Depends on the merchant, depends on the bank, depends on the credit card, depends if it were debit or credit, depends on the day of the week, depends on the state you were in, depends on the color of your shirt. There are alot of variables, I use my credit card for almost everything ( I don't use my debit card ), sometimes it takes over a week to post and sometimes it's there later that night. The ONE time I used my debit card for a purchase ( actually to pay a dealer for work done to my wife's Mitsubishi ) it was posted that day.

Re: gas staiton never charged my credit card.. what to do?

Didnt read the other replies, but this has happened to me a million times!

They don't post the cash for like 2-4 days. BUT! when the cash is posted, it takes it from the balance 2-4 days ago. So if you had $5 in your account, put $10 in gas, then a day later noticed you over drew and made sure to put $20 in before the $10 in gas was taken, it doesn't matter. The posts made on the account will originate from the day the card was used, not the day it shows up on your account.

Theres a gas station i USED to go to and they were like that, sometimes when i would get home it would be posted sometimes it was like 2-3 weeks, i would all of a sudden have 100 dollars worth of gas hit my bank account and drain me, well after the 4th time of making my account go into the negative i went to my bank manager and talked to him about it and showed him the 3 times it had happened previously where they did that and he credited me my overdraft fee, and got ahold of someone somewhere and had 50 bux from the gas station credited to my account lol. I dont go there anymore, got sick of that shit!

Re: gas staiton never charged my credit card.. what to do?

I always go to the local 7-11 that's about quarter mile up the street. It's on my way to/from work also, so theres no going out of my way to get there either. Usually theres a $1.00 transaction immediately, then a day or 2 later it'll actually post. Doesn't bother me cause it's all on a credit card, and I just pay it all off every month.

Re: gas staiton never charged my credit card.. what to do?

i actually saw a sign at the gas station at walmart the other day it says please do not drive off until receipt is printed, thats b/c it lets you get gas before funds are checked or somethign and if you pump too quick it doesnt register it? Anyways if you have receipt it prob went through

Thats why you should keep a balance book. I use my check book, and my online statement, and compare them both. Some stuff won't get posted for a few days, or weeks in your case, and you might forget about it, buy something, then get over drafted,

Could be so that no one esle takes your receipt with your info, or to make sure the sale has complete the transaction because the next person can pull up and start pumping gas on your account.

Re: gas staiton never charged my credit card.. what to do?

Definately wait. It all depends on when the gas station decides to reconcile their credit card machines. If they do it daily then it will show up Monday Night at midnight or shortly after, if they do it weekly then it will show up next Monday night. But if you got a receipt, then it will most definately come out of your account within the next week.

Re: gas staiton never charged my credit card.. what to do?

Credit card charges usually take a few days to post, debit goes thru right away.

I've been overdrawn plenty of times because I'm bad at managing the money in my bank and a few days will go by, I'll call up my bank and get my total and then be like 'hey cool, I got xxx amount of money', then I'll go and spend it and a credit card charge from a few days prior will hit and make me go into the negatives.

Re: gas staiton never charged my credit card.. what to do?

Once they have an authorization for your card (usually for $1) they have up to 30 days to submit the amount for the charge. Most places use an online system but if they have to mail in the transaction, it takes longer. always assume it will go through that day and keep the funds available to cover it. For bounced checks, they can charge up to$30 handling fee. so $5 of gas with a bad check could cost $35.
