My parents live a few blocks away from Breeden's Orchard and I thought I would take my 2 & 4 year old sons there for a treat- peach slushies. When I handed the female owner my debit card (which had a Mastercard logo) she handed it back to me and informed me that they wouldn't accept my card for payment. I was a bit stunned, but quickly scanned the cash register and saw the "Visa/Mastercard is accepted here" sign. When I asked why not, the owner stated that my debit card said "cash rewards" on it and by accepting it for payment she would have to pay a higher fee for the transaction. I tried to explain to her that the cash rewards was meant for ME, the patron (my bank pays me back when I use their card for purchases.) She couldn't understand this concept, so I paid by check and promptly left. I called my bank and informed them of this unusual situation. The banker let me know that Breeden's Orchard HAS to accept any card with a Visa or Mastercard logo if they want to keep their credit card terminal. Turning my card down for payment violated their credit card agreement with Visa & Mastercard. I love their produce and will continue to purchase from them, but I will make sure to bring cash next time.
