What is the best way to spend less money in Thailand?

Don't drink alcohol. Beer in particular is expensive when compared to the price of food. Other options include travelling in 3rd class trains and 2nd class fan buses. Spend most of your time upcountry and you'll also spend less, as prices are generally cheaper than in the big cities

Yes. You'll be expected to leave your passport, or a copy of your passport, in return. The insurance you get with these is generally not worth the paper it is written on.

Yes, but not everywhere. Cheap to medium-priced guesthouses and most cheap restaurants will not accept credit cards. Pretty much everywhere else does.
