Re: EBT and Debit Down For Major Grocer
links? is it even reported? where did you get the word on the other places?

and is it just the one store, or all of their chain?

That's what I'm wanting to know.

Just tried to use mine here at Publix at the Fishhawk location in Lithia FL and Debit was down. Could only use credit.

Same here in Connecticut. BIG Y super market. Credit/Debt and EBT were down. They were making people fill out slips with your CC# on it, address, DOB, SS# in order to make a purchase.

Also, at local gas stations. Gas pumps work with a CC or Debt, but can't buy anything at the cash register because those are down.

if we are actually looking at a 'bank holiday' here, fund availability will be restricted soon.

wooo i am on such a crash course with this stuff. no pun intended.
 Quoting: Anne O'Mally


I understand!

Of all the doom scenarios economic doom is probably one of the most boring but it could turn into something big if WE the people let it.

For what it's worth I just pulled out some cash from an ATM about and hour ago and and put $40 in my car about 1.5 hours ago (as debit). And our CC machine at work was fine all day today.

oh it won't be boring, it'll be full on war in the cities. i definitely do not want to stick around my neighborhood in the event of that happening.

This is a simple preview of what it would be like in a real crisis where electronic funny money no longer works, and for a while it will only be cash, and in a prolonged crisis it will be gold, silver, barter, and labor.

Pop quiz:

Archimedes screw
Nitrogen fixation
Hypothermia
Companion planting
Compound fracture
Ballistic coefficient

If you can't reasonably explain one out of the following six list of terms and use them in a real-life setting, you are useless in an economic collapse. Good day.

Re: EBT and Debit Down For Major Grocer
Don't forget the jobless claims spiked to 386,000 yesterday. And these are from people who JUST lost their jobs....

I am beginning to think they are trying to weed out the people who abuse their EBT.

I get $200 a month in food stamps. Go ahead and hate me for it. I live in a house with nine other people. Yearly income from everyone here is over $120,000 yet the state still says I can have food stamps. Look at it this way. The taxes this family pays in being returned in the form of food stamps.

BIG Y super market. Credit/Debt and EBT were down. They were making people fill out slips with your CC# on it, address, DOB, SS# in order to make a purchase. In Connecticut. So it's safe to say this is happening country wide.

I think you missed my point. An economic crash would be brutal for most people in the western world, HOWEVER compared to meteor strikes, sun brazing, plague or EMP doom WE AS A PEOPLE CAN WORK AROUND economic doom if we choose to. The other scenarios you cannot.

We are all the result of our past choices meeting the future.

Customers at most Hannaford Supermarkets are unable to use credit or debit cards to pay for their purchases because of a computer problem that began this morning.

EBT should DIE
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17022613


don't blame people for being poor, blame the banksters & outsourcing for putting so many in that position.
 Quoting: Anne O'Mally


I dont blame the single mothers looking for a way to make ends meet while keeping their kids fed. But i do blame the hoards of people who ABUSE the shit out of EBT, i promise 90% of the EBT recipients are 100% complacent getting free shit.

EBT is a CHOICE for most that use it, long gone are the days where being on public assistance was something the majority didnt want to be on and WORKED to get off it.

Tell me why the fuck the GAS STATION accepts EBT? they buying gas with it? Or im supposed to believe they are grocery shopping there? Gimme a break

I've been reading this all day now.

This seems to be a problem on the EAST coast.

There doesn't appear to be any problem today out here in the southwest.

I do thank you all for your postings as I went to the

grocery store and finished up using every last cent I had

in case this becomes contagious and does move to the southwest.

Thank you all for your input.

BTW.............there is NO Publix out this way.........and no Megiers and NO Aldies or any other of the places you noted as being down.

Re: EBT and Debit Down For Major Grocer
I just used my BofA debit card at a local market.. everything was fine. About 3-4 hours ago.

Was before the news of the actual downgrades was announced.

Going to go to the closest BofA branch since it is business closing time and seee if I can withdraw anycash from the atm.

Will report back in about 30mins to an hour to let you know what happened.

I don't worry about much (not worried as I keep very little cash in banks, only enough for e-transactions, and have a nice stockpile of copper, silver and gold) but given the recent news I'm thinking bank holidays.

Stay tuned.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10097155



Decided to wait until after 2000 PST. Was allow to withdraw the remaining balance of the account minus $7.00.

Will bookmark this thread, going to make deposits and withdrawals over the weekend through to tuesday.

Will be doing the same with my accounts held at US Bank also. Will update if anything is amiss with my accounts.
