I follow the same idea.  Heck, Discover gives us 1% back (little I know
but it adds up if you purchase everything on it.)
In addition.. I don't know where your errors are coming from but I have
never had the bank make a mistake before other than a service fee which
I caught and they refunded.  Just because you don't type the
transactions in doesn't mean you don't review them.
