Round up amount when pay by credit card?!

Postby poo_power » Sun Jul 17, 2011 8:29 pm

This is the first time my total bill is being round up when I pay by credit card.

Staff at Beanstro - coffee bean n tea leaf at marina bay sands say it's their system n they can't do anything about it :rant:

Imagine how much profit they make when even the bill is one cent, they round it up to five cents :stompfeet:

huh???

i know that at supermarkets, the staff will key in the correct amount when you pay by cards. for cash, if it is $11.93, they will just collect $11.90.

I don't mind paying exact amt, but if round up, then I will prepare cash for those retailers that round up.

I guess what irks me is - when they show me the bill, the amount was not rounded up ... But when they present me my credit card bill - it's a different amount ...

If I had earlier known of them taking my money without " my consent", maybe I should just order 5 glasses of water ... :nunchuk:

Usually the credit card amount will be exact, but if you pay by cash, it will be rounded down or up. I've never come across having my credit card amount rounded in any way.

Well, the bill will never be 1 cent, would it? So how big was the bill and how much did they round it up by?
