    My wife has got a post office card and loaded money onto it, I have never used anything of the sort so am I right in thinking that the rate you get when you spend on it depends on that day, just like if you were changing sterling to euro on different days of the week with different rates?

    To be fair, if you take advantage of the FairFx extra £35 worth of currency offer and use the card optimally, it's actually a good choice.

    I have done this before, I closed the account and then try to open a new account again, to get the bonus. I did not get the card, neither do they bother to communicate with me.

    Are you stating that you paid them £500 and they didn't supply you with a card? I think not.
    It's never nice when someone tries to play the system in a way that is simply not sustainable.

    I mean I got incentive using promotional offer a few years ago. I withdrew all of the money and then I close my FairFx account as I have other better mean of withdrawing cash in foreign currencies. Last year there were similar offer I tried applying new one online the new card never arrived. Probably they recosgnise my name.

    Well, keep in mind this is an MSE forum. I wonder if you have come accross the things like stoozing, switching incentives, open multiple accounts, etc. This is the place where people get info like this.

    Getting such a card is a mistake in any case, with awful PO exchange rate and various fees. It's cheaper to use a regular bank debit card which has fees for overseas use.
