Re: Gas station just pre-authed my AMEX for $500!

I've only ever seen 2 pre-auth for odd amounts like $55 and $77 on my zync, and I've been using it for 100% of purchases for 3 months now.  Do some stations NOT pre-auth?  I fill-up at costco about 95% of the time...so not sure if that has anything to do with it.

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Get those baddies removed!!!

I had that happen to me but not for that much. I used my Macy's Amex to buy about $10 worth of gas at Bucees.. They did a pre auth of about $100 that took about a week to fall off.
