It may or may not be that easy. Some stations want your zipcode entered into the pump as an extra security measure.
your right, I drove to Florida a few years ago and had that problem with gas stations in North and South Carolina but other places it wasn't required. However, when it's required it doesn't work for me, as we don't have zip codes but postal codes and it doesn't recognize it. They also won't let you fill it first without leaving your credit card inside as security, which was a bit of a pain and not something I'd encountered before.
However, one station I stopped at and had the problem, I started to walk to the store but this guy was checking things out and he just said, "that's okay I see your from Canada, just go back to the pump and I'll active it and you can pay after".
Just got my card. It took 6.5 weeks since the dealer verified my miles. For 11,194 miles they gave me $87.56. That works out to 0.78 cents per mile. I averaged 34mpg, this reimbursement compensates me to an adjusted ~36.8mpg. I'm pretty happy with that.
They make a big deal about saying "Enjoy $87.56 on us!" like it's some wonderful gift. This isn't FREE MONEY, it's reimbursement. That means that it is owed to us. It doesn't matter that they are doing it with no mandate or judgement against them, this saves them the legal costs of a huge class action.
They should say "Here is the $87.56 that we owe you!"
I apologize if this is old information but I contacted The customer service line to find out how often i could "reload" my debit card. They told me that once the first round of cards are issued which should be in the next few weeks , they will be sending emails with information as to how to get new payments. They said that they do not believe there will be any restrictions on frequency of reload and they also said that the cards will not be reloaded but a new card will be issues each time.
Seems pricey to me to generate new cards each time.
I for one plan to hold on to my card until I get a new one.
If I am not mistaken the cards have an expiration date, we have to use the card within one year. That's at least they way it is in the US. So how would you reload the card if it is already expired?
I would assume that with each "reload" we would get new cards.
