Hugh recently chatted with Matt Johnson of The New Daily to discuss poor money habits.
Centaur Financial Services adviser Hugh Robertson said shoppers with lots of debt, or a track record of poor money habits, would do well to steer clear.
“Spending money is like an addiction,” Mr Robertson told The New Daily.
“Yes, avoiding tap and go will cost you in convenience, but it’s better for payments to be a little less convenient than you being a little more broke.
“If you opt for tap and go, before you pay for anything, log into your account and check the balance.
“And also double check the price of what you’re paying for, because it’s easier to assume that it’s automatically correct, and you run the risk of double tapping or getting overcharged.”
