Supposedly, saying a minimum payment (say $10 for example) is required to use a CC isn't "legal" either, yet I see stores with signs to that effect all the time. I doubt the CC companies care all that much.

I have forced many stores to change their practice, and know of 3 stores that lost ability to take cc because they refuse. Yes credit card company care about the violation.

I haven't seen signs like that $10 minimum in years in Hawaii. Even small stores allow you to use a credit card for any purchase.

You do realize each store have a manager that decide how stuff works, right? My store near my house no longer will refuse sale if you don't show id. Your store might still be doing it differently

Just want to make sure I've got this straight:

It's your contention that you forced Lowe's to change their credit card practices?
And that there are three stores which lost the ability to accept credit cards due to actions on your part, yet you're unable to recall the names of those stores.

Is that correct?

Yes i forced lowes to change practice by filling complain with bbb. As those 3 stores, they are to small to memorize the names and all of them are food service stores

edit:Another member that goes by remove i believe also forced lowes to change their practice

Re: Sneaker store required to scan drivers license for returns!

I've filed the same complaint form against stores here, and where I grew up on the Mainland, for pulling the minimum purchase thing or for insisting on seeing my driver's license when I used to sign the card and not put "see photo ID" on it. I also filed a complaint with American Express about several stores on the Mainland that would not take a $20 American Express Traveler's check (but that is a different situation).

I don't recall the name of the stores on the mainland. As for ones here, yeah, they had to change their practice so did at least one of the ones on the Mainland that would not take a $20 Amex travelers check (as they took them happily next time was there) and I had photo ID with me (two photo ID's). Those incidences were maybe ten years ago not recently. I also got Macy's to accept Macy's cards where the customer does not sign the card but instead puts "See Photo ID" on the back of the card.

As far as Lowe's, I think their practice is what every store should do. I don't frequent businesses that do not ask for photo ID. The credit card I have been using the most (until recently) has my photo on it but I still always provide my driver's license also (look - no touch). If you don't want to show your driver's license then get a state I.D. card and show that or show another credit card that has your photo.

Why's that? they both have the same amount of info on the magstrip other than id is not valid for operation of motor vehicles.

I don't know about where YOU live, but that is incorrect in New York.

PHOTO LICENSES AND ID CARDS
»www.nydmv.state.ny.us/broch/c-33 ··· c-33.htm

"If you do not drive, you may qualify for a Non-Driver Photo Identification Card from the Department of Motor Vehicles. The DMV Non-Driver ID Card has the same personal identification information, photo, signature and special safeguards against alterations as a photo driver license. You cannot hold a New York State driver license or learner permit while also holding a non-driver ID card."

It is the same in Pennsylvania. The only difference between a drivers license and state issued ID card is one says drivers license and the other says identification card. Other than that they are identical in every way.

not all issuing banks care.

And if you don't like the policy of the company you are free NOT to shop there.

And YOU did not force many stores to change their practices. You simply helped and probably had more complaints than yours and probably far worse ones.

And know stores that are not able to take a credit card because they refuse? LOL Sign up with a new Merchant company. Discover and American Express are the only ones that deal direct with the stores.
