Really? I've never seen it except for the Amex charges today. I know that a few gas stations in our area do the hold charges, but I have never seen our favorite station do so, at least not that I can see on debit cards, or any of our credit card pending charges.
That's just it, I have never seen hold charges, either in pending or posted transactions - til today and only used the Amex for the first time on a gas purchase. I'm not at all worried about the CL, it won't affect it, but I hope they don't plan on holding it for too long, I'm so used to paying off as soon as charges post.
