A new survey finds Americans under 30 prefer plastic over cash.
According to the survey by CreditCards.com, 51-percent of consumers under 30 use debit or credit cards for nearly all purchases even those under $5. That compares to 77-percent of Americans 50 or older who prefer cash for purchases under $5.
When it comes to choosing plastic, cardholders of all ages prefer debit over credit by a 2-to-1 margin.
