Did you know that the place that you use your edd card to put gas can put a $75.00 hold on your card and it remains there for 3 to 4 days against your balance.
That is a function of the gas station, not the card. Some gas stations just pre-authorize for just $1. They do this because they want to make sure that the card is good. Same thing would happen if you used it to check into a hotel.
The BofA EDD card is a Pre-paid Debit Card.
I use my card at the pump all the time. No holds on my account. Maybe it was a shady gas station
Gas stations usually put holds of either $1 or $75. That is why I usually pay cash instead of being subjected to those holds.
Holy! No I didn’t know that. I never noticed any type of hold on my card where I get gas but I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for that. Good grief!
HEY BEEN SURFING THE WEB DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO OBTAIN A FREE GAS CARD FROM EDD THEY WERE SUPPOSE TO PUT A NOTICE SEVERAL MONTHS AGO WITH OUR BI-WEEKLY REPORTS.
