Wired Plastic holding authorizations for 15 days, double charges
I would not recommend this card.I have had several occurrences where card fails when used, then it is swiped again and works and it places two charges on authorization.
This is fine if like a normal debit card, but they hold authorizations for 15 days!! They claim it is Visa's policy but that is bs having had several debit cards in my life. The only way to free up your money is to have the merchant contact them with you and remove the authorization. Right now I have a new $120 authorization on my card that will not fall off for another 15 days, along with the actual $120 charge, so $240 all together.
I would recommend Netspend over Wired anyday.
They don't seem to understand the conflict that occurs when $100s of dollars of authorizations sit on your card for half a month, not allowing you to access your money when you need it.Beware.
Monetary Loss: $500.
