that's a good way to get around it, however I'm horrible at balancing my checkbook and am constantly looking at my balance online. When you preauth a pump on a credit card they ping your account for $1 to make sure funds are available, meanwhile I forget how much I pumped and 3 days later go into shock and scramble to transfer money before overdraft fees.I always pre-authorize by credit card at the pump and choose fill to avoid the slowdown and if I want less than full, say because the rate price is too high, then manually elect to stop say at $5, $10 or $15. I assume the people going to the cashier are either buying shelve items or paying cash.
Yeah the pre-limit that slows way to early is a pain.
