  3. Some Walmart, Fast Food and supermarket stores we’ve visted do not require you to sign a sales slip for purchases under a certain dollar amount.

    Sometimes it is best just to sign only ONE card, just to present to the very few merchants who insist on them being signed. But, if possible, do not keep it in the same wallet with the rest of your unsigned cards.

    Another option is to use your unsigned debit card -Merchants seldom require ID for them, even when they are not signed.

    Of course,with so many ATMs around – you can withdraw the money anytime to pay in cash for those merchants who refuse your card. Of course you don’t have the protection – but you do have more privacy.
