My bank has decided to change my credit card from VISA to Mastercard...
Trouble is I've booked a flight and one of the things airlines get really pissy about is turning up with a different credit card from the one you booked with. Had a long wait and was sent to wait even longer at the ticket desk last time the bank had to change my card number due to fraud. In the end I only got past check-in with a begrudging "I guess it'll be all right, but you'll have the same problem in the USA when coming back."... Which I didn't as it happens.
I guess I'll have to go the the airport even earlier.
Even more annoying the bank website won't give me a balance on either card. The new one isn't here yet but I guess it's on it's way. I wonder what happens if I don't use the new one? How long will it be before they switch off my old one. Hmmm... One more problem with this bank re credit cards and I'm switching. Now if they gave me 6 months free interest for switching over to Mastercard that would be different.
