Any problems with using Discover over the holidays?

Postby Money card » Tue Jan 31, 2012 10:29 pm

For anybody who went shopping from November 26th through December 24th, whether it was a store, a restaurant, or a store in a mall, did anybody have any problems with Discover card acceptance? I know there are some small places like Italian restaurants / pizza places that don't take American Express, I know there are some popular places that don't take Discover

Like Mahwah Bar and Grill, Hermes, Bergdorf Goodmans and the Saddle River Inn.

Out where you people are were there any places that didn't take Discover? Which ones?

I signed up for the 5% back and all restaurants I went to took my Discover card.

I don't think McDonald's takes Discover but they do take Amex. Some of the smaller Ma and Pa type stores usually only take Visa and MasterCard.

I don't know about down in Phoenix but McDonalds I've seen here in Michigan takes Discover.

I will have to look. Last time I checked it was Amex, MasterCard and Visa only.

I'm not sure about acceptance, but Discover did have tighter fraud monitoring in December, it was a small PITA
