I used to pay cash to buy something as a kid, but now I don't even bring cash with me when shopping because paying with a credit card is much easier. These days, credit card companies use promotions to appeal to customers. For example, if you spent a certain amount of money this year with the credit card, they will provide you something as a reward. You can even add your credit card to you smart phone and pay by simply touching your phone to the card reader. Some of the local restaurant owners in my town refused credit card purchase which is illegal. They prefer cash for some reasons. I wouldn't go deep into that because I don't want my writing to be too political or too serious.

Excellent draft, my corrections are very minor. I guess small businesses have to wait for card funds and it costs a few percent in fees. Perhaps it's legal for them to offer cash customer's a small discount instead of refusing credit cards?

When I was a child, I used cash to pay for everything, but nowadays I don't even bring cash with me when I go shopping because paying with a credit card is much easier. Credit card companies today use promotions to draw in more customers. For example, if you spend a certain amount of money during the year with their credit card, the company will give you some sort of gift or reward. You can even add your credit card to your smart phone and pay simply by touching your phone to the card reader. Some of the local restaurant owners in my town refuse credit card purchase, which is illegal. They prefer cash. I won’t elaborate on the reasons for this because I don't want my writing to be too political or serious.
Hi Polly (I love your name btw! 🤗) Very good writing here. You organised your main points well and used paragraphs to separate them. Have a look at my corrections to see a few different word/phrasing choices you could have made. There wasn’t that much to correct though. Good work, keep it up 💪🏻
