I'm going to Anime Central and was wondering if anyone knows if they will take debit or credit cards there!

Do you mean in the dealers' hall? It really depends on the vendor, but a lot of them nowadays do have devices on their phones so they can receive credit/debit card payments unless they have other equipment to take cards.

I would bring cash, but mostly all the dealers should accept cards. If not, I'm sure the hotel has an ATM somewhere.

Have to be careful with those ATMs.. I've been at cons where all ATMs within a several block radius had been emptied by Saturday, and wouldn't be refilled until the con was over.

I know some people don't trust dealer hall credit card readers, and prefer cash for that reason. Personally, I like going with cash because it helps make sure I don't overspend on all the goodies available

Thanks everyone! I think I will end up bringing cash in that case. I live less than an hour away from the co, so I should be fine on transportation!

Always bring cash to a convention. You never know when you might need some money for an emergency. A lot of vendors do take credit cards these days too, just depends on the vendor. Also don't blow all of your money at one booth - pace yourself!
