Australians top card use ranking

A survey of seven countries by Citibank has found that Australians rank lowest in terms of card ownership with an average of 2.1 cards per person. However we top the table for frequency of use as we reach for our cards an average 5.4 times a week. These figures compare with South Koreans who top the number of card rankings with 3.05 cards per person but place second behind us on the frequency of use count, accessing their cards only 5 times a week. 12 per cent of respondents admitted that they used their card more than 11 times per week and a further 3.5 per cent use their cards more than 20 times per week.
