    Card question

    Advertisements
    I used my USAA card at the store to get food and things worked fine but then I went to CVS to get meds for my husband and when I swiped my card the cashier said "You have to use a different card it says "alternate tender" "
    What does that mean?
    Why did my card work at 1 place but not another?
    My husbands card worked just fine at CVS but mine did not.

    You'd need to call your bank and ask them this question. They're the ones have have the abilityb to access to your account find out what happened...

    This happened to me but with my Chase card. There must be something about CVS, they took my Wells Fargo credit card fine. The only difference I could think of is that my Chase card is technically a debit Mastercard, but I always use it as credit.

    Alternate tender is another means of paying, such as: gift certificate, store credit, or some other non-standard form of payment. For whatever reason, it just wasn't going to accept your card.
