Petrol before payday loophole closed

Posted 1st Jul 2021
Luckily I haven’t been in a position that I’ve had to use it for a while, however…

If you were skint the day before payday but had a pound left in your account you could go to the petrol pump and get upto £99 of fuel using the self service as the card would only check for a £1 available balance and then remove the correct amount the following day. Not anymore it would seem.

This is from Barclays but says Visa so presumably all across the board.
