During the past couple of years whenever I want to get gas and pay at the pump at a lot of stations I am asked for a zip code. As a Canadian I don't have one. Some gas attendants suggested I used six zeros, but that didn't work. I called my credit card companies and they claimed to have never heard of the problem and there was nothing they could do about it. Have any other fellow Canadians faced this situation and actually were able to do something about it without getting in a lineup to hand their card over to the cashier? sad.gif

RLM,

The flip side of that coin would be for all businesses to charge extra for the use of credit cards. As stated in other posts, we offer a variety of discounts, some of them very deep discounts. I do not see us ever offering an even deeper discount for cash purchases. In past years, long before I was in the RV Park business, I remember camping in many parks that would not give the Good Sam discount, KOA discount, AARP discount (or any other discount program) unless you paid cash.

As a park owner, I choose not to complicate things. I charge my posted and advertised prices, including any applicable discounts, and I charge the same price whether cash or credit card. I do, however, ask for the additional CC and zip code info when taking telephone deposits for reservations so that I can keep my CC costs as low as possible as any responsible business owner would do.
