Oh my! Walmart Plans To Boycott VISA

“Walmart says it intends to join the list of retailers in Canada that don’t accept Visa cards, citing high fees for transactions. It’s a move one retail analyst has said will cause “pain on all sides.””

Oh my! TLW and I do a lot of business with Walmart and our favourite cards are VISA… I’ve even bought peanut butter and jam from Walmart and paid by VISA over the web. The product was great even though one shipment was delivered to my door and the other I had to drive a few miles to pick up at the post office. For in-person shopping we can use another banking/debit card but I have a card that is both VISA and debit, so I’m bound to have a few awkward moments at the till. Sigh. Stuff changes and it isn’t always for the better.

    Have you considered a MasterCard, Robert?
    I hear they’re very popular amongst the over 70 set.

    People “plan” things all the time.

    Such as: Munich Plans To Install Windows Again, Abandoning Linux

    However, acting on such “plan” never comes to fruition.

    I doubt VISA will want to lose all those Wallmart customers. They will just reduce their fees.

    Well, one of us here has worked for Visa for six years. And one of us is totally clueless.

    Guess what, Kurks? That will never happen in a million years.

    I like that, because it makes credit card issuers less omnipotent.
