Have you ever been to a retail or food service place that didn't accept cash?

I had to go to the local college today for a work related activity. I decided to get something to eat at their cafe. I use to go to this school and I would go there a couple of times a week. Today when I went I noticed that there was a sign that said "No cash accepted. Only Debit/Credit card or Student ID card". Several of my co-workers only had cash and were quite upset. I have never been to a retail or food place that didn't accept cash. Have you?

  • Was going to say no, but then you said college and I remembered yes, the JC I took classes at didn't accept cash in their cafeteria. Dumbest thing ever. Maybe they fear getting robbed? No idea.

  • Never heard of that happening. One of my favorite places in Colorado Springs is Cash Only though. They have an atm in there that has a $2.50 charge for using their machine.

  • Never heard of such. I wonder if it's a rough area and they are afraid of being robbed? Maybe?

  • I've seen places that don't accept checks, or that don't accept cards, but never any place that didn't accept cash.

  • The only time that ever happened to me was on an airplane. We couldn't buy drinks with cash, just credit cards. I thought cash was taken everywhere.
