Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the balance of the funds available on your Card, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees.
Merchant Authorization Holds
With certain types of purchases (such as those made at restaurants, hotels, gas stations when you “pay at the pump”, or similar purchases), your Card may be “preauthorized” for an amount greater than the transaction amount to cover gratuity or incidental expenses. Any preauthorization amount will place a “hold” on your available funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase. Once the final payment amount is received, the preauthorization amount on hold will be removed. During this time, you will not have access to preauthorized amounts. If you authorize a transaction and then fail to make a purchase of that item as planned, the approval may result in a hold for that amount of funds. We will only charge your Card Account for the correct amount of the final transaction, however, and will release the hold on any excess amount when the transaction finally settles. You do not have the right to stop payment on any purchase or payment transaction originated by use of your Account. You may not make preauthorized regular payments from your Card Account.
