Our average amount is around $500 and the Visa/MC % is bad enough. People always seem to find a Visa when they learn we don't take Amex.
Exactly! I prefer to pay with my Amex because I get a lot more points when I do, but I will just use my Visa without issue if it isn't accepted.

The behaviour demonstrated here though is simply unacceptable...
