Downloading photos to my computer

Usually, I use USB3 cable to download the files from my D500 to my computer rather than using a card reader, but I'm wondering if in the long run if this is the best practice. My concern is possibly breaking or bending pins in the connection to the camera from plugging and unplugging the cord so often. I've done this for years with my D7000 without an issue, but connecting and disconnecting the USB2 connection is not near as tight as the plug on the D500. What do you think, is it safer to use a card reader instead? What do you do?
