Debit cards can be used many places. A debit card is basically an electronic form of a check. When one deposits money into his/her checking account, this increases the amount in that account. In order to purchases goods and/or services, the debit card may be used. This will decrease the amount in that checking account. Most places that accept credit cards as a form of payment, will accept debit cards as well. If not, the debit card may be used at an ATM to retrieve cash.

The difference between a credit and debit card is that debit cards traditionally do not affect your credit rating, whereas credit cards do.
