Default "Activate New Card" in HSBC Online Banking

I just saw this button when I logged into my online banking today. Does this mean they have already begun sending the new VISA debit cards?

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. "

Thanks for taking the time to send them an e-mail. But, 18 MONTHS?!!!! I could always report my card as lost and get a replacement VISA

Yes but don't forget... all those customers... all those cards in the post... by all means, I'd rather be safe than sorry

I suspect I will get my card around 09/10 as thats when my current one expires.

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...

No, I agree with you, I have no problems with Maestro, to be honest, I cannot understand why people are getting excited about a new card, unless I have missed something.:confused:

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.
