I'm right there with you Jimmie! I had one GC in Dallas ask for my phone number when I used my debit card. When I asked why, he gave me the whole thing about security and "it's for your safety". I told him that it was my DEBIT card and that I have to put in a PIN number, he still asked for it. Needless to say, I asked for a manager and I told him that if I had to still provide a phone number, I would take my business somewhere else! I did not have to provide a number! I ended up calling a different GC in Mississippi and talked with a district manager and he told me that they get phone numbers so that they can sell phone lists to help with "the bottom line". What he told me is that they ask for it, but you DO NOT have to give it to them to when using any kind of credit/debit card.

I believe in checking IDs and all for CREDIT CARDS to verify who is using it, but a phone number is useless.
