I once had $56 worth of free sushi..

I went to a sushi place paid with my discover card. My friend also went with me and paid with discover as well since it was 5% for restaurants. . So days later I see there was a pending charge from the sushi place-so keep in mind my balance at the time was zero (0, nada) so weeks later my statement closed and nothing was charged I was like "fffuuu free sushi?" so then I messaged my friend and asked him to check his account since mine closes about a week sooner than his.. so he told me he had nothing pending and nothing was posted. . Guess free sushi for both!

This was like a year ago.. so yeah its a done deal haha

Would sound like the merchant never batched their transactions, just like some time last year in my university's dining place and other places.

After a specific time they don't batch I suppose, the merchant will no longer be able to capture the transaction and will eventually lose the money.
