Since when is CASH no Good?

I hate to say it, but Apple’s decision to not allow anyone to pay cash for a iPhone has to be about the most ridiculous decision that anyone in the history of any company has ever made.

To tell your clients that your money aka CASH is no good on certain purchases goes against everything that being in business is all about. I love customers who pay cash. You know why? I get a higher profit margin in that I do not have to pay the credit card transaction fee.

To be honest is it legal in this country to be in business and not accept legal tendered dollars as payment for goods and services? Apple, you really need to get a grip.

I think people should start paying for other Apple purchases in “change” yes, make payment in pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Zdnet.com
