These cards receive much hype by their issuers, but are dysfunctional. Five thumbs down! Help from eith Comsec or Commonwealth Bank is non-existent. They best they could do was "Sorry". Aldi advised the surcharge is to recover the merchant fee that CommBank levies on credit card transactions. CommBank advise they wouldn'y levy a fee for a 'debit' card, but can't or wont explain why they are adamant that we have to push the 'credit' button pn the POS keypad. This is, after all, supposed to be a 'debit' card??? It's all a bit sus.
Merchants trea...t these cards as 'Credit' cards. ie. They attract surcharges (eg.Aldis Stores), because they are treated as credit cards, we can't get 'cash out' when shopping, even if you pay the surcharge. On line, I couldn't pay my Telstra a/c with it, because they don't accept 'credit' cards. ...and, Comsec don't issue normal debit cards??? what the???
