From research I did a while ago, the card associations are really targetting the card processors that use their merchant account to accept transactions on behalf of other vendors. They want a method to shut down the bad ones. I wouldn't worry just yet, the good ones are still around, the bad ones have closed their doors, but it bears watching just the same.
Come to think of it, Walmart, a.k.a. Sam's Wholesale is also tied to Discover/Novus.
Amex had some kind of case going. I understand the government is looking into an antitrust suit like the Microsoft suit against VS/MC. Saw that on the tv set. It is getting interesting.
