are they stopping maestro or summit?
same company (sort of) and all that.
welcome to the new world. As soon as your current maestro runs out you get a Visa. I have to wait until December, but I might just say I lost my card or something.
When travelling my card got blocked so many times. When I used my Visa out there I didn't even get bothered by the bank.
There's a pattern forming. To me the word 'Maestro' is permanently twinned with the colour beige.
Genuinely gutted when HSBC switched to Visa Debit.
who'd drive a beige Triumph Dolomite so this isn't a surprise.

to Peterborough in the 1950s?
Roundabout. Peterborough. Do you see?
Is Peterborough thought of as being particularly roundabouty?
I mean it has the parkway, but it's hardly Milton Keynes.
I SHALL DEFEND PETERBOROUGH UNTIL MY DEATH
(I'll only accept payment in postal orders, thank you)
UG... LETTER FROM BANK... HGHGMM NEW CARD... VISA... NO NEED TO READ REST... STRANGERS ON INTERNET MUSIC FORUM WILL EXPLAIN.
Sorry Michael, but that is funny.
i mean, the letter doesn't actually say
'we are breaking with maestro because it isn't very good and you can't use it everywhere so here is a new card'
it just says...'hey pal, new card, use this instead'....no real explanation.
hence the post. also, people on here know things (no really, they do) and everyone has a different take on things. if i thought i would get exactly the same response as the letter, i wouldn't have bothered. it's the same reason i ask people on here about films, for example, when i could just stick to the review.
but...y'know...I DON'T WANT TO STAND IN THE WAY OF GOOD COMEDY...I LOVE A LAUGH, ME.
Maestro is shit, as soon as you venture out of europe you're fucked.
SEE....SEE ELTHAM....YOU DON'T GET SWEARS IN A LETTER YOU SCHMUCK...
