    Update:

    An email to Microcenter Customer service (national) ended up wth me talking on the phone to this particular branches "Front End Supervisor." She apologized for the inconvenience, and said that they have a lot of new cashiers that might not have known. (Big difference between not knowing how to do it, and blatantly telling me that it is against policy, IMO). Anyhow, she said she spoke with all if the cashiers and she is sending me a $10 gift card for my trouble (Big whoop on the gift card, I was hoping for a wireless print server for free, but it's better than a kick in the teeth). I am glad if she truly educated he people.

    doesn't anyone know the grocerybag trick? sometimes the readers get dirty. you wrap the card in a groery bad(tightly) and run it through a few times. the bag acts like a cleaning patch through a barrel pulling alot of grime out of the slot. then the cards reads fine. works 66% of the time.

    Maybe my math is rusty but 7 and 67 come up to 74 to me...
