When you use your credit card for a purchase, the merchant will send your card number and purchase amount to the bank for an approval or an authorization. This authorization or pending transaction generally confirms that an account is open and the purchase amount is acceptable. The purchase amount sent for authorization varies by merchant type. Most merchants will request an authorization for the exact purchase amount and others may send an estimate that is more or less than the actual purchase amount.
It may take several business days for the actual purchase amount to replace the authorized amount on your account. Generally, the final purchase is deducted from your account within three business days. If the authorized amount does not match with an actual purchase amount within three business days, it will be removed from your account.
A pending transaction is deducted from your available credit but is not included in your account balance. The amount of the transaction will be added to your account balance and post to your account when the merchant determines the amount.
An authorization may vary from the final purchase amount in situations where there is an estimated authorization amount or a tip is involved.
When you swipe your card at the gas pump, the station generally requests an authorization to confirm that your account is open and active. Most authorization amounts for pay-at-the-pump gas purchases are set at $1 to $125 until the actual purchase amount replaces the authorization amount on the account. The actual purchase amount can take 2 hours to 3 days to replace the authorization amount.
Hotels are allowed to request an authorization for an amount based on your length of stay, all applicable taxes, plus any additional expected dollar amount(s). Cruise lines and car rental agencies also follow this practice. Upon making your reservation, we suggest you ask for the total amount of the authorization.
A pending transaction cannot be disputed because it isn't final. The transaction may change or may never post to your account if the merchant does not finalize it. If you have questions about or do not recognize a pending transaction, check with any secondary or authorized users on your account to see if they made the transaction. If you still have questions, contact the merchant for details. Once the transaction has posted, if you still do not agree with the transaction, please contact Cardmember Service at 800-328-4850.
