Recap: Cash Only/Credit Accepted, SuperShuttle Hotel Booking & Citi Free Bike Pass

 

  • Winn-Dixie Now Hardcoded Against Credit by ProjectEnd Point. Anybody know if Winn-Dixie has chip enabled POS?
  • Stop & Shop is back to accepting credit cards. Plenty of readers have sent this tip in and since they are actually promoting it in store I guess they feel comfortable now they have rolled out pin enabled terminals. Image via reader Keither J

Regarding winn-dixie – just bought vgc yesterday in FL and credit option was working.

All the Winn Dixie’s in SE Louisiana are chip enabled. As of yesterday, I was unable to purchase gift cards with a CC at at least 5 of them. I haven’t bothered to test anymore since it seems pretty conclusive on my end.

I had thought that with chip POS enabled, they’d be fine with credit card purchases on gift cards. Apparently not.

In FL all Winn Dixies have chip enabled terminals. While the credit option still works in my to-go store, I believe the days are numbered. Because if some stores already cash/debit only, others will follow soon or later. I recall that managers complain that they see almost every week people who try to purchase Vic’s with stolen credit cards.

Any Data point on giant accepting cc for gift card? Since stop and shop is accepting now.

Would like to know this, too. A couple weeks ago, the displays switched to gift card mall sponsored display and the signs saying cash or debit only were gone. Was waiting for a gas promotion to try out.

There is no CC that is best for supermarket spending right? https://www.doctorofcredit.com/credit-card-reference-pages/

I bought 2% discount stop n shop gift cards with my Citi Double Cash so nearly 4% total, wondering if they allow me to use stop n shop gift cards to buy third party gift card over there.

Had credit fail at WD in FL today so I guess it’s true! This was a chip location also.

The Stop & Shop in New Haven, CT has the sign up and the customer service reps said they still don’t accept credit cards as payments regardless of what that sign states.

Can confirm WD is dead for credit cards. Some designs do still work but MCs are dead.

My friend said that the Stop and Shop in Somerville MA still doesn’t accept CCs. So I guess YMMV.
