My credit card, with more than ample limit, was declined at Walmart. Upon a second swipe, it was approved. Why? ?

I used my MasterCard issued by Barclays Bank USA (one of the largest British banks). The credit limit was $20,500 and the available credit was $20,486. Yet my card was declined on a $6.34 purchase of snacks and fruits. Why?

    Most of the time it's because those machines act up and don't register the card properly. I see the same thing happen all the time.
