Re: Cash still has some advantages

"Here in OZ TELSTRA will charge you a fee of $1 to use it to pay your bill."

Here in NZ using a debit or cash card to pay is the same price as paying cash - and credit cards often are too. We are starting to get places that refuse cash for security reasons and yes, there's also the occasional mention of a premium on cash payments due to the risk.
