Minimum Purchase Requirements

Some stores require a minimum purchase if you want to use a debit or credit card. But some credit card companies say that is against their rules.

Visa and MasterCard officials say card holders can purchase anything, even if it's only $.50.  But NewsChannel 10 found two Amarillo stores that say they do require you buy a certain amount if you want to use your card.  One store charged us an extra 30 cents because we only bought a pack of gum.

Another store charged $.99 for a $.65 coke claiming they have to charge more if the purchase is under a certain amount because the credit card companies charge them.

If you ever have a problem with a store making minimum purchase requirements Visa officials say call the number on the back of your card or 1-800-VISA-911.  Let them know the name and location of the merchant.
