Visa Informative - Pay at the pump
Informative. As I was logging in to my bank there was a notice about Visa - below:
Visa's "Pay At The Pump" pre-authorization hold has increased to $125 and may take up to 72 hours to release from your account."
I called Visa and this information was confirmed. They did indicate that retail locations have the option to request a lower limit, but if not requested the $125.00 hold is now the general policy.
Personally I never pay at the pump with a credit card, but thought this information may be helpful to those that do.
