Cumberland Farms credit card issues

Just wanted to let everyone know that Cumberland Farms gas pumps do NOT accept credit cards with silver stripes on them. This requires you to prepay and leave your credit card behind the counter while you're out pumping gas. This means they could be writing down your number or allowing other workers to see your credit card. Their pumps do NOT take any credit card with a silver stripe on it. Only BLACK stripes. Requiring you to leave the card with them can mean a security breach for you. You don't know who's looking at your card or what they're doing with it while you're pumping gas. If you have a silver striped card, you're better off going to any other stations in town. No other stations in town or any stations out of town that I can think of refuse silver striped cards. Now that store managment has verified this is why my card does not work at the pumps, I will not be getting gas, coffee or anything else at Cumberland Farms anytime in the future. They've permanently lost me as a customer.

Well that explains why my card never worked there. I gave up trying it. Simon's lets you pump and then pay so I've been going there instead. Either there or Irving. I've never had credit card issues at either place. Only Cumberland Farms. I only tried twice and then started going to Simons.

NOT AT THE PUMP YOU DONT. HOW DO I KNOW THIS? BECAUSE I ASKED ONE OF THE MANAGERS. ITS TOO INCONVENIENT FOR ME TO GO IN WAIT IN LINE TO TELL THEM HOW MUCH GAS I WANT TO PUMP, GO OUT AND PUMP IT, AND THEN GO BACK IN AND WAIT IN LINE AGAIN TO PAY FOR IT BECAUSE THE ACTUAL PUMP ITSELF WON'T ACCEPT MY CREDIT CARD DUE TO IT HAVING A SILVER STRIPE ON IT. I WAS TOLD THE PUMP IS NOT UPGRADED TO ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS WITH CERTAIN COLORED STRIPES. I JUST PUMP AND PAY AT ALL THE OTHER STATIONS IN TOWN BECAUSE THOSE GAS STATIONS DON'T GIVE ME ANY PROBLEMS.
SO SEE? YOU DONT KNOW AS MUCH AS YOU THINK YOU DO

GAS MAN:

You missed the point. In LITTLETON, NH Cumberland Farms, I was specifically told that those pumps do NOT take cards with certain colored stripes! End of f*cking story! I don't give a crap what Cumberland Farms in other states or towns do.

This particular one does not accept my card and I know what I was told from Management.

That would be why I said I shop at any other gas station but that one.

I work for Cumberland Farms and get guff about the prepay thing all the time. But how is it even LEGAL for someone to make you prepay with your card and then hold on to it? My manager said not to hold someone's card for ANY reason, for the reason of liability and trust issues. So that's pretty INSANE that this location you talk about forces you to leave your card behind the counter. I have never heard of that in a million years. I have even had customers offer to leave their card in lieu of just giving me a pre pay amount because they're too mentally deformed to figure about how much it will take. I have politely refused this means on the ground that I am not going to be responsible for some dingbat's card and if their identity is stolen somewhere else I become part of this investigation.

Exactly. I too was told I could leave my card inside while I pumped, come back in, wait in line again and then pay for it. Not happening. I now go everywhere except Cumberland Farms for my gas.

quit bitching you cry baby. you probably did get ripped off by the clerk. i currently work at cumbys, and the only card we hold inside is a welfare card. the rest of them that wont work at a pump, you take with you and your account isnt charged until you hang up the nozzle.
you should probably call corporate and bitch to someone who willl pretend to give a fuck, being a loser on this site is not going to accomplish anything.
i hope you did get screwed by the clerk.
if you cant tell by my attitude, i work the overnights...
and people like you suck
