Even though I know CC can be used here, I also use cash only for every transaction. I withdraw funds as needed at PBI or BDO ATMs so the only time my Debit Card is out of my sight is when it is in the ATM and I am the only one to handle it. I have my SS & pension funds direct deposited in both Wells Fargo Bank and USAA Bank in the states. I have a Debit Card from each bank, but only keep 1 Credit Card for any possible future emergency. They are both aware that I live in the Philippines and only use a mail forwarder in the states, both as a mailing & billing address. When a card expires, they send a new one to my mail forwarder and then I have it sent to me here. Upon receipt of the new card, I activate it online a their website.

Works for me, may not be suitable for others.
