Credit Cards

Sin purchases

Potentially controversial goods such as alcohol, tobacco, lottery tickets, tattoos or adult movies. Purchases of such item may be legal in the U.S. as a whole, but 12 states have rules restricting the use of Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards for such transactions. Depending on the state, retailer, card issuer and/or bank involved, credit cards may also not be used to purchase lottery tickets.
