I normally carry cash for small purchases like that.
I do not let my card leave my eye sight when someone else has it (store clerk, etc..)

I always pay cash at clubs, diners, coffee shops.

Debit card. I only carry about $10 or $15 in cash.

I pay with a credit card for everything, even purchases that are a couple of dollars, because of rewards.

Stupid logic though since credit card fees raise consumer goods.

yep, same here.

Here is another thing I do though. If I am asked "credit or debit", how I run it depends on the amount. Since credit cards charge 3% and debit cards charge $0.50 per transaction, if it's $15 or less I'll run it as a credit card (= $0.45), if it's more than $15 it gets debited.

I also always run it as a credit card when filling up with gas. When filling up, if you use it as a debit card, the bank will hold out $75 until the actual charge comes in. If you run it as a credit card they will only hold out $1, and some weeks, than makes all the difference.
