Jackson, MS asked in Identity Theft and Consumer Law for Mississippi

Q: Do Sonic fast food restaurants tell the amount you have on your card, on the receipt?

Im just leaving a Sonic fast food restaurant. I placed my order & used a card to make my purchase. Before pulling up, I knew the amount that was on my card. The carhop came out & I gave a $1 tip, she asked did I pay w| card, i responded yes. She rushed back in & returned to me, saying it didnt take. She typed in her information to reswipe my card, & I seen my balance that was on my card come up while she pressed the screen very fast! I confronted her. My orignial receipt timing was different b|c my card took the first time. The receipt she brought out afterwards, had my information on it! I told her to give me that receipt also! Is this a lawsuit?

A: Not necessarily. Your best bet would be to see if perhaps the initial transaction was cancelled out. Regardless, if you review your account and see a double charge, you could reach out to the manager and see about getting a refund on one of the transactions.
