UA markets now accepting credit cards

Credit card transactions are being accepted at the Park Student Union food court, Highland Market, the U-Mart and Redington Restaurant in the Student Union Memorial Center.

The decision was made after the Arizona Student Unions received customer requests for the service, and also because these locations carry a large selection of non-food items that cannot be purchased with meal plan monies on the CatCard, said Dan Adams, director of Arizona Student Unions.

Sales tax cannot be waived with credit card purchases, Adams said.
