During the past couple of years whenever I want to get gas and pay at the pump at a lot of stations I am asked for a zip code. As a Canadian I don't have one. Some gas attendants suggested I used six zeros, but that didn't work. I called my credit card companies and they claimed to have never heard of the problem and there was nothing they could do about it. Have any other fellow Canadians faced this situation and actually were able to do something about it without getting in a lineup to hand their card over to the cashier? sad.gif

I have no problem with any type of added security to protect our credit cards. I have seen people get really irate when a sales clerk asked for an ID. I always thank the clerk for checking. However, it would be good if credit card companies and retailers would work together to find a way for our Canadian (and other) friends to be able to enter something equivalent to our zip code so that they too can have the convenience of paying at the pump. This is not rocket science. There must be a way to do this.
