My New Public Bank Visa Electron Debit Card

Earlier this month, Public Bank Card Centre informed me that they are upgrading all our magnetic strip cards to chip embedded cards for security reasons. I know that my card is out-dated after comparing it with my friend’s who applied for one upon my recommendation but I thought that I could live without my debit card offline and prefer not to go through the hassle of changing my card until I am forced to do so when it expires next year. Now that I am forced to change it, I would have to go through the tedious process of reverifying my card with PayPal. SIGH!

So I received my card on 21st February, 2009. I understand that this upgrading exercise will be completed by today, 23rd February, 2009. Now that the card is in my hands, I am supposed to wait for the ATM PIN which will arrive in a separate mail.

Frankly, I am not even sure if I am to use this card now or if the old card is still valid. My internet banking account still shows my old card number though and I am supposed to go to the bank to get that changed. In any case, I will only start using the card once the PIN is here so that I could get everything sorted out in one go at the bank. Luckily I am not withdrawing funds from PayPal yet. Gggrrrrrr!
With love
