I use to in the past. I worked for Ikon for 15 years and we use to barter copiers for various things.

Copiers use to be a big ticket item. Must have gotten good things in return for them.

I did a deal with an new hotel that opened. They needed 2 copiers, so we did one as a barter for a reception hall that we used for a Christmas Party.

Yes, of course.
A friend of mine traded a horse for a new tile roof. Great trade.

I can't remember anything.

Probably when I was a kid...a baseball trading card for a dried frog or something like that.

1) Always pay with cash.
2) Always pay with cash, as long as it has nothing to do with Johnny.
3) Make weird sounds, whoops, fart in 9.1 THX, smell glorious and weep.
4) Pay with cash. Always.
5) Make it them to notice, that you are paying with cash...
6) ...even when you are the one wearing the t-shirt with the text...
7)... "I'm paying with cash and getting muttafukkin' 10 percent off this deal."

That's how it goes.

Not always, we have this silly feature on our cards, these days, that up to purchasing 25 € worth of stuff at one sitting, you just hold the card in the air and a secured RFID chip does the rest. No need to insert the chip in the slot.

EDIT: Takes it about an inch from the reader, so it's safe for the other customers as well.

EDIT #2: We call that air'n'chip approach... Official term coming up... 'Approximaty payment'.

EDIT #3: Even with this system, it occasionally refuses to work, unless you insert the proper PIN. It's paranoid enough, but not too paranoid to be annoying.

I have and still do with my PC guru buddy! I have something he wants and I trade it for knowledge of PC workings or sometimes parts when needed.
Used to some when I had my own shop and it worked out pretty good too.

I have done, on occasion. When the office I was working in needed something we were currently out of, for instance. Like printing paper for manila folders, or something.
I've also offered to cook dinner for someone, if they did a favor me.
