Gift Card Update

YourPalWill | Feb 18, 2004 12:30 PM

About a week ago, I raised the issue regarding a gift card that I bought at an LEYE restaurant here in Chicago with my bank debit card.

If you will recall, I was disturbed that the authorization went through at the cost of the gift card plus 15%.

A number of people explained to me that the restaurant's credit card machine was always programmed to run a tab plus 15% to account for tip.

That was the case here. When the charge went through, it went through at the price of the gift card only.

I felt obligated to vindicate Lettuce on this one.
