Penny on October 15, 2019

When you use your debit card at a vending machine or kiosk in Canada. The Pending Authorization hold that you see on your bank account is $1.50. That will fall off when your charge goes through.

Colin on October 16, 2019

Paid $4:19 for key on key cutting machine at Walmart Shawnessy Calgary. Subsequent charge of $1:50... ????? On top WHY..

Jean-Pierre on October 24, 2019

Je comprends: minute Key charge 1.50$ supplémentaire pour paiement par carte de crédit. Cette information n'est pas transmise à l'utilisateur. J'appelle cela du vol, peu importe le montant. Donc facturation à chaque nouvelle clé de ce 1.50$ alors si vous avez 4 clés !

I just figured out this charge on my November statement after I made a number of calls to different merchants in Calgary. It was for a Self-Serve Key Cutting Vending Machine at Walmart Bow Trail SW store. I just wish they make it more specific than Soda-Snack Vending Toronto, ON.

It looks like SODA SNAC VENDING is vending company with a far reach. Many types vending machines and vended products. They are clearly taking advantage of many people via theCC collection due to automatic pre authorization, which ultimately get charged to your card whether you get the vended product or not
