this is messed up I no longer use my debit card for any kind of purchases because they just screw us over. Can't they at least give us rewards for our debit card purchases? Nooooo they won't well screw them I'll put it on credit.

Plus you don't get the same fraud protection as credit cards so if someone gets ahold of your debit card number and has a little shopping spree you may be held responsible.

I never use debit cards anymore. THEY'RE NOT SAFE!

Why banks continue to do this boggles my mind. Consumers shouldn't be geting screwed over by their banks like this when they pay with a debit card.

The other reason I don't use debit at the pump is you don't have anywhere near the same fraud protections that you do with a credit card.
