I would first check online to see if there is any suspicious charges. Then I would call the bank and cancel–better safe than sorry. Just tell them that you just realized it was missing because if any bad charges do end up on your card you have 24 hours to let them know it’s missing or you become liable for the bad charges.

I would report it as soon as possible.  I know some banks require you to report it within 24 hours or you are liable for the charges.

Definitely.  Just call up the bank and tell them to put a hold on it while you search so that if it was lost no one can use it.

I would call the bank. You may be able to put some kind of hold on it, rather then canceling. That way you can remove the hold if/when you find it, but no one else can use it in the mean time just in case you lost it outside of your house and someone found it.

Have you called the store you last remember using it at to see if maybe you dropped it there and someone turned it in or something like that?

If you ever suspect your card of being lost/stolen, always go ahead and call it in. They should be able to do a temporary block and then if you find it, you can call them back to take off the temporary block. If you don’t find it then, they can reissue you a new card.
