Credit Card ZIP Code Tip

Spring 2010 CSANews Issue 74  |  Posted date : May 27, 2010.Back to list

Dear Bird Talk,

Like many other people, I had the problem of not being able to use my credit card at the gas pumps in Florida because I did not have a U.S. zip code to punch into the pump. My solution was to phone MasterCard and temporarily change my billing address to my U.S. address. It took one phone call and was very easy to do. This fixed the problem. None of the many other fixes that I read about in the CSANews worked for me.

Maybe this will be of help to someone else.
