When authorizing a card, some merchants like gas stations will pre-authorize a large amount as they do not know the final purchase price of your transaction. In these cases, they may authorize up to $75.00 which typically falls off your account within 3-5 business days after the settlement with the final amount is confirmed.
Now, we have begun crediting these authorizations within minutes of them coming through our system. As long as you have a paid account with us, such as a Shared Account with a parent or a Premium Personal Checking Account, you'll now see the hold amount return to your balance almost instantly while we wait for the final amount to be confirmed.
Of course, if you have any questions or have run into trouble while making a purchase at a gas station please contact us.
