Thank you for joining and welcome to ATS! We have wonderful folks here, and it can be fun and even a challenge.
I dont go to GLP, but sometimes I will check something out if someone from here mentions something.
As far as etiquette, ask the staff, or post a thread with your question, and members will pop in and be happy to help you. I myself end up half of the
time posting a thread in the wrong section. And I am happy a member catches that and lets ATS know to move the thread to the proper area.
Back on topic, debit/credit cards AS WELL AS Welfare cards is something I definately do a heads up as soon as my card is not able to go through. Now
sometimes if a debit/charge is used alot, the magnetic strip gets scratched to the point the machines cant read it. But if you know your card is good,
then you cant ignore something like that when the card is denied or has to be repeatedly swiped.
I say, if folks are not stocked up with foods (dont forget the T.P, personal hygienes, meds, etc.), and you have had some difficulty with your
bank/cards, purchase some of or most of what you need NOW and use a credit card if you have one. If things are just a temporary glich for now, then at
least you can pay off your charge amount as soon as your friendly bank is back online/on track.
thank you for visiting my thread
