Here's the deal.... if you only have a certain amount of cash and you already paid tips, all the cash you on your card is yours and not already accounted for.
For example... we will probably put a total of $400 on sign & sail cash. If I don't prepay my tips, $140 is already spoken for.
I just like to know the money I put on is the amount I can spend. (or not)
As far as debit card goes.... since they put a hold on it and I have to leave on vacation knowing I have scheduled bills to pay it works better this time to use cash.
It's easier to save for me, if put down a little at a time instead of trying to take a chunk out of 1 or 2 paychecks.
no worries for me and I say whatever works best for you that's the way you should go.
