Safe at Home

I finally learned to not link recurring charges to any credit card that I also carry around with me.  If the company or service allows links directly to checking accounts, I’ve always gone for that.  But some just want cards.

After I-don’t-know-how-many cards have been lost or stolen or compromised (OK it’s usually lost), I finally figured out that I need to have one account (DCU lets you create many) with a card that is used JUST for these transactions.  A card that stays home.  Safe.  Sound.  In the drawer.
