These card readers always have but until a few months ago target had it disabled to push wallet. They made a big deal about accepting Apple Pay a few months back when they finally enabled it. A better response is “we’ve been having issues with NFC payments today”If they do the "but it works everywhere else" say the card reader doesn't have NFC technology. I have no clue if that's true or not, but the lack of function means it's a reasonable explanation.
My card was declined because the bank froze it because someone bought gas many miles away.*And sometimes it hasn't declined due to money but because the bank froze it for other reasons. My daughter's card once was frozen because she bought gas 25 miles from home. Didn't know until she tried to buy lunch later that day.
Too bad they didn't get a free ride in a police car, and a few nights of free room-and-board at the county jail.To the guest attempting to shoplift a $350 vacuum. You've been denied. Hopefully, you don't come back to try it again, AP probably has you on their watch list.
I've learned to contact the card issuer about our travel plans when we go to British Columbia or Oregon even on a long day trip to a border town (Vancouver BC or Portland). Ironically if we drove over to Spokane or Pullman, within our state, we wouldn't need to contact them.What made me pissy is that she has bought stuff from twice as far away and her bank didn't flag it...but because we live close to the state border the bank assumes that's not a place that anyone can possibly live close to and flagged by state rather than distance. If it had been 25 miles as the crow flies it would have made a lot more sense than hopping over the state line while traveling on a major US highway is a no-no, but going twice as far the opposite direction was cool.
Yep, I always find out in Mt. Vernon on my way back to Seattle and desperately need fuel that my card has been frozen. Sorry Chase I didn't spend that much up north. I went up once and bought nothing but a Chap Stick(no really!) and that got my card frozen. Then the one time I bought almost a grand worth of hockey gear - not a peep..I've learned to contact the card issuer about our travel plans when we go to British Columbia or Oregon even on a long day trip to a border town (Vancouver BC or Portland).

App Store will always identify itself as Apple, I’m pretty sure.I got notified by a card issuer about a couple of free games purchased from a "mobile app store" (unspecified which app store or which games). Since I had downloaded a couple of games from iTunes I said they were legit and didn't think anything of it.
Turns out it was a test to see if it could get through fraud detection. Couple grand of plane tickets and too much time spent on the phone with my card issuer later, it was resolved, but I learned my lesson on that one.
The bike aisle is cleaned out empty.I'm stocking in frozen. This guest stands in the aisle with his kids. I'm minding my own business because I am trying to not make contact unless necessary. Guest comes up and looks at my cart. He tells his daughter "she hasn't worked out the pancakes yet" everything on my metro says "Amys" "Birdseye" "Ore-Ida" clearly on the boxes. I tell the guest sorry I don't have pancakes on this cart. We have the mini pancakes and that's it. So does this guy take my answer and leave....no-one minute later here he comes down the aisle. Still no pancakes...
Had he asked me if we had anymore. I would have scanned it to find out. He assumed and promised his daughter. So he got an assumed answer.
