    Sadly in Australia there are a lot of places that impose minimum spend limits, at my work I don't impose a minimum spend, heck I have ran 3 cents through my machine. Generally I don't go to places that impose the minimum spend limit because of the principal that I believe that no matter how much I spend I should pay however I desire.

    I have never put in a complaint but I don't know how the laws work over here, they changed last year but I might look into it

    If a merchant plays games and sets minimums on what they accept with credits cards, I do not do business with them. I'll take my business to a competent merchant that understands there is a cost to doing business.

    I have a bit of a hardline stance on the issue, but as a total free market supporter, in progress of getting my MBA, and working for a major financial services corporation, all of my personal aspects are affected by my personal characteristics - and in that, my view is that if a merchant is unwilling to accept the cost of business, they are not worthy of my business.

    What about the old "credit card and ID"? I've created more than a handful of scenes over that one, most recently I got a photo credit card and figured out that if I swipe when they aren't looking, then if they want ID I show them the credit card with my photo and pretend I used that.
