So, you are in the US and pull up to the gas pump. You insert your credit card and it asks you for your Zip Code which, being Canadian, you don't have meaning that you have to walk inside like a doofus, hand over your card (always a gut-wrenching moment), fill your car and then go back inside to collect your receipt and credit card, right? WRONG!
When the screen on the pump asks for your zip code, instead enter the three numbers of your postal code follwed by 'zero, zero'.The card will be immediately approved and the pump turned on. No 'Doofus Walk' to the cashier first. It has not failed me yet in the past three weeks travelling through the US. Magic!!!

I just wish the pumps would pre-auth over $100, as the Audi takes about $120 to fill.
