Morning
Recently took out Virgin Atlantic credit card to get airmiles with, as seems best rewards card at the moment.. I have always bought and paid in full as dont like paying the interest! however, two transactions last week, one with chip and pin at Argos, the other with contactless at Tenpin bowling, showed up all week as "PENDING", but the pending never turned to purchase, and they have now dropped off my account. It has now been 12 days (10 working days).
i have never come across this before, and use reward credit cards for everything i buy - contactless or chip and pin. Sometimes the payment shows twice, but only one ever changes to purchased, but nothing like this before

any ideas?

    They have 6 months to claim the payment without informing you and 6 years to tell you that they require it to be paid. Most likely the transactions will appear again soon, but occasionally you get away without paying - I have one from 3 years ago that was never claimed, although still could be.

    I am sure the other transaction will soon appear.
  • I have sometimes seen that happensit takes 2 or three days for the debit card transaction to appear, but the pending credit card transaction can appear in minutes

    Sometimes it takes time to show other times it won't but just wait and see if it will be claimed like agrinnall mentioned..
