Another credit card rant

2024-02-15 00:00

A few places, some varying on the circumstance, others always, have this really annoying implementation of their credit card charging system, where they won’t attempt to do it immediately, but at some later point.

I typically won’t have a lot of money in the account my card is attached to, to avoid large unexpected charges. And sometimes, when there is like hours between me going in and fixing billing details and they attempting to charge it sometimes leads to it taking forever to fix it.

I get the need for this to happen in the background, because of how slow this crap is. And I get the need of it happening in the background for recurring charges etc. But when I hit a button it should happen within minutes after I complete the authorization flow.
