If we're talking about self serve checkout and kiosks, I can see it.  But I've never had a cashier/clerk tell me I had to give my zip code for them to complete a transaction.

 

ETA: I've had lots of clerks ask for my zip code or phone number, but I always say no.


i think its good because it keeps other people from using it if they steal it



I understand why they do it at kiosks and automated pay stations.  But are you saying that as a cashier/clerk in your retail establishment, if someone refuses to provide you with their zipcode, you can't complete the transaction.  That is what I am trying to figure out.  I have never experienced that.

Re: zync with express pay

Our local Walmart requires zip code AND signature for any AMEX transaction. Its a PITA! Other Walmarts I've been to don't require it which is weird.

 

So I just use Discover instead there lol.

Discover IT $25K | FNBO Visa $25K | Citi Forward (grandfathered 5x Restaurants!) $14.5K | US Bank Cash+ Visa Sig $15K | Priceline/Barclays $15K | Chase Freedom $10.5K | Amazon/Chase Visa Sig $8.3k | Southwest Premier $7.8K | BoA Cash Rewards 1-2-3 Sig $7.5K | Fidelity AMEX $7K | Citi Double Cash $6.5K | BoA Cash Rewards 1-2-3 Sig $7.5K | Sallie Mae World MC/Barclays $5K | Capital One Cash Rewards $5K | Commerce Bank $5K | WF Cash Back Visa $3.6K | Younkers/Comenity $2.4K | AMEX BCE $3K | Target $1K | EX FICO (from AMEX): 762, TU08 FICO (from Discover): 763, AAoA: 4.3 years

Thanks for clarification.  I suppose I'll run into it sooner or later.
