What Canadians might do about nonexistent ZIP code at gas pump in U.S.
Attention: Canadians traveling the U.S. with credit cards. When fueling up at the pump you may be faced with the "enter ZIP code" demand that forces you inside to see the attendant — after all, Canada doesn't have ZIP codes. George Bliss recommends entering the numbers from your Canadian postal code followed by two zeros. For example, if your postal code is S4X 2Y3, then enter 42300. George says it works on many pumps, and saves lots of time. Thanks, George, for giving us a little more zip!
