Because of this and the fact that, with Starling, I expect my balance to be my REAL balance and not my “perhaps balance maybe for the mean time”, after years of using pay at pump, I only ever go to real people now, since joining. Maybe I’m keeping them in a job too? Although that’s not really why.
I know in some instances, like my local asda being entirely automated or sometimes other places at night, it isn’t possible but I try to avoid that. Also, with Tesco+ allowing me to buy groceries or fuel up to £250 with only my phone and without needing my wallet, and taking the CORRECT money out instantly (and with the lovely Starling instant notification on my watch) I tend to use that anyway.**
I think it’s ridiculous that it takes so long to sort out how much you spend on fuel in this day and age!
Does using the phrase “in this day and age” (at 38) automatically make me really old?
