Why Neiman Marcus Won't Take Visa and Mastercard - Page 3

post #31 of 33
about 15 years ago, i bought two suits at NM. when i paid, they wouldn't take my credit cards and i didn't have AMEX. so they issued me a NM card on the spot and that was that. if respecting their customers' privacy is their reason for not taking V/MC, they sure violate it when if comes to holders of NM charge cards. all they do is bombard you with junk mail, much of it, i seem to remember, for merchandise that i'd never never buy -- women's cosmetics. NM always struck me as a prim, prissy store.

I have always received fine service at the Michigan Avenue store in Chicago, and they also issued me a NM card on the spot, as they did you. I guess I am hesitant to throw out the baby with the bathwater. And as for their catalogs, I rather like the Christmas edition. A few years back they had a motorcycle for half a million dollars in there. Of course, the engine couldn't operate.

Because US Dollars are "Legal Tender" it is technically illegally for the store (or anyone) not to accept cash as payment for anything offered for sale.
Nope. US currency is "legal tender for all debts, public and private." Debts aren't the same as payments. It's perfectly legal for any retailer to decline any currency for payment for any reason. See the US Treasury FAQ.
