Three big banks suffered technical glitches Friday that prevented customers from using their debit and credit cards.

PNC Bank and SunTrust reported issues that affected some debit and credit card transactions, and some Wells Fargo customers weren’t able to use their credit cards or access their online account.

SunTrust and PNC said service has been restored.

PNC said its problem stemmed from a service vendor technical issue that also prevented access to online and mobile banking.

A PNC spokesperson said the problems started around 6 a.m. ET and were resolved before 11 a.m. Customers were able to access their money from an ATM throughout the online outage.

USAA, a financial service provider to military members and their families, also confirmed it was having issues with some credit card transactions not going through due to problems with a third-party processor.

Wells Fargo and USAA said they were still working to resolve their issues Friday.
