Learned something new at Flying J this weekend
I know that many of us use Pilot/Flying J locations to fuel when on the road. One of the ongoing issues I've had is that Flying J adds a $500 hold on your standard credit card if you pay at the pump. It became a problem for me coming home yesterday when my credit card company locked my card after seeing that $500 hold.
Anyway, after I got the card reactivated, I went inside and prepaid for fuel on my same credit card. By going inside, they only ding your card for the amount you choose to prepay and then refund your unused balance directly to your card within 24 hours. Sure is better than that $500 hold if you can spare the time to go inside and pay.
Anyway, I thought I would share just in case anyone else has had issues with Pilot/Flying J's high credit card holds.
