The parking garage for the performing arts theatre near me only takes Visa/Mastercard, and another parking garage near the beach doesn't take Discover but does take Amex... Pollo Tropical is the reverse and doesn't take Discover (which was going to be one of my few purchases to count toward the 5% bonus). The parking meter on the beach is most frustrating in that it doesn't take Amex, Discover, or bills! Only Visa, MasterCard, and coins; it's one of the most frustrating places to park as far as paying the meter. I try to bring coins with me, but 1 hour is $2, and I tend to keep my coins in my work bag because they're one of the few places I use them.
It seems mostly everywhere takes Amex and it's more worth noting who doesn't.

I just paid my insurance online and it seems they take it there. Last year they took my payment over the phone, too.
