it is against v,mc policy but not illegal. In the past when I've been asked for ID I've told clerks this but they don't understand since their store manager sets their policy.
Good luck getting assistance from cc companies on this. I've tried to complain about merchants charging fees for cc purchases and found it impossible to get through to mc, v with complaint.
V and MC are happy to make the rules but they care little if anything about enforcement, not worth it to them apparently.
On a related note, when merchants ask for your phone number, like I know Container Store does, for instance, just refuse. Sooner or later they'll learn.
