Card acceptance internationally at stores like Neiman Marcus and Costco

Postby Money card » Sun Jul 10, 2011 9:11 am

You know how in the Neiman Marcus store at the malls they only take their store card and American Express as far as credit cards go, they take checks and cash.

In the Costco warehouses they only take Debit cards and American Express, checks and cash.
How about overseas let's say in England, France, Germany, Ireland if there's a Costco warehouses and Neiman Marcus upscale store not the outlet do they take other major credit cards other than American Express? like visa, Mastercard, Discover, JCB, Carte Blanche, Diners Club etc?

I can't say for every store but many of those exclusivity agreements American Express and Discover have with chain stores don't always apply internationally.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

In India where I grew up you do not see those stores. The stores there accept Visa and Mastercard and not much else.

usually, international agreements are separate from domestic agreements....i haven't been to costco's abroad but i suspect that i would be using my amex just the same.

Visa and Mastercard are not accepted at Neiman Marcus except online.

Return to “Visa & MasterCard”
