Vacationing in the USA by car? Don’t be stumped when refueling requres a ZIP CODE.
You live in Canada and POSTAL CODES do not work with these gas pumps.
But there is an easy “work around” for the credit card ZIP CODE request…
How to enter an acceptable ZIP CODE
when using your credit card to refuel and the gas pump demands your ZIP CODE.
Enter the three NUMBERS of your POSTAL CODE, adding two 00’s. Presto! Your card will be accepted.
For example, if your POSTAL CODE is L1V 6P3, you enter 163OO as your zip code. Your credit card will be accepted and authorized.
