MASTERCARD is experiencing some technical difficulties in the United States.
The credit card company started having problems on Thursday, May 21, 2022.
Is Mastercard down?
According to Downdetector, the outage began hitting users starting around 1:30am ET on Saturday, May 21, before over a thousand more users reported outages until around 10:00pm ET.
The outlet claims nearly 62 percent of Mastercard users are having issues with purchases, with 24 percent of reported issues being related to payments.
Meanwhile, 14 percent of users reported having trouble accessing the site.
On Sunday, May 22, a Mastercard representative told The Sun that the network was operating normally.
What did people say about the Mastercard failure?
A user took to Downdetector on Saturday to warn others: “Currently no credit or debit cards are working at Stop n Shop in NJ, USA.”
Some users complained on social media: “Okay, how the hell hasn’t @Mastercard still fixed this credit card issue? It’s been 11 hours and they still haven’t fixed it. Ridiculous.”
Some even found humor: “It put me off my impulse buys, took it as a sign to buy gold and hide it in my mattress.”
Others shared their experiences: “All my MasterCards have been declined. Lots of credit and money in my account. The gas station attendant had to track me down for $5 gas. This caused an unnecessary and embarrassing episode.”
