My bank account was charged $25 after putting my debit card information in and receiving error messages five times. How do I get my $25 back?

When putting in my debit card information, I kept receiving an error message. I tried five times then finally gave up. Now I have a $25 hold on my bank account. I would like to receive my money back and sign up a different time.


Thank you for posting here in the Community, photosbybriannan.

I can help you in resolving the error you've encountered with your subscription.

The $25.00 charge from your bank is an authorization hold. You'll encounter this when there's an error when trying to subscribe. If you've subscribed successfully, only one payment will go through and post to your bank, the other four will drop-off after 3-7 banking days.

For your subscription, do you encounter an error "Payment auth failed due to invalid AVS?" If yes, it’s a protection that your bank provides you to avoid fraudulent purchases with your card. This is usually caused by the address information you have provided. It's either the address, or the zip code, both should match.

You may try going to USPS and look up your address at!input.action. They will display your address using the standard abbreviations and formatting, that might be what your bank is expecting.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
