Hmmm, there are disposable debit cards you can get which protect your privacy, right?
Here's a few. Most have a monthly user fee, probably to compensate that they can't sell your financial information.https://www.creditcards.com/prepaid/
Are there any that let you load them via paper cash, and have no link to your real identity whatsoever?
Thanks, I'll have to see if they will accept cash for those.
No. It's illegal. The excuse is to prevent money laundering. Been this way for a decade.
Dude - just use cash. If they don't accept cash, go somewhere else.
Maybe the resistance should be called The Picnic Club.
Lesson: call ahead and make sure a restaurant will take cash. If they will not, don't go there.
Ghetto Flea Markets,
richwicks saysNo. It's illegal. The excuse is to prevent money laundering. Been this way for a decade.100% false. I have been using them for two years. I fill up $500 every time I buy the card to maximize the activation fee.

If we are talking resteraunts in bay area can't you just walk out without paying? Paying for food in bay area sounds so pre 2010s.
Greek restaurant around here is cash only.
It's much harder for the IRS to know how much money a cash business really made. And that's fine with me.
We don't fill up our automobiles with unknown octane gas, why do we fill up stomach with unknown quality food served by a business whose goal is to maximize profit
This particular place wouldn't let you order without paying by credit card from you table first.No waitresses either, only a QR code to get the menu, and then you have to put in your credit card.I won't go back.Booger saysGreek restaurant around here is cash only.My wife points out two reasons why small family-run places love cash:1. They don't worry about being ripped off by the staff, because the staff is family.2. They don't want to pay the credit card vig of 1.5% or whatever.But there is a third one of course. It's much harder for the IRS to know how much money a cash business really made. And that's fine with me.
@NuttBoxer - In order to get the card, you had to disclose your address and your phone number in order to activate it.
gabbar saysWe don't fill up our automobiles with unknown octane gas, why do we fill up stomach with unknown quality food served by a business whose goal is to maximize profit@gabbar Yes, that's another good point.You have much more control over the food when it's your own picnic, assuming the ingredient lists on what you buy are accurate.
