Small mom an pop's for sure.... also POS places I never go to anyways.

I pretty much select merchants on the basis of them accepting 'the card'. You don't wanna accept the card, I go elsewhere.

Yum! In-And-Out Burger!

Del Taco doesn't take Amex either. I believe they do take Discover though.

There's a chain of garden centers in my town that doesn't take Amex. I've run into a local restaurant here and there that won't take it. It never bothers me because I always have at least one Visa. Sometimes, depending on the type of establishment, it's the Visa that's giving the better cashback anyway.

The Racetrak Gas Station at the end of the Florida Turnpike, exit 1.

Basically the last gas station southbound for about 20 miles on US-1

Gas

Sam's Club gas but they do take DISCOVER but i'll be using my Chase Freedom as i don't want to deal with the first $3000 every year to make it worth while.

I don't think SAMS CLUB takes AMEX

I haven't heard of a gas station not taking Amex until now. I guess it's a gotcha kind of place.

My vet doesn't take it.

I didn't know that IN-N-Out doesnt take AMEX. I use my primary card for now there all the time and it's always used, but then again it's a mastercard. Plus I love In-n-out.....best hamburgers that aren't frozen...IMO.
