll your debit card so you can always keep your expenses in check. Now, you can stay confident to use your money on your own terms and know that you won’t overspend or be in debt. Yes, that's right! You definitely have a choice on your own money. With endless possibilities, start living the life you've always dreamed of.
