FILL YOUR FUEL TANK UP WITH £1.01 ON A VISA DEBIT CARD

This works at at pay at pump. Including shell/texaco/tesco/morrissons/asda/esso etc. Your debit card must have £1.01 available on it. You must use the pay at pump and not over the counter payment. You can avoid bank charges with this as it will get you out of tight spots. Usual fuel limit is £100. This should also work with credit cards as well. It can be used to your advantage. Debits can vary from 2 days up to 7 days. You need to time the use correctly so if you are out of money the debit for the fuel hits your account on a week end. This way although you will be overdrawn you will not be hit with charges as the overdrawn day will show as the next working day. In which case you can pay money into cover it without being hit with charges. Its trial and error.

You can also fill your tank and drive off. You don't have to pay until the Police get you. Also trial and error...

You don't have any money so you can't do anything, all you can do is go for a drive. A long drive!
drive to jobseekers and pray to god you get a job within 24 hours

might be an idea for a new tv series

one man, one debit card, one vauxhall nova, only £1.01 in savings, £100 owed for petrol and only 24 hours to find and bank the money before...a fee and his mum notices her missing car

depends on your card type too, online and offline cards differ, then different banks have different limits on how much they will allow the pumps to dispense.

I think the gist of the post is that you can use your debit card even if you've got very little in your account to fill up to £100 and it'll only get charged a couple of days later (after pay-day).

Another really smart one, if you get paid on a Monday, hammer your debit card all weekend and the transactions won't happen until the Monday so you won't go overdrawn... That's why the gulf between rich and poor gets wider daily

Wouldn't it be safer paying on a credit card and paying it off 56 days later, assuming you have an iq of at least 90 and you can manage your money, ie spend less than you earn

Nah I still hold that title.

I created a thread congratulating moderators for their hard work but unfortunately it got deleted.

This also works with visa electron cards at morrisons petrol stations.

Yea. Basically what he's saying is... if you've got at least £1.01 in your account, you can fill your tank at a [email protected], and the cash won't be claimed from your account for a day or so... maybe up to 3 days sometimes.

It does work, I used to do this a few years ago when I was really stuck for cash - but as I said before, I don't recommend it. Unless you're 100% sure that you know you can get cash into your account the next day, you're running the risk of charges.

Just walk / get on a bike for the day if you're that desperate to get somewhere.

You should pitch that to Channel 5. They'd lap it up.

Anyone thought of budgeting a bit better? or is this tip for those of us who see a 24 pack of stella far more important than a heating bill?

Interesting, I can see how it could be useful but, not all pay at pumps work the same so not to be relied on. One pay at pump puts a hold of £1 on the account, then takes the full amount 5 days later. Another puts a hold of £1 on the account and then the full amount, on the same day in some cases.
One won't even accept one of my cards, regardless of whether there's £20 in there or more than £100.

This is exactly how mobile networks check your id. By placing a £1.00 debit on your card.

This will not work if you have a pre pay debit card. Also this is as a last resort or in a emergency etc. I dont think half of the people are reading this properly.

I can't be assed to do any of that, I'd rather just not waste my money and keep to a budget if I was getting low. That and take my number plates off and fill up the tank wearing a Michael Gove mask and drive off without paying.

Hows that relevant? No more relevant than saying Asda place a hold of 0.01p on your card when you place an online order :p.

If you're that stuck for cash and need fuel that much, another way is to fill whatever you need and then say you have forgot your purse/ wallet. They will give you a week to pay it but if you don't you will be passed onto a debt collection agency.
