    Ok quick question,I went to Walmart on monday and my Card Worked Perfectly No Problems Whats So ever. Then I try to get gas the following Day which was yesterday I run it threw the Gas Pump it says Authorizing Like Normal then It beeps at me Go See Cashier so I didnt feel like going in.

    Then last night I said Theirs gotta be something Up I go to My Bank and use the Same Card in the ATM and It works Perfectly I get my bank statement and leave thinking o it must just be the gas Pump.

    Well Tonight I try a differnt Gas Pump in a intirely Differnt Town and a Intirely Differnt Company and the same thing happend. I went in the store and Tried it and they tried it Both Credit and Debit and Nonithg Happens.

    So can tell me whats wrong? Either way im going to the bank to see I just wanna know if this ever happend to anyone else?

    Does anyone know whats Going on?

    I'd call the credit card company. I'm sure you can look them up online and find a site with a number.

    Is it saying it's declined or just not working? Maybe the card itself is damaged?

    Well thats the thing thier is a lil scratch on it but i dunno if it is major but it worked in the ATM so if it was damaged why would it work in the ATM? This really got me stumped and a lil pissed off.

    the amount of spelling errors in your OP begs to disagree.

    and you should always keep the phone number for your card (it came with the card when issued) for times like this.

    in the end, it would be a relief if it was a termporary freeze as a security feature.

    i can deal with a minor headache to protect me far easier than a store or computer misread due to a damaged card.

    good luck.

    If it is only happening at gas pumps, I wouldn't worry. A lot of gasoline places get scammed by stolen credit cards, so they make you see the clerk when you use a credit/debit card to get you on video. If it happens at a Target or Walmart, then I would worry. I hope that this helps.

    Have you used that card in gas pumps before?

    It may be that your card is not set up on that companys credit card system. Get the company to ring their credit card terminal provider and see why your card is not going through.

    Just have the company issue you a new card. No reason to dicker around with a card that doesn't work anymore. It's just a little piece of plastic - they reprint cards for people all the time.

    Could be that they don't accept ATM cards and since it is an ATM card it won't work as a Credit Card..

    Check your balance. Many gas stations will make sure there's a minimum balance available
    (maybe $50) before allowing you to pump gas. Without it, your card will be declined.

    It may also be as a result of your overuse of capital letters for words that don't require them. Try holding back a bit. :)

    Might just be a gas station thing. I've had problems using my card at the pump before too, but like another poster said, unless it starts happening at Targets and other places then I wouldn't worry too much.

    If there's no phone number on the card. Google the issuing company to find a phone number. I feel like you have some sort of weird second-party card or something like that.

    Right. :rolleyes2
