Why is my pending transaction different from the amount of my purchase?

Some merchants place an authorization hold on your card for a different amount than your final purchase. This is common at gas stations, car rental services, and hotels.


In most cases, the amount should be updated to the final purchase amount within a few days. If you see your pending transaction remaining for more than a week, we recommend you reach out to the merchant directly to resolve the issue.
