Smith’s Is Accepting Visa Credit Cards Again
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Nearly seven months after Smith’s Food & Drug Stores stopped accepting Visa credit cards, the grocery chain has quietly announced that decision has been reversed.
KSLnewsradio reports the news broke on Smith’s website in the form of a banner on the home page that reads: “We now accept Visa credit cards, plus Mastercard, American Express, Discover and all debit and HSA cards.”
The Kroger-owned company dropped Visa credit cards as a form of payment in April 2019 because “Visa’s fees are more than any other credit card brand that we accept and sometimes even exceed(s) our grocery margins,” Smith’s Food & Drug Division Corporate Affairs Manager Aubriana Martindale told KSL TV in March.
“Grocery is a very competitive industry, and again, in order to keep our commitment to our customers, who are our priorities, we have to control costs,” she added.
It’s unclear what prompted the reinstatement of Visa credit cards at this time. This article will be updated as new information is made available.
