Cash-is-Cool:
Our Reason For Being

Cash is under threat across our planet.

Card schemes hate cash, as they can only wring profit from their debt-creating plastic products.

Visa and MasterCard have both made clear that cash is their enemy. Since 90% of all purchases on our planet are made using cash, this enemy of the card schemes must be the trusty friend of humanity.

Cash-is-Cool is working tirelessly to defend cash from predatory card schemes.
