We are currently experiencing an issue with visa debit card transactions. Cardholders attempting to make PIN-based purchases with their Advantages Visa® Debit Card™ are getting declined. Visa is estimating that the issue will be resolved by tomorrow, October 16th.  We encourage you to select “Credit” at checkout and sign for your purchase so that it does not get declined.


We apologize for the inconvenience. We are currently working with Visa to get this resolved as quickly as possible.
