This is beyond a joke now. And all for what? I don’t believe we’ve had an explanation for why they do this?
I find that hard to believe. Even for purchases over €1,000? What about over €50,000?
You’d never pay such large amounts with a card. That would be refunded with a wire transfer and probably was initially paid that way too or in alternative through a Multibanco payment
I’m pretty sure I’ve paid >€1,000 by card in Portugal before.
Sure, if you buy white goods or tech but you’d get your refund in cash in those situations. I was thinking more about the 50k end of the scale
Found another one:
5462 (Bakeries) -> 5999 (Miscellaneous and Specialty Retail Stores)
It doesn’t make any sense.
