Why can’t I use my card for gas?

Every time you use your Earnin Card to purchase fuel, gas stations will put a hold of $100 to ensure that you have enough funds in your account to pay for the actual spending. This happens because gas stations are unsure how much gas will be purchased when you first swipe your card.

The hold of $100 will remain until the transaction is settled, which may take a few days. If your available balance is not enough to cover the authorized hold amount, your card may be declined. Don’t worry, you can still use your Earnin Card to prepay the gas amount at the register before pumping.

If this is not the case, please contact our support team through chat or by calling the contact number on the back of your card.
