I can't remember exactly, but one (Visa or MC) is $50 and the other $75. I don't know about AmEx or Discover. According to the little sign on the pumps, it's Visa and MC's policy, not theirs.
I think its by the company of that gas station's policy andas for me they always asked for my zip codewhenever I used my Amex at Walmart and Shell here in CO.BTW they also asked for Zip code for the Amex gift card also?
If it's the CC and not the station, why can I go over $50 at some stations but not others?
