Tesco Credit Card: not impressed

Tesco Credit Card: not impressed

So I have utilised the free 24 months 0% buying offer on my Tesco Credit Card. The deal is ending next week and I paid it all off by card today, but the payment is pending and I got the message that Tesco Bank is waiting for authorization from my bank. The thing is, it's a Tesco Bank card as well 🤣
So Tesco Bank is waiting for Tesco Bank?!
My other credit card updates instantaneously. Not sure why the delay

Hi @RickVigorous 

Yep, it does seem a bit strange Tesco Bank waiting for Tesco Bank.

I have had this before with Halifax Bank, Halifax Bank waiting for Halifax Bank.

The strange thing is the payment comes out straight away but is not allocated, its because it has to go over midnight and into another day.

It will show as paid in a day or two, that's how it is with my Tesco Credit Card when I've paid.

Morning Rick @RickVigorous 

I have had the same thing happen on Paypal Credit, when transferring money from Paypal !

A pending transaction occurs whenever the following happens: When you make a purchase to your credit or debit card, this will be pending (waiting for) overnight processing.  The following explanation was received :- 
If a transaction is made before 8.30 pm it will process overnight. Purchases after 8.30 pm will be processed the following night.
