I can see a situation where your are showing off a recent purchase and the person you are showing it to claims it was their card, recently stolen. A receipt sure would help your cause.

I did not mean to imply anything controversial, it's just that I have NEVER been given a receipt by any dealer at any card show. Ever. But, then again, I've never asked for one. That's why I was curious.

I agree and one of the reasons they’d give u one I never implied dealers would think it odd. It happens often at the national.

I guess the emoji mislead me of your implications.

I have also borrowed numerous wads of 100s, from friends at the National, to make cash purchases when I ran out of said cash. Where there is a will there's a way.

+1 on the cash. Just don't carry it all in one place (i.e., your wallet--and keep your wallet in your front pocket!) and be aware of what's going on around you, both on the show floor and to and from the parking lot. Somebody that's stepping right along with you, making every turn, is more than likely up to no good. Cash will often get you better deals (the 2015 National), but not always (not as much discount percentage wise at the 2016 national, IMHO).

Just be careful,

Larry
