Thursday, 09/01/2011, alternator goes out on our family car at 8:00pm. Go to Auto Zone to buy alternator, check declined.
I have over $300.00 in the account at this time for a $133.00 check. Call Tele-check while I'm standing there as the person at Auto Zone says sometimes they get approval......nope, because Tele-check cannot "talk" to someone at my bank (hello - their closed)they can't approve. Fast forward to Monday 09/05/2011, go to Best Buy to buy a new printer. Get to cashier.....again declined.
Get home to call Tele-check only to be told that since I was declined in the last 6 days......they cannot approve my check. Even with over 400.00 in the account now, they are not allowed to over ride their "approval guidelines." Thanks, feels like talking to Peggy at USA Prime Credit (if you've seen the Discover commercials.
