My family has run auto repair shops for about the last decade and we've almost always offered a 5% discount off the pre-tax total for cash or local check payments (with local checks being cashed out and the cash deposited in the company account - we try to avoid even letting the bank process a check if we can avoid it as the banks in our area love to hold checks) on auto repairs, which can add up to some rather substantial savings for customers. It's also rather substantial on our end as well, as even at a "decent" card rate you still lose a pretty healthy chunk of change when you're working with thousand-dollar invoices.|
On a totally unrelated note, hey Genesis, next time you hit KFC step next door to Marshall's old building and say "hello!"
