Steam wallet, Paypal or Credit Card?

Which one do you prefer to use for purchasing of your games and why? For those with steam wallet, what do you do with the left over few cents?

I use Steam Wallet.

If you have a little cents left over you can use the cents for your next purchase with a CC or Paypal so you can have it go away.

I use cash for Steam Wallet cards from my local Gamestop. Leftover money sits until I add more funds.

I'm somewhat paranoid about giving steam my credit card info (steam was hacked last year, and I don't see why they couldn't be again)

I use steam wallet cards and, if I can't get to a gamestop, regular ol' visa gift cards.

I use all 3. It depends what I have money/access too.

Creditcard or Paypal, depends on the situation.

I use the Steam Wallet, mainly because when those super-sales come around (like during summer), I make too many purchases on my credit card, and then it starts to get declined. I was hesitant at first, 'cause I never thought I'd keep buying games. But then I realized that I'm never going to stop, so I'm happy with some cents lying around on my Steam Wallet.

I use my debit card usually, but I occasionally use the Steam Wallet.

I did not know this. I avoided the Steam wallet feature because I didn't want like 1 cent left over from buying a, lets say, $9.99 game and having $10 in the wallet.

Lol, yeah I figured it out one day when using a Visa Debit gift card, I had like $1 left over and I checked out with my Steam wallet in a certain way and put in the gift card and it took the $1 off.

Pretty nice feature.

If my currency is high I add money to the wallet, if it's low I use creditcard if there is none left in my wallet. That way I make a slight advantage from a good exchange rate. I hope to drop in $400 before xmas. at $108 and above to $1 US so I will have to pay only $366 for $400 and then get games only at 75% off or more to a max of $12.50 so I'm looking at maybe 200 games, unless I go silly like last year.

Credit Card

It stops that horrible moment when you have $0.01 in your wallet or PayPal.
