Cash seems to quickly becoming a thing of the past. More and more people swipe their cards for every day purchases. But experts say, pretty soon, even those could look different.
John Cokl is a busy person. From traveling, to buying food, to filling up, his payment method of choice is credit cards.
"It's extra protection. If my wallet gets stolen I can just cancel my credit cards instead of canceling cash," explained Cokl.
