As you've pretty much noted, it's a violation of the T&C (boo freaking hoo :p).

Technically, SWIY (someone who isn't you) could be charged if you use the card in a criminal manner (don't do that...

You asked! :p Like I said, "some people." And, like you said, "to each their own." If it helps a person sleep better at night, I see no harm.

Regardless of official vs. unofficial rules, a very polite request to the cashier to "please see if it will work" won't hurt. No lecture required. If the answer is "no," then move along.
