So Unca Cece and fellow minions,
What’s the difference between MasterCard and Visa anyway? As far as I can tell, they’re one and the same, but if that’s so, why have both? I only ever see Visa advertised, but I’ve NEVER seen a store that took Visa but not MasterCard, or vice-versa.
And while we’re at it, what’s the deal with Diner’s Club… Is it a credit card? I’ve only even seen one once, and rarely recall seeing one of the little “we accept Diner’s Club” stickers posted along with the Visa/MC AmEx notices. Do they have a market? Are they solvent? Are they gonna give up and drop the whole thing soon? Do you have to eat out a lot to get one? I mean, I’m deluged with offers for Gold this and Platinum that, but never once Diner’s Club… Is it something that only the mega-rich get? Do you have to know a secret handshake? Is there some reason it’s desirable?
