Boycott WINCO!!

OMG!! I am BEYOND pissed!! I used to love Winco stores. I was going 2-3x a week as it is the closest store to home and very reasonably priced mostof the time..

So today I went, spent 45 minutes shopping. I had about $60 worth of grocerie, get to the checkout and wait about 10 minutes in line...

Just to be told they CAN'T TAKE MY CHECK @@ WTF???

The reason? I wrote a check within 24 hours....so it fukking makes me a criminal because I wrote a check?? Yeah, I was in last night, I bought stuff for my son's Boy Scout Troop...a whole $20 check.

BECAUSE of that, I can't write a check for $60 for my kid's food for the week???

I am NO LONGER shopping there if they are going to treat me like a criminal because I refuse to use a bank card!!! I've haad THREE different cards have fraud and be compromised in the last year so I stopped using a debit..  Now I'm treated like some ghetto criminal.

I even suggested that I would wait while they called my bank..."No, we no longer do that."  HELLO!! They did it a MONTH ago when I wrote  a $300 check because "That is over our daily limit, it is our policy to call the bank."

YOU BET I am calling Monday and talking to the store director AND calling corporate on Monday as well.

Rat bastards!

Do not know what to say, no stores around here take cheques anymore.   It is cash, interact, or credit card.

Use cash. A lot of places are sick of bounced checks.

It is just TOTAL BULLSHIT!!! They don't have it posted "Sorry, we can't take a check until your last one cleared."

The manager that came t italk to me said it was usually within 24 hours to clear but as much as 48 hours. So SHIT!! I'm thre 2-3 times a week and it has NEVER been an issue!!!  How the fuk do I know if I wait 24 hours, missed something and have to go back, that it would even be clear then???

Went from my fave store to boycotting in 5 minutes!

Never heard of Winco.
