It happened again yesterday! I went to my local farmer stand and just needed a few veggies to make shrimp fajitas with guacomole and when I went to pay with my debit she said I had to spend $10. If you take credit cards how can you deny the sale. It is so ridiculous. I just left all the food there and went to another store I knew accepted credit without any minimum. Its not like I tried to send a $1.00. The total was probably around $8. I heard this is illegal according to an article I read. The merchant contracts tell them they must accept the credit card not matter the amount of the sale.
