I'll start with saying I love USAA.
A friend of mine here went to purchase gasoline the other day.
She doesn't drive an extraordinarily large car. She filled it up, and used her US debit card to pay for it.
Now when I fill up my car, it usually costs about 50 euros. Or about $63.
Hers cost $70...plus another four zeros.
Yes, SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS! For ONE TANK of gas!
And you were complaining about $3-4 a gallon?
The crazy part? Her bank let it go through. And didn't put a hold on her account.
That's just nuts!
USAA put a hold on my account for a weird looking charge of just under $3. And they were right, it was a "test charge" by someone who had stolen my number.
Which is why I love USAA!
