When I as a Canadian buying fuel in the states and paying at the pump get asked for a Zip Code. I don’t have one. I have been told that there is a number that can be input to bypass this. Does anyone know that number?

The zip code is used as a verification connecting the user to the card. Your best bet for getting the correct answer would be asking your credit card company what you should enter.

^^^ This.

Or...

I know it's a pain but take the card inside and have the clerk run it. I know, that defeats the purpose of pay at the pump but it would probably work.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Enter the 3 numbers from your postal code followed by 2 zeros.
For example, if your postal code was M5K-1H8 you would enter 51800 as your zip.

Also be sure to call your bank or CC company before you leave.

When you try to pay at the pump there’s a much greater chance of it being flagged as a suspicious transaction.

As a pilot I’ve come across just about every potential fraud ‘flag’ there is over the years. Like paying for gas, then a few hours later try to pay for dinner a thousand miles away. LOL.
