    I don't know the answer to your Q, sorry - but are you sure you want to use this card to draw CASH, when you'll probably be paying 35% or so from the day you draw it out?
    Haven't you got a debit card to use for drawing cash?

    You can use the card at a cash machine which has the mastercard sign displayed.

    Follow this to find one.

    It never surprises me when things have to be left overnight to update. Not as many things work in real time as people expect.

    The purchase worked, but a purchase with an offline card is liable to go through without authorisation. The last thing they want to do is re-shelve a trolleyful of groceries.

  • Why on earth did they say try getting cashback? You can't get cashback on a credit card!
