"Run up a tab" = Mắc nợ, nợ nần chồng chất và sau này phải trả món nợ đó.

Ví dụ
They pocket their lunch money to spend on something else, and hope the school lets them run up a tab. Yep, some teenagers are scam (lừa đảo) artists.

Justus alone would run up a tab of about $975,000 over six settlements (sự thanh toán) coupled with legal fees, mostly for alleged beatings of suspects.

Known as Nigerien Air Base 201, or simply “201,” the unsuspecting (không nghi ngờ) air hub costs around $30 million a year to maintain, and will run up a tab of around $280 million by 2024.
