Where Was Your Card Declined Today?

Hopefully, my card is not being declined anywhere. If my card is being declined, it means I don't have any money.

 

That said.. The next place may be somewhere in the mall.

You need to get something besides crappy debit cards which afford you ZERO protections compared to credit cards...

I tried to use WF's cardless ATM on Sunday using codes tied to both my debit card and my ATM card.  All attempts were declined.  

 

I called in today and they couldn't explain why, but they've unlocked my cards so I can try again.

A couple weeks ago, Citi declined at local grocery store, didn't have time to call and find out why, then used it several more times with no problems. Then called to follow up and they couldn't say why it was declined and there was no problem. 

 

Pretty rare that transactions are declined, but it does happen. Goes to show to always have a couple backups.

Smith's Fuel (Kroger). Attempted to purchase gas at the pump with my Penfed 5% cashback Visa.

 

Card did not work: "Please see cashier".

 

Cashier informed me that Visa is no longer accepted due to excessive interchange fees. He suggested I apply for a Smith's Mastercard.

 

I bought 35 gallons of gas across the street at Shell instead, so Kroger successfully avoided paying the interchange fee.  :lol:

I ordered a new Citi TYP for TAD since his was nowhere to be found.

 

The card arrived and was activated, and I put it in his wallet.

 

Later that day the card was declined for a $1,600 equipment purchase he needed to make for work, and then again for a $12 fee at a parking lot.

I assumed that my new W*****t card from Capital One was sitting in our mailbox in California.

 

As it turns out, someone was trying to use it at Amazon this morning...

Apparently those two ideas weren't mutually exclusive.

This an open mailbox or a locked one?

Locked.  And I looked back and I had a mail hold until yesterday.

Cashier at Chick-fil-a told me my Uber Visa was declined and asked me to pay some other way.

 

Used my PNC Cash Rewards instead but was suspicious so I kept the receipt in case of double charge.

 

Oddly enough I see the charge pending on Uber Visa so I'm not really sure what happened.

W*****t MasterCard, at W*****t at 6:00 a.m. today (I'm boycotting the nearby Vons and their 8-ounce/$3.99 bags of grated Kraft cheese).

 

I waited too long to do store pickup, so I had to go inside.  

 

OMG.  :swoon:

My Chase Hyatt card is consistently declined when I try to use it at Hilton properties.  It's approved literally everywhere else.

Sam's Club Mastercard...declined several months ago at a restaurant.  Amex worked there.  Went home,  found no issues with the card.  Used it at another restaurant the next day.  Last night used the card at a restaurant and about 30 minutes later, declined at a movie theater for $5.  Went home and found no issues with the card.  It seems to be the only card I have had this intermittent issue with.

Wow, now you have to clip a digital coupon to get a little bag of grated cheese for $3.99.  🖕

I've been dealing with this for a year.

 

After getting zero help from the local branch, I escalated the problem for a second time via phone last week, and got transferred to someone who opened a tech support ticket and gave me an incident number.

 

Yesterday I got an email asking me to call in to provide tech support with more info so they can help.  

 

I called in and the incident had already been closed (apparently, WF tech support doesn't see the need to fix my problem since I've been able to get cash with the physical card since I reported the incident with cardless ATM access).

 

The agent who helped me today is now saying that the cardless ATM access doesn't work if you aren't using an ATM in the same state as your mailing address -- unless you have a travel notice set up on the account. 

 

So I had him change our mailing address back to our place in California, since this is the only place where I ever get cash from a Wells Fargo ATM.

 

And now I prepare for the next declined attempt to get cash.

And now there's a limit of one per day for the privilege of paying $10.64/pound for a bag of bland, waxy cheddar.  🙄

Pseudo-decline: POS terminal at the convenience store near the office didn't want to take the chip and prompted me to use the mag stripe...which worked just fine.  Seemed that they had some sort of a software change as well...usually it prompts to agree with the amount but instead prompted for whether it was credit or debit.  Transaction actually took a few seconds less than normal...

Thank goodness you weren't at a kiosk!

Starbucks. Granted a few seconds prior to inserting my card, some Neanderthals hit a pole, and took out the interwebs.

 

Gave me the coffee for free.

      Hello,
       
         I am seeking some help on understanding the reason as to why I keep getting denied credit for my business. I’m wondering if maybe I. Filling out the application wrong or something.
       
      Here is some info on my business, and business credit. 
       
      An established business
      over $75,000,000 a year in revenue
       
      D n B score is
       
      89 Paydex Score
      92 delinquency predictor percentile
      90 financial stress 
      2 supplier evaluation risk rating
      low business risk overall
       
      highest past due $0 
      highest owing is $75,000
      46 yrs trade experience 
      $200,000 largest high credit
      an average of $33,236 credit
       
      Experian Scores is an A  
      Transunion a B
      Equifax an A
       
      I still can not open an Amazon, Home Depot, Lowe’s, or Best Buy account. Does anyone know why that maybe? Any insite will be greatly appreciated. 
       
      Thanks in advance.
