Glad you've used it ok!

Not everywhere charges for using a card, it's usually a credit card that attracts charges.

I think people should check before paying with any card.

The problem is it's rarely possible to pay for things like tickets with cash so they know they can pretty much charge what they like.

I agree that it was about time Nationwide treated us the same as 'normal' customers!

I will probably stick to cash as it is something I have got used to, like the idea of having something to fall back on if I need to.

I've always had a debit card but always use my weekly cash allowance and if it's ever gone it's gone but more like there's a couple of five quid over and it goes in the pot and we start again on Friday morning with a new allowance. I'm so used to doing it like that now I don't think I want to change x

I've got an esavings account and I'll transfer anything left in the account at the end of the month and put it towards our holiday spending next year.

I've started doing the same with my main account as well - the balance of that goes into my ISA.

I have a savings account running alongside my current account and only ever keep round pounds in my current account so I always transfer the oddments to savings and that soon mounts up too x

I'm not very happy with Nationwide at the moment!

Fortunately for them I haven't tried to use the card. We have both had letters today telling us that we can't use them with our original pin numbers as we were told when they came out and they are sending us new ones out.

I almost did use it this morning - how embarrasing would that have been?

Thanks for posting that Jan, I'll wait and see whether I get one!

The letter that came with the card says the PIN will stay the same, so it'll be interesting to see what happens!

I've just phoned them to check that the letters are genuine (you can never be too careful! and I am told they are and they have had some problems. Don't think it is with everyones though.

I'm assured that the new pin numbers will be here in the next few days and in the meantime, if you want to withdraw cash, go to your branch and take a passport or driving licence with you and there should be no problems.

I used my new card to withdraw cash this afternoon and it worked perfectly with my existing PIN.

However, I do recall Barclays changing branches back in the nineties and my card did not work with the old PIN.

I was not impressed. I went out shopping today. Thankfully I didn't need to use the card but how embarrasing if I had needed to.
