10 Items You Should Have In Preparation Of A Cashless Society

The World Of Currency IS Changing

The world is already heading towards a cashless society. China is already a digital currency society. During this pandemic, we experienced the effects of a coin shortage. Grocery stores did not have coins, there was a big emphasis on “card only” transactions. Cashless by Google definition, is characterized by the exchanged funds of cheque, debit or credit card, or electronic methods, rather than the use of cash.

Here are 10 items that will assist and accommodate your transition into cashless transaction:

  1. Debit Card, most widely used today, by Google definition, a debit card, is a card allowing the holder to transfer money electronically from their bank account when making a purchase.

A debit card can be obtained with a checking account from a financial institution such as a bank or from a fintech company such as Stash or Cash App. Accounts with the bank or fintech company source the funds of the holder, allowing the holder to transfer money electronically from their accounts when making a purchase.

2. Credit Card, also most widely used today, by Google definition, a credit is a small plastic card issued by a bank, business, etc., allowing the holder to purchase goods or services on credit.

A credit card is based on credit worthiness. Approval of a credit card can be where you are given credit by the issuing credit card company or where you fund the credit card limit with your funds. This type of credit is called a secured credit card and is usually given to those whose credit is not that good and need to rebuild their credit.

Bitcoin is a form of buy, sell, payment and exchange. It is not money. However, it can be used like money. In the United States it is not a currency. The United States government controls what is currency in the United States. Bitcoin is property. You can own it, you can buy it, you can sell it, you can use it to exchange for goods and services, you can build a hedge against the U.S. dollar with it. However, it is not money. It is not apart of the currency issued by the United States government. You don’t have an actual coin in hand to own, buy, sell, use, or exchange Bitcoin it is used digitally.

9. NFT

NFT (Non Fungible Token) is a special cryptoasset in which each token in unique. It is different than Bitcoin and dollars. Bitcoin and dollar bills are worth the exactly the same amount. NFT can be used to authenticate ownership of digital assets (e.g. digital works.)

How I Stayed Two Nights At A Hilton Garden Inn For $9.22 | Hilton Honor Points

Hotels

Hotels are varied in class, safety, and preference. I have had the opportunity to stay in a variety of hotels. Hilton Garden Inn is apart of the Hilton Brand.

How I Did It

One night, I didn’t have any place to go and asked if I could charge the laptop I was using in the lobby of a Hampton Inn that was in the area of the previous hotel I had stayed at. I ended up staying close to a month, maybe more at that particular Hampton Inn. This was also during the pandemic, executive orders for Michigan. Because I signed up that night for Hilton Honors, I accumulated points for the stays that were under my name and Honors Member number at the hotel. Needless to say, the points were enough for me to book a free twonight stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. I paid $9.22 in taxes and fees. If you are familiar with the prices at Hilton Garden Inn, some nights a hotel room can be over $100.00, like $102 -$109 dollars before taxes and fees. Points are really a benefit. Being a Hilton Honors Member is a benefit. Outside of point accumulation, you also can receive Honor Rates when available.

I booked the room online using my points and my debit card to make the reservation. It was $9.22. Once, I got to the hotel, there was a refundable incidental fee, that I also had to have authorized on my debit card. After, checking out, my final price for the room was $9.22. That is a great deal!

What Are Points?

Points are a system of value that works like money but isn’t money! You can’t redeem it for money. You can earn points from stays, flights, rideshare, etc., Depending on the brand or merchant that is giving the points determines ways you can earn the points and how you can use them. With Hilton Honors, you can earn points and you can buy points. I earned points. With every stay and for listening to calls after talking with a Hilton Honors Representative via phone.

How You Can Do It

  1. Sign up to be a Hilton Honors member.
  2. Stay at any Hilton hotel to accumulate points.
  3. Earn any of the ways listed on the Hilton Honors Website.
  4. Listen to phone calls when offered after talking to a live Hilton Honors Representative.
  5. You can also purchase points. They recently had a match points promotion going on, where if you buy a certain amount of points, they match the points.
  6. You can also take surveys when offered to you to earn Hilton Honors points.
  7. Once you accumulate enough points, find a Hilton Garden Inn or any Hilton Hotel that you would like to stay at and book it!
