If you have the vacation funds saved allready you can put rental cars and motels Zync and pay before the duie date.
Still waiting for the Zync But hence my recent App spree.
weird, i've only ever had $1 authorizations from gas stations around here.
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.
those two big pre-auths were from a small gas station. mobile, shell and hess have always pre-authed $1.
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.
I live in GA and have used my Amex and they pre authed $125 , When I use anything with a Visa od MC logo on it they only pre auth for $ 1.00 , So I have no Idea what to think . I just pay cash now !!
Thats where they get us with all the cash back rewards at gas stations the pre-auths lol
