Has anyone been "steered" away from Amex in a transaction?

A recent court ruling has sided with merchants who want to do so.

I had a mom and pops place that happened to take amex among the others. When I went to check out they asked if I had a different card other than amex since the fees were cheaper. They said not a problem if I didnt but wanted to check. They didnt force it but they inquired.

Here is sauce for those interested: http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/05/ ... ZS20150501

personally I think it is bs. Don't offer to take it then ask me to use something else. Whatever convenience is gained by accepting all cards is instantly lost if I have to grab a different card.
