I donít understand why the author chose not to use an article before ĎAmerican Express Cardí in the first part of the following sentence. Please comment.
Suppose, for example, that I eat dinner in a restaurant, run up a $20 bill, and pay by American Express card rather than by cash. The American Express card is not money.
The writer has shown poor grammar. It should be:
"...run up a $20 bill, and pay with American Express rather than (with) cash."
OR"...run up a $20 bill, and pay with an American Express card rather than with cash."
We pay by cheque.
"Will you pay cash or by cheque?"
