My credit card company charges £3 every time I make a deposit to a bingo, casino or sports betting site.

Every few weeks I see "CASH ADVANCE FEE" on my credit card statement. I only use my credit card online, so I've been wondering what this charge was but never did anything about it because call centers are a pain and its only £3 right?

Anyway, turns out I'm being charged £3 every time I make a deposit to a bingo, casino or sports betting site (I think this charge also applies to poker sites btw).

Thought I would post the info but you'll all probably tell me you knew this already!

Will have to use my bank debit card from now on I guess, but I'm far more careful which sites I give my bank details to.

Yea I heard about this from quidco - when they had one of the bingo sites on quidblog with a special offer people were talking about this.

What credit card company do you use?

Same thing happened when I used my A&L credit card to deposit a tenner on a bingo site and when I asked if they would refund the "cash advance fee" they refused so I have since cancelled it in retalliation. I know just use my Barclaycard credit card as I've used it on hundreds of gambling and bingo sites and never been charged any fees.

I think the same applies for debit cards as well but don't quote me on that.

It just depends on which credit card you use. Its a trial and error process. Or just simply phone and ask beforehand.

Debit card will not charge you cash advance fees so use that. It is alot easier for withdrawing money as well.
