Here’s another money story, this time from Class 3P. Read it, take the quiz afterwards, read more!
My Debit Card
When I first got my ATM/debit card, I tried to use it many times, but I was very scared because I had no experience in this method of paying with a card. I went to the Rite Aid Pharmacy. I was ready to pay for my things and I was waiting for my turn, but when I had to use my debit card I didn’t know how to swipe my card. But the cashier helped me and was patient with me. Then she asked me, “Would you like cash back?” I didn’t understand but I said “Yes’’ and she gave me forty dollars and my things. I was so happy that she gave me money.
When I was at home, I told my husband and he said the money was not free. It was from my checking account. It was a big surprise for me. I was confused. I thought I wouldn’t use my card again. Then every time I went shopping I always paid with cash, but one time I didn’t have the amount in cash, so I had to use my debit card again. After that I continued to use my card.
