    Do US Apple Stores accept Cash?
    Hi Guys,

    Tomorrow i'll be heading from the UK over to New York for a week, whilst i'm there i'm going to pick myself up a Macbook from that fancy store they've got (that glass cube thing ).

    What i would like to know though is, do the Apple Stores accept cash/travellers cheques as form of payment? Just i'd heard something on the internet about them only accepeting credit card (or was this only in relation to iPhones?). I have no problem paying by card, but would prefer to pay via travellers cheque.


    Thanks for looking,


    Zak Blair.

    They do accept cash. They prefer CC because of their belt POS systems.

    lol I've never seen a store that didn't accept cash either I would bet that theres a 99.9% chance that they do accept cash .

    Bit of a long shot this - but had you thought of calling them?
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.

    I don't know why the store would want to accept credit card though, surely they're open to a lot of card fraud being that it's all still signature in america?
    I know i'd be reluctant to.

    There are people with little computers that can check you out but only if you are using debt or credit. You have to go to the counter to pay with cash or checks.

    I went to the mall in Norfolk, Virginia (MacArthur Center) last week and they got rid of the kiosk counter. Now there are just people walking around with the mini kiosks on their belt, I'm not sure if they accept cash but the counter where you usually pay cash is non-existent now.

    Same with the Apple Store here (Southlake, TX). Got rid of the registers and now carry the palms. People can still pay cash at the iPod bar.

    Apple reportedly will not accept cash for an iPhone, period.

    Anything else, you can probably pay cash for...but carrying enough cash for, say, a Mac Pro around with you is probably not a good idea.

    Agreed. Personally, I never understood why anyone would want to pay for a $100+ item with cash.
    I simply don't feel comfortable carrying that much loot on my person at any given time.

    They only take two specific types of travelers checks but they will take your cash. You may have to wait in line usually the cash line gets a bit long with most of the stores going to handheld eastpays and only a few or one cash registers in the smaller stores.
    Not sure the specific Travelers checks but you could always try.
