Ask Stash

Can I use my debit card at a gas station?

Yes. Remember to select ‘Debit’ when you use your debit card at the pump. You can also pay inside at the counter.

Please note: Gas stations can hold up to $100.00 when you swipe your card at the pump because they do not know the final amount of the sale. Even if your amount is smaller, these charges can be alarming. However, the hold usually clears to the correct amount in 2-4 business days. 

Avoid large holds by paying for your gas inside the station at the register, not the pump.
