    OT Gas Pumps and Debit Cards

    Watch paying at the pump with a debit card. The stations are starting to put a hold on your card until the debit clears the bank. Shell was doing 200 bucks a few weeks ago and today my local Speedway started with 50 bucks. So you buy 10 bucks worth of gas its going to cost you 60 for a few days...Bob

    get a card with cash back (amex for me), then you get a nice gift at the end of the year! I had a GM Visa i used to put everything through. i had $350 towards a new vehicle, when i went to buy they had a special promotion, i got $1350!! Now i put everything through a credit card, even insurance!

    It's very rare that I carry cash. Even when I get it, I just deposit it right away.

    What's more funny, is that I always have checks on me even when most places won't take them anymore - all my industrial suppliers who won't take credit cards will take a check.

    The visa is only an easy way to pay. I don't carry a balance.

    It was my daughter. You know kids they buy a stick of gum and use a debit card. Speedway cust service said there is "supposed" to be a sign on the pump stating that the money will be held but there isn't one there. They are looking into it...Bob

    unfortunatly, a few have ruined it for the rest of us,
    most of them obama supporters, with their entitlement mentality.

    Why not just pay cash? A lot of people complain about credit or debit cards but they just keep using them.

    Credit card rules prevent that sort of abuse of the cardholder. Use a real credit card when you can. If you have to use an ATM card, you're better off going to the ATM to get cash before going to the pumps. That way you just withdraw what you need to pay for your gas and avoid the insane account holds imposed by the gas station leeches.

    Ours only authorize a dollar to verify the account is valid - then when the paperwork goes through they charge the actual sale.

    No kiss, first, no cigarette afterwards, just a "wham-bam-piss off, ma'am" ....

    Desiree Wright commented on your status:

    "I called customer service to complain and they said the pump is supposed to have a sign showing the hold amounts but ours doesnt have that. They are going to tell the area manager. "
