No need to dispute
Stopped at a Shell station I have used before and pumped $32 of gas. Amex has two pending charges for $80 from them. I thought everyone held a $1. Is it different with Amex? Do I need to dispute something? That is $160 hold for $32!
the hold will fall off in a day or so. This happens at every gas station I visit.
You cannot dispute pending charges.
Give it it a few days, they will sort out to one charge for the actual amount. This is typical for gas pump charges.
These days it is pretty common fo CC company to hold big chunk $$ for gas.
Please see my posting below about my Discover card hold $150 for the gas and lovely opinion from other members:
The hold only happens if you slide your card at the pump.
If you go inside and pay, there will be no hold.
I have had holds on Amex in excess of 100 before... Just a pending charge and will fall off as others stated albeit annoying none-the-less
I normally see $125 at RaceTrac stations here in Florida on my Amex
AMEX is the only card that does this to me, last time it was 3 days after I used at gas station.
