A restaurant I go to a lot is also a bakery and they're classified as retail rather than restaurant for interchange purposes. At this place I have to remember to use my Fidelity Amex (for 2%) instead of "wasting" the purchase on a lower return from Citi Forward. I can't remember this coming up anywhere else.
The card companies say they aren't responsible for how a merchant is categorized. Bear, I'm surprised Citi gave you anything. I think it's great that you gave them hell about it. More people should complain about stuff and we'd all get better service.
Mogul, hope the Amazon card works out for you.
