I have a question regarding authorisation amounts from online retailers and how they appear on my monzo account. I have noticed that some companies use the ‘‘active card check’’ notification with no amount being taken from the account, others debit £1 and quickly credit back £1 at the same time instantly and lastly ASDA, whenever I order my grocery shopping they pre-authorise 0.01 every time I amend my online order and that 0.01 doesn’t get refunded until 30 days have passed!!!
Is there any way around it? It’s rather annoying what happens with ASDA. I end up having a lot of withheld £0.01 amounts for at least a month. Anyone else having that issue?
