wal-mart doesn't like american express
Did an errand run. Needed to buy a few things. Headed to Wal-Mart. Picked up my items. Proceeded to the checkout.
On attempt to use American Express.. "Card Not Accepted".
I voided all the items and left.
Went to K-Mart. Bought same items. Used American Express card.
Went right thru. No problems at all.
I can only assume Wal-Mart either doesn't accept AMEX cards, or AMEX refuses to do business with them.
K-Mart, on the other hand, accepts just about everything.
