    especially when we are talking about big ones like Target? If you as a small merchant refuse to accept some or all credit cards or have a minimum purchase requirement to use them, sure, I'll find another way to pay you.

    •  I use my a/e costco business card only at costco (3+ / 0-)

      and big box chains. I pay cash at mom and pops. I've got the vast majority of my regular customers paying by check now. What kills me is when somebody comes in and buys 2-3 bucks of stuff and flips out a card. It's .35 off the top and the % after that. I might as well just give them the merchandise.
