American Express - Merchants Keep Refusing To Accept This Card
I recently accepted an offer for an AMEX Card. Zero interest for 6 months, 2% cash back, no annual fee and a $55.00 credit after the first purchase. I prefer to use only one C. C. so I only have one payment each month. This also helps me to keep track of my spending instead of spreading it over multiple cards.
Shortly after receiving my new card I took my wife out to a nice restaurant for dinner. When I used the card to pay the check it was denied. The manager was very apologetic and explained due to the high merchant fees they don't accept it. Had to use my zero balance Visa card for payment.
After this three other merchants also denied the card for the same reason. AMEX gave me a $20K credit limit on a card that is difficult and embarrasssing to use. I'm done with this card and switched back to Visa.
