[Reader Submitted] Dear Editor. I just wanted to let readers know that debit cards are not always accepted as cash. This morning I went to fill up gas at the Bp station on River Avenue and gave them my debit card, hoping to get the ‘cash’ price and not the .08 cent higher price for credit cards.
However, while he filled up my car, I see I was charged the more expensive price for credit cards and asked him why that was if I gave a debit card, which is usually used as cash?
He said, sorry, we don’t accept debit. So I asked him how my card went through if he didn’t accept debit? So he said he entered it as a credit card. “Sorry” he said, and handed me my receipt.
