Beware!! I went to the Tidy Up Car Wash beside Wal-Mart and used my debit card for the $5.00 automatic wash. I pressed the option for a receipt which showed a $5.00 charge to my card. When I logged on to my bank account this morning there was a charge for $10.00 from Tidy Up Car Wash. Does anyone know who owns it? This happened to anyone else?

I have never heard of such stupidity. Yes, people write checks for 75 cents too but that too is dumb. If you can't afford to keep enough change around to wash your car, then don't wash it. They installed that debit card machine there to rip off people like you who don't have any common sense. Sounds like it worked! Get a brain!

Ok so you wouldn't use a debit card to wash your car. I get it! But frankly I don't give a shit about how you choose to pay for things! I posted this to let people that do use that service know to watch their charges so they don't get ripped off as I did. You have no idea the situation in which I chose to use my debit card for the car wash. That I was inside Wal-Mart when someone sat a milkshake on top of my car & it tipped over spilling all over my windshield so that I couldn't see, that I only had 15 minutes before I had to pick my child up from school across town, that I had no cash or change on me, and not enough time to get some before school let out! But yet you chose to give me your rude and unnecessary opinion on my payment method. Ok thanks, I now know that you think its dumb to use a debit card at the car wash! Good to know jackass.

It sounds like you had a bad day that day. I don't blame you a bit for using whatever you had to get your car washed. If you have a debit card, use it, that's what it's there for.

You tell them! I have had to use debit card at sonic for a coke because I was in a hurry to get my daughter to her doctor's appointment. Some of us don't have the luxery of time to run to the bank and draw out cash. And what would be the point anyways? It comes from the same place.

I too awhile back went to wash my car. Paid for the deluxe car wash (or whatever the most expensive one is) and it was still dirty and had soap spots all over it. I called the guy several times and still waiting on my phone call back. I haven't used it since and won't. If that's how the owner treats his customers, then I can solve that by using someone else.
