MSE News: Asda trials new temporary £99 card charge for 'pay at the pump' customers



  • Do you suppose they have watchers on MSE?!

    As hurrah for an outbreak of listening if so.
    I think there was plenty of bad press on social media that went viral.

    Serves them bloody well right. Interesting that there is a petition on against Sainsbury's changes to their pay rules. Both seem to be committing huge business gaffs just at a time when the two are consolidating :think:

    Hope is not a strategy :D...A child is for life, not just 18 years....Don't get me started on the NHS, because you won't win...I love chaz-ing!

    You know those times when you go with a mate, who uses different fuel, on the basis they've got no money so you'll do them £10 in their car and then £20 in your car, or you always fill up together/on the same card one after the other .... that's 2x £99

    It doesn't affect me - there's only one Asda I use for fuel as the two within 20 miles of me don't sell fuel ... and the one I do use is 200 miles from my house, so I use it once every 2 years or so when I'm that way and need a top up.

    Some don't have them - they're just DIY dispensers.

    I've never seen a [email protected] only petrol station.

    As has been mentioned ASDA have many of them, Blackpool Cherry Tree Rd is one I have used.

    No you are not, interest is paid on your actual balance. Santander were forced to pay back interest not paid on pending card transactions.

    True, but my actual balance should be £30 not £0.
    Also, I can't use that money should anything crop up so (potentially), I'm doubly stuffed.

    Any posts are my opinion and only that. Please read at your own risk.

    Just pay at the kiosk. Only used [email protected] a few times and each time something went wrong. This 'quicker' methods usually take longer.

    There's no kiosk at Dewsbury.
