My Visa card doesn't say 'In God we Trust"

Haven't used cash or coins for the last 5 months

I wouldn't have, but I've noticed here in New England a lot of small businesses will give you a "discount" if you use cash (or charge you extra if you use a credit card, which amounts to the same thing). Or in some cases, they won't even allow you to make a purchase with card unless you spend a certain amount. How widespread is this practice, anyone know? I don't recall it in my home state in the Midwest.

It’s the same here in Washington. It’s usually something like 50 cents per use. My company charges our customers an extra 2.5% which amounts to tens of thousands of dollars annually  for some customers.
