This way you're paying 15 cents a transaction, wouldn't it be better to just go to a gas station and drip some gas?

just swipe 1 cent 5 times... even if you dont get the 5 pennies i dont think youll mind :)

fyi even when they did charge the 15c you just wouldnt get any money until the transaction was over 17 cents...

I don't think that's smart. Many have reported that the charges must be a significant amount, maybe more than a dollar. Just buy 5 20 oz. sodas and stop trying to make a big deal. It's more of a big deal what I had to go through after trying this at gas stations with 30 cents and not having the transactions go through because they got a fraud alert placed on my account. Huge hassle.

Never happened on my Chase accounts. I did go through this with my Citi cards when I made two gas purchases at two different places on the same day. Anyone else?

To clarify, I don't do more then two squeezes of gas at the same gas station - on the same day - on the same card.

Most gas stations (at least in CLE) cut you off at 2 or 3 gas transactions on the same card.
I'd have to search for the thread, but I think I did 18 gas transactions at Sam's Club in 1 shot before it triggered a Chase fraud alert.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

has anyone used this for transactions to self? (1 cent swipes for debit cards or to hit spending thresholds at %3 loss)?
does it get flagged?
