NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE YOUR DEBIT CARD TO A HOTEL AT CHECK IN. ALWAYS USE A CREDIT CARD. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A CREDIT CARD, USE SOMEONE ELSE'S!
My husband is out of town in Sedona since Sunday, and he gave them our debit card at check-in, and they put a $519 hold on our account, which would make our rent check not clear. Very very bad and stressful. SO I ran down to the bank and put an extra $100 in the account to make sure that the check would clear, along with the gas I pumped on Sunday, and told my husband he is NOT ALLOWED to use the debit card while he is gone... what did he do? He used it for another $15. I am now just hoping our account doesn't overdraw tonight, because I will be VERY ANGRY if it does before they remove the hold tomorrow morning. My HUSBAND will have to go down to the bank and plead for them to remove the overdraft charges because it is ENTIRELY not my fault.
Sorry for the rant post. Sympathies are always greatly appreciated.
