|What are Comdata Cards?
||Comdata cards come in two types depending on your
classification with Harris.
- Owner Operators are given Cash Cards. These cards can be
used for getting access to Load advances for your Trip Expenses.
- Your Drivers License information is entered into the Comdata
Computer when you are set up.
- The first time you use the card you must assign your own PIN ( a
Four Digit Personal Identification Number). To register your
PIN call the 800 number on the back of your card and follow the
instructions that you are given over the telephone. You will
use this PIN for Comcheck requests after that when it is
- Any time you are dispatched on a load and request an advance, the
amount will be loaded to your account at Comdata. Your Comdata
account works just like a regular checking account except that you
cannot overdraw the account.
- When you use all of the money in the account you have to request
that an additional amount be put into the account by Dispatch in
Monroe. You should treat the account like a checking account
by keeping a record of both the deposits (advances) you have
requested and withdrawals (Comchecks) that you have made.
- Additional money will only be put into the account based on loads
assigned to you.
- Comdata allows two (2) free withdrawals from your account for
every amount that is loaded, however, anytime another advance is
loaded the number is reset to a maximum of just two(2).
- Additional withdrawals from you account over the allowed number
will cost you one dollar ($1.00) per withdrawal.
|How do I use my Comdata Cash Card?
||There are Three ways to use The Cash Card:
- Locate a Truck Stop with a Comdata Scanner. You may have to ask
the Clerk if they have a Comdata Scanner. Flying J Truckstops
do not accept Comchecks. Tell the Clerk that you are using a Comdata
Cash Card, and how much money you would like to receive. The
clerk will scan the card and verify any necessary information.
A Receipt will be printed by the Truckstop Terminal detailing your
purchases and any cash received. The process works just like a
regular credit card purchase in most instances. Do not give
out you PIN number to a person for any reason. Also be sure to
save the receipt as it will be your record of fuel and fuel related
purchases that were made.
- You can dial the telephone number on the back of your card and
request a Comcheck. This requires that you have blank Comcheck
in your possession. This is an automated system and you will
be communicating with a Computer. All responses are entered on
the telephone keypad. This is what a Comcheck looks Like:
You will be required to enter your Card Number and you PIN.
You will also be asked for the amount of the Comcheck.
Remember, Dollar entries are made without a decimal point,
$100 would be entered as 10000 #. The Amount you request will be
immediately deducted from your Comdata Account. If you ask for
more than is is your account the transaction will not be completed.
Finally you will be asked to enter the Check number which is in the
upper right hand corner. After a short wait the computer will
respond , "your transaction is complete". Your Comcheck is
now valid for the amount requested and can be used just like a
- Your Card can also be used at the CIRRUS ATM Machines that
are Nationwide. Place your card in the slot and enter your PIN when
requested. Please be aware of two issues when using the
CIRRUS Network, there will be an additional charge by the bank that
placed the ATM and possibly by a Clearing Bank in addition to any
Comdata Charges involved. Also, unauthorized use of your card
will not be refunded.
