Some merchants think that not taking that card will save money, the reality is that they will actually loose business and therefore competitor shopping is practice many loyal AMEX customers follow.
+1. Lack of a particular card acceptance doesn't always deter my business, but sometimes if there is a choice I definitely lean towards the AmEx-accepting place.
But between that and horror stories I've heard of AmEx dropping CL's or accounts entirely on a whim, I keep multiple merchant cards on me at a time (ESPECIALLY when traveling) just to feel secure.
