Well, this is a new one for me. Lately when I attempt to use my credit card (Visa) at various gas stations here in Hickory, NC the card gets rejected once I enter my zip code. The screen on one pump even said my zip code wasn't legitimate although I've been using it for years.

The fact that my zip code is from South Dakota and I'm in NC may have something to do with it. The clerk at one station even mentioned that other out-of-towners were having the same difficulty.

It's a real pain to now have to pay inside the station at the register, guesstimating how much fuel I'm going to use. So far I've been pretty good at this. I wonder if this is the same situation in other states? Pay at the pump is now pain at the pump! Are any of you finding the same situation?

Never happened to us, I put in the ZIP code and pump gas, every so often I have to swipe twice to fill up.

Sometimes, you need to tell your CC company you're traveling or it rejects the OK for out of state or sometimes over-high charges.

Happened to us in Utah when our ZIP code is Florida. We called and the rest of the trip, no problems.

I've never had a problem, I just enter the zip code and pump gas.

It's never been necessary to go inside to pay.

It is looking for the zip code of the billing address, make sure you use the correct one.

The matching is to the billing address of the credit card. If you use a mail service or Post Office, that ZIP is the one you need to use.

I never had that problem before, and I drive all over the USA. perhaps your bank ( visa ) is a small or local credit union?

but presumably that same zip code has been used in other states and it went through? or is this the first time that that type of check has been made?
