    Serious question: do most online retailers/vendors have an option to use prepaid VISA-MC-AMEX cards? I've never really noticed.

    I don't need any. I couldn't care less who knows what I buy. Frankly, that monthly list of items is a whole lot less interesting than anyone might imagine.

    Today, I bought a Dr Pepper, two outdoor lights, another Dr Pepper, an ice cream, a slushie, another Dr Pepper and a bottle of water.

    They process the same as a credit card. It's same-same as far as the merchant is concerned.

    You can always call and ask in advance if they*ll take prepaid.

    My goto card is Amex Blue Preferred which pays back 6% on groceries, 3% on gas, and 1% on everything else. You have to watch how stores code because some grocery stores code groceries as general merchandise. I believe you have to pay at the pump to get the 3% on gas too, maybe because the in store scanners code purchases differently.

    From an email sent by Brownells today...

    Dear ,

    I*m sure you*ve heard a lot in the news recently about major credit companies coming together to create a new merchant category code (MCC) for firearm and ammunition retailers. We*ve received a lot of inquiries about what this means, how it could impact customers and how Brownells is classified today and in the future.

    Therefore, I wanted to reach out to you * a valued customer and friend * to clarify a few things regarding this issue.

    Brownells Classification Now & Going Forward
    First and foremost, I want you to know that Brownells has long been classified as a *sporting goods retailer* by credit card companies. After conversation with our banking partners, we have confirmed that we will continue to be classified as a SPORTING GOODS RETAILER.

    To be clear, we WILL NOT be changing to the new MCC dedicated to firearm and ammunition retailers. This is mainly due to the types of products we predominately sell.

    Industry Impacts

    Throughout Brownells* 83-year-history in the firearm industry, we*ve proudly taken a stand for our industry, gun owners in general and the 2nd Amendment * irrespective of whether legislation, regulatory actions or other anti-2A measures have impacted us directly.

    Put simply, we*re all in the fight for freedom and privacy together. Are we happy that our MCC code isn*t changing? Yes. However, we are deeply concerned with the impact this new classification may have on firearm owners or prospective firearm owners, local gun stores and even our competitors.

    Therefore, you have my word that we will join in any effort to make our voices heard and to educate all parties involved in this matter.

    Our Position on Your Privacy

    We love offering you firearms, firearm accessories, parts, tools, ammunition, reloading products and all of the accoutrements to outfit your next firearm-related adventure. As shooters, hunters, firearm do-it-yourselfers, and gunsmiths ourselves, nothing brings us more pleasure than to see and hear from you about how our products, content and services help you pursue your passions.

    However, I can assure you * our NUMBER ONE priority is the safety, security and privacy of your data. Our promise to you is that we will continue to vehemently guard your personal data and order information, always.

    Sincerely,

    Chad Martin
    CEO, Brownells, Inc.

    Sounds good. I wonder if we can find what each vendor is going to do.
    If we don't get Oz, we get stuck with Fetterman.

    I don't believe they have a choice in how they are coded. I know my business didn't.

    Has Discover jumped on the bandwagon yet?
