I never use a credit card in restaurants unless I can add the tip and then swipe it myself. When they take your card to the back room, the first thing they do is place a pending charge on the card for the amount less the tip. Then, you add the tip and they make another charge against the card with the tip added to it. So, there are always 2 charges against your card, and hopefully, the first one gets removed before it changes from pending to complete. This is the way almost all restaurants handle credit card charges. I think it is a bad system.

We are set up with the credit card company to get a text each time a charge is made. It always happens immediately.

I learned about this on TOTV a while back. Thank you to whoever posted about it. The cell goes ding, on the spot.

We have never had a duplicate but I assume the cell text notification would ding twice if that happened.

I use the alert system and an email notification. Anytime someone charges my credit card or makes any transaction on my checking or investment accounts over 5 dollars, I get an email. That way, I don't have to hear the annoying text messages dinging all the time. I think most financial institutions have an alert option that you can set up online.
