Retailers That Accept Bitcoin
We’ve talked in the past about what websites accept bitcoin. But did you know you could spend your bitcoin at physical brick-and-mortar stores too?
Bitcoin-enabled payment processors and gift cards are making it easier and easier to spend your crypto in practically any store, but some of them accept it right at the register as well. Here are 5 categories of brick-and-mortar retailers who accept bitcoin payments on location.
Many small and locally-owned car dealerships will accept bitcoin payment, but most notably BMW dealers have been known to make a point of it. You can also purchase a Lamborghini with it … and probably always will be able to. After all, the phrase, “When Lambo?” (which translates as, “When will my crypto be worth enough to buy a Lamborghini?”) is too commonplace for this option to disappear.
Yes, you can buy movie tickets, popcorn and refreshments with bitcoin. This payment option is offered by large chains Regal Theatres, AMC Theatres and Lionsgate, as well as presumably some smaller and niche cinemas. If you’re purchasing in advance, Fandango and MovieTickets also let you spend your BTC.
If you’re shopping for an engagement ring, designer jewelry or Rolex watch, check out REEDS Jewelers. Not only do they accept bitcoin online, but you can also spend it instore at all REEDS locations across the country.
Bars and Restaurants
Brewdog, a favorite hipster hangout bar that prides itself on being cutting-edge and trendy, accepts bitcoin at select locations. So does EVR Bar in New York and the Killfish chain in Russia.
