I regularly shop at Ralph's grocery store and pay with CC. I noticed that they don't ask you to sign a receipt if your purchase is less than some amount.
Now after some time I noticed that this minimal amount increased. At first I thought it is because I was their long time customer, but then I remembered that my credit limit increased around the same time. Interestingly, currently the minimal amount is exactly 1% of my credit limit, and before it was exactly 1% of my old limit.
Now if it's true that this minimal amount is exactly 1% of your credit limit, then you could pretty easily estimate everyone's credit limit in front of you in line, just need to hear the amount of their purchase and see whether they sign their receipt or not. Kind of useless, but would be fun nonetheless while waiting in line.
So the question is how this minimal amount is calculated, is it based on credit limit, on the merchant, on the bank, or it's more complicated. Also would be interesting to hear if other Ralph's customers sign their receipts at 1% of their credit limit or it's just me.
