Not true at all. Visa charges what... 4% on purchases? Forget that. Then there is the whole inconvenience thing - drop a 20 on the bar and walk away, that sort of thing. No need for electricity.

Hell, maybe I just want my perfectly legal purchases to be... PRIVATE?

There are plenty of reasons to prefer cash that do not involve nefarious dealing.
