Sunoco / don't evet think about using them

I planned to use my debit card at a Sunoco fuel pump to fill up my tank like I usually do but unbeknownst to me the station put a $75 hold on my account (there was twice that in the account) and still declined the card.

I reran it as credit which I found out put an additional $100 hold on my account and of course didn't let me pump gas.

My bank told me I have to wait up to 5 business days for these holds to drop off - in the meantime I can't use my card for any amount even though I physically have funds in the account. I will NEVER use a Sunoco station again - I have never had this problem before, anywhere.

    its your bank that put the hold on the card, not the gas station. banks do that to ensure your balance covers the charges. pay inside first with a debit card to avoid this. If your bank holds this money for longer than 24 hours, its time to switch banks. 2 things never to use your debit card for - hotels and pay at the pump gas.
