Plastic is almost always backed by a major credit card corporation, so the vendor is always guaranteed to get paid no matter what.

No risk of someone writing a rubber check, or passing of counterfeit bills.

Plus the whole deal about making change. Even if the register tells them the amount to give back, the kids don't retain the knowledge of how to make change.

Plus it's all too tempting to skim off the register with things being so tight for everyone financially.

There is an old restaurant in town that only accepts cash. It's been said John Wayne broke up a fight out side this place years ago. The old guy that owns the place will never turn away someone with no money for a meal.Stan

Didn't you ever see the sign that said "In God we trust. All others pay cash"? LOL

No federal law is broken. In MA, yes but no where else fed or state.

If they don't accept cash then how do they pay their undocumented workers who get robbed on the way home from work? And they don't dare report it because they are illegal!

Here in the frozen north, our Federal Government Passport Office will not accept cash. The government prints the stuff by the bushel, yet they will not accept it in their own departments.
A few years back, our local trash commission decided that they would not take cash at the landfill site. I protested this, and was publicly shot down in flames by a councilor. After six months of bum cheques and ditches filling up with old mattresses and chemical jugs, the commission re-thought it's position and decided cash was okay.
Not to hijack this thread, but we are now being told by governments federal, provincial, and local, that we can only access certain services if we go ON-LINE! If people protest that they don't have a computer, they are very snottily told they will have to go to the library, or have a friend do it for them. I'm beginning to know how my Grandma felt when she was continually told that she HAD to get a telephone! unc

My wife and daughter eat at Lambert's in Ozark, MO. She pays by check. No problem.

Pretty easy solution- if they say they won't take cash, just lay the proper amount on the counter and walk out. They'll figure out some way to cope with it. If they call the cops, the cops will have a good laugh about it.

Little different story if they have signs all over the place about not taking cash- then its on you, and you need to either find a way to make it work, or find another place (and be sure to tell the proprietor why you're going elsewhere).

I do think that if I was trying to run a business in one of your rougher areas of large cities, I'd be cards only, too- with signs all over to that effect. The biggest obstacle to businesses in those areas is that they get robbed about 3 times a night. Notice the liquor stores are all fortresses.

I don't know if they would take a check from 350 miles away. My son lives there and could have paid but I was glad I had the cash.

Saw the sign but didn't know they meant it. And if God did walk in they would probably want cash from him too. LOL

I agree. One of the most foolish comments I ever heard was that I "MUST" take credit cards to be competitive in business. That is absolute nonsense and it was a fella here who said it. I have never taken cards and never will. Giving away 3% of my gross to a bank is one reason. Having my sales tracked by said bank and reported, by month, to the federal government would be another reason. Not supporting a system that creates inflation, damages families financially and steals your freedom of choice would be another. I could go on...

Local small town chicken and pizza and bar place only takes checks and cash, no plastic.

There is nothing else in town population is under 100 but they added a second ball diamond and get a few more people from a distance passing through now for ball tournaments.

He finally broke down and put in an ATM machine, but still doesn't take plastic.

Couple years ago a couple from California passed through, had no cash. Could not believe he would have taken a check from out of state. They wondered what to do, said mail a check or cash when you get home. They were very (pleasantly) dumbfounded by all that, hadn't seen such a thing in their travels.
