But this is rarely enforced these days because of security concerns. If you refuse to show ID and they refuse to take you card, what would you do?
I realize this is an old comment, but here's my answer anyway: I would probably just show them my ID in that situation. To be honest I don't find it that big of a deal, but it's nice to know whether or not I can feel safe carrying only my credit card (as long as I stay in-state I'm good xP). I could've sworn I've been ID'ed plenty of times before...but maybe all those memories are from times out of state.
