Do you say my AMEX, my Visa Gold, my MasterCard to mean your credit cards issued by a relevant company?

I always take (my) Visa Gold, when I go abroad on holiday.

Will you accept AMEX (at a gas station).

  • I certainly don't say "I always take my MasterCard card," although search reveals that some people do. – Peter Shor Aug 5 '15 at 19:22

    I generally omit card when speaking of my credit cards. At all restaurants, I kindly ask the server to charge it [the food] to my Master. – Jake Regier Aug 5 '15 at 19:24

    @JakeRegier Good one that. I must try it - "Charge it to my master, my good man!" – WS2 Aug 5 '15 at 19:37
  • And the master would usually mean the trouble-and-strife, wouldn't it? – Joost Kiefte Aug 6 '15 at 22:28

A more general term you can use for all credit cards is to ask "Do you take plastic?"

I have heard it used as simply Visa or Mastercard when refering to the credit cards.

A merchant can and has said to me on numerous occasions:

We accept cash, check, and Visa.
