Oh, your right. I've never thought about it but all my cards can be used as debit so I've never thought about it before.

Arco doesn''t take credit.  There are a lot of places that choose not to pay the fees the companies charge, usually small places.

 some food places dont and some small dollar stores. They dont like that by accepting credit cards they cant get over on their taxes.

Our aldi started not taking them, but when they saw they where losing customers they started taking them (and they have a min.)

We have a store called Marc's here that is only cash or check. It's a closeout type place but also has regular groceries, deli, frozen, etc.

There's also a small grocery called Reiders Market and they take cards but if you pay cash you get a 3% discount.

I shop at Aldis and they do take Visa debit cards, I no longer own any credit cards so this does not affect me at all. I LOVE aldis I save so much there for my area ,, its for the most part cheaper than walmart for the items I get
