Funny thing just happened today. I just tried to use my newly activated
Visa Platinum credit card(5899 9566 1248 7689) to make an online purchase.
They wanted to debit my checking account using an electronic check instead.
I’m not giving out my checking account number to anyone!
Vendors now seem to be shying away from accepting debit/credit cards
They say it costs too much and there are too many disputes from customers!
Then just yesterday I tried to buy a dog at the pound. They only took cash
or Discover no Visa or Master card.
With this new trend, what’s the out look for the future for MA & V???
Is it not a fact the the majority of well-to-do people own and use American Express? I believe they focus their credit card toward the wealthy, so it would make sense that would be all Neimen Marcus would take. It's a saftey measure to keep the riff-raff out.
I stay at Marriots all the time. They are more than happy to accept my visa and master card for gaurantee and authorization. I never had that problem.
Business doesn't accept visa and/or master card means no business.
A gasoline chain in Florida gives a nickle a gallon discount for cash. In the beginning (1964) most items were priced two ways... cash or Credit card. I wonder if we'll see that trend again. I doubt it cause cards are just to good of a tracking system for the average user. Plus the protection.The only card I have had questioned or refused was AMEX at a small retailer. US and Eoripe.
stop crying in your doggy dish
Call Marriott 1800 845 4226 THEY DO NOT ACCEPT DEBIT/CREDIT CARD They ask you for you routing# and your check account#. You're probably too young to know what that means....
oh really - i am in SLC home of Marriott - staying at the Marriott downtown Salt Lake City - someone for got to send them the memo cuz they took my AMEX and I have used my Visa debit/credit card there before. Also used it in NYC (ever hear of that place) You must be too old to understand what a credit card is - I suggest you call Western Union or go get some Travelers Cheque's.
Late (p.s. - say hi to Wilbur and Orvell)
LIAR!! This is not a concern, and will never happen. Internet e-commerce will never, ever, go directly to the bank for cash, as it opens too many vulnerabilities. THINK Security! Stop posting this BS>!
