    From a message from HSBC to me:

    "Please note that the new Visa/Master debit cards will only be available towards the end of 2008. The re-issue of cards to existing customers will take place gradually over a period of approximately 18 months.......

    I confirm, the new functionality to activate a debit card via Personal Internet Banking was launched in preparation for the introduction of this service early next year. "

    When I phoned HSBC the guy said don't worry about the "Activate New Card" link as it's part of a new "system" which hasn't actually gone live yet. Seems a bit rubbish to show the link if it doesn't do anything, yet...

    I'm afraid I do not, it is a lump of plastic, that's all, as long as my existing card works, I am quite happy with it.


    Not quite sure how anyone can actually " love " a bit of plastic TBH.

    Whatever floats your boat, I guess.
