Would you be pissed over $.59?

Posted by   + Show Post

I am. 

We ordered pizza for my son's 14th birthday.  The total came to $45.41.  I put a $4.00 tip to be added to my total debit amount.  I was just looking at my bank statement and Pizza Hut ran it for a straight $50.00.

That is fraud. I do not care if it is only $.59.  They have no right to change the amount I authorized.  If they made an extra $.60 per customer, they would be raking in illegal money. If it was the delivery driver, they are a thief altering tips.  Either way, I am pissed.

I wouldn't have enough spare time in my life to notice. If by freak chance I did notice I certainly wouldn't think twice about it.

Yes I would over principle! It also pisses me off when at a restaurant and I pay with cash and they give me change in only bills. When it should be change and bills. Their tip reflects it!

You should definitely call them. I wouldn't be "pissed" but I wouldn't pay more than what I authorized. But, the way restaurants authorize credit cards is different from how other companies do it. It still may come in at the right amount. I think you are supposed to wait a week. Which, I guess is pretty much now. Definitely call.

Honestly, I would've laughed about it and then forgot about it. I don't let petty things like that affect me. But... That's just me. I have much bigger problems to worry about than $.59. Lol!


What if every time you swiped your card you were charged an extra $.59?

Theft is theft.

At what amount are you willing to say, "No"?

 My bank shows a definite difference as to what has cleared all the way and what hasn't.  The charge was on the 14th and it fully cleared on the 16th.
