Card Does Not Reload in USA.

published

Im in the US on holiday. For 2 weeks I have not been able to reload my card. I have had 3 phone calls with customer service. Total of 1.5 hours on the phone. They said they would escalate my problem and be in contact by email or phone. That was 24 hours ago, I havent heard anything. Theres no money left on the card. So Im now being charged through the nose to use my credit card. Theres massive problems with Aust Post Travel card and it doesnt appear to be getting addressed.

I couldn't log in to my card when I was in US. Didn't have a mobile and couldn't access a phone to ring an international number as I didn't want to ask where we were staying. Twittered Australia Post they weren't interested. Made other arrangements and on return went to postoffice. Not interested. Rang 1800 number. Had to consistently repeat myself because the customer service people seemed to have trouble understanding me. As it turned out the post office had input my mother's maiden name in their database incorrectly. Transferred the last of my cash and paid $10 for the privilege. Qantas card is supposed to be good.

Literally the worst travel card you can get. I wish i looked at the reviews before using it

published

I am doing a semester in the US and have had nothing but issues with the card. You can't load from your phone which is very inconvenient, the website rarely accepts your password. I then changed my password and not the website only says 'error occurred'. There's a huge delay in the transactions, so the app says's you have $100 for example, but the card then declines and you can't see the transactions pending. Also you can't transfer money to and from other travel cards which as an international student is pretty essential. Overall the worst card you can imagine

Worst app available

published

The travel card app is totally useless. I taught online for 20 years and know my way around the internet. The app does not recognise your email or password. When you try to change your password it does not recognise your password even though it meets the limited criteria. I think it's a great way for post Australia to have your money for a few weeks. We will not use it. I'll pay Te fee and cash it in as soon as I can.

Customer care of Load & Go card

I had to call customer care and they were really rude. I have called few time for different reasons. They just just hand up without explaining anything when there is a difficult query.

Australia Post Load and Go China Card

published

If your thinking of getting a Australia Post Load and Go China Card, it's my recommendation that you don't! It's true that China uses "Union Pay" as a main credit card but only big retailers and hotels may accept it, I had no success in any restaurant, convenience store or trying to order anything on line. There's no name on it, so on line ordering anything like food is out. Small retailers said it not issued there and wouldn't accept it, then there's fees to withdraw from a bank. Then there's issues with Australia post, there card, there emblem on it and they don't want to know you once they have your money because you won't get anything back from them. STAY CLEAR OF THIS CARD.

Auspost Mastercard gift card

published

Never trust AUSPOST ever. I lost my card in the house and I had the cardnumber with me just could locate the pin to use it online. Put a complain to Auspost and then sent me back and forth for different company who deals with it. I wasted my days for nothing at all and I have $150 still in the card which I cant use anymore because the Auspost cant refund or give me the replacement neither anyone is providing me the pin to use it. Biggest scam ever in my life that they keep the money and say we cant do anything.

Hey Sami thanks for the reply but I am 100% no one is going to reach to me ever because AUSPOST has got worst customer service in the world. I have not got my refund for weeks already and no one is listening to me at all.

Do not use this card.

published

Do not rely on this card while travelling, I was stuck in Europe and couldn't access my funds, called the number and after 20minutes on hold the didn't call me back, had to sort it out when I got back. Now my daughter has lost her card in the US we finally got a replacement only for it to get lost in the mail, how ironic. Now trying to get another replacement as Post office says we can't get the funds unless we have a card. Plus look at the exchange rates. Trying to change my Euros back to dollars the will only give me $1.49 per euro but if I want to buy Euros they want $1.72, current rate is $1.62. no wonder they don't charge fees. Avoid at all costs.

Hi Sami, my daughter lost her first card in the US, and the replacement card was lost in the mail Australia Post has given us a credit for the postage. So without a card FAQ6 doesn't apply, how do I get the funds back.

Hi Mohamad,

I'm afraid not, as generally subscription based services require a credit card, whereas the Load and Go card acts as a debit card. Your best bet would be to speak with the company you'd like to have the membership with and see what they say.

I had a similar issue with this card. I tried to buy via eftpos at a shop with my savings in this card, and could not rectify the issue.

When I contacted load and go, to help me to get into my online Australia post load and go account they wanted me to give them a photo of my medicare card and drivers licence detalis online. I felt that doing this online may be unsafe, due to the possibility of I.D theft

Also, when I had money stolen out of my Australia post load and go account, when I complained to the Australia post staff, they would not even investigate it, or follow it up. The fees for load and go are very expensive. I think that you are better of using a special fee free or low fee bank account for online purposes, to get better customer service and lower fees.

Hi Tyler

It's concerning to know that you can't use the ATM for a cash withdrawal. If you are still facing this issue, please call Card Services on 1800 549 718 within Australia or +44 207 649 9404 internationally for help 24/7.

Ibne
