Going out for lunch next week with some former guys from work, thought I'd check out the place on line and see what others had to say. Sounds good but in the info posted by the restaurant, it was noted that they accepted cash. I guess that's news nowadays, not sure. I've never seen that before. When we do go out, the other 3 all pay with debit cards (like maybe a $15 hit), I always pay with cash but obviously I'm a bit out of date. Well, I'm glad they take cash, that's a bonus. Do you think there might be places that don't accept cash anymore?

A local butcher shop is running a special on a pork package. The website they have as a link has no provision to pay cash or check, just ebt or debit/credit. I emailed and asked if they took cash....no reply.

I went to a local appliance store a year or so ago and picked out a stove and dishwasher. They would not take cash and I didn't have my checkbook or credit card. They just told me to give the man a check when he delivered the items. Strange way to do business.

Yes, the number of businesses refusing cash is on the rise.

Especially restaurants. So few customers use cash, it has become a liability for them to have to keep change, hire and train employees to make change, and be responsible for the register.

And I can see why the appliance store doesn't want cash. Too much danger of robbery, both at the store, and the person that has to carry it to the bank.

Has the phrase "This note is legal tender for all debts public and private" lost its meaning as well as some basic parts of the Constitution? TDF

Anything's possible now a day's, but if there is one that doesn't accept cash they are breaking the law. (read the fine print on any bill in your wallet)

I use cash for small stuff, under $15 or so. Above that it varies. Credit cards are best for larger stuff, like trailers and online purchases. I once tried to buy a truck on a CC, and they wouldn't take it.
The issue is the fees, which are atrocious. Between the swipe fee and the percentage, merchants can actually lose money on a small transaction. And if you buy a $13,000 truck on a CC, at 3% or so, the merchant takes a big hit as well.
All that balances against theft, robbery, mistakes, etc.
It's all in the balance.

I can see a valid reason for it. Plastic only payments comes because of attrition, employees with sticky fingers or employees making mistakes giving back change. In high crime areas, no cash in the register might deter thefts.

Have you noticed that often a "news" story involving drugs or weapons will mention a large amount of cash? What's illegal about having a large amount of cash? This is an insidious effort to criminalize cash. I heard, fairly recently, that the maximum bank transaction using cash(without being reported to the feds) had dropped from $10000, to $5000.

It's another way to keep track of every thing you do.

I was at a restaurant on Long Island in New York last August. They would only take cash no checks or plastic. The place was packed , food was great.

Took the family to eat at Lambert's (Home of the throwed roll) in Springfield, MO a while back. Pulled out my credit card to pay - they only take cash. Glad I had put a couple hundred in my wallet before leaving home or I'd probably still be washing dishes.

I guess if I was at a restaurant where they told me after I was done eating,that they didn't take cash,I'd be doing dishes or they'd be giving me a free meal.
