Got my card rejected for the first time!

Post by Eleanor on Thu Sep 04, 2014 3:58 pm

It was so embarrassing! Luckily, the amount only came to £6.99, so mum (best in the world!) paid it instead, so that I can pay her back later.

Confused, as I've checked and definitely have enough money in my account. Definitely got the details right, as well. Hopefully it was just the machine!

Although I've spent a lot recently, so hopefully my bank hasn't decided it's fraudulent activity! laughing

Never mind. straight face Just checked again. Bloody Amazon! I ordered books about two weeks ago and they've only just charged me for them! That explains it.

Was it a debit card? Companies have up to 30 days to debit the amount. It happened to me once big grin

I've had that happen a few times laughing
I've had my card declined before at christmas with a message to the shop staff to contact the bank. They said there was unusual activity on the account. I'm glad they keep an eye on things like that but seriously,  it was Christmas, there is going to be unusual activity straight face

It is embarrassing! Most people will, at some point, know what that feels like, I'm sure!

I got my card rejected when trying to pay for fuel and then realised I was trying to pay with my nectar card lol

Had mine declined a few times , always through faults etc but the rest of the people in the queue don't know that . Thankfully I always have a back up card etc so never had to put the stuff back and do the walk of shame

I did once have to get the shopping put to one side while I went home to get another card. Sooooo embarrassing!
