TD Bank has begun issuing debit cards without raised numbers.
They’re perfectly flat, with the numbers just printed on the front.
Even though some retailers think the cards are fake, they’re not only legit, they’re probably what all debit cards will look like in a few years.
Credit and debit cards needed raised numbers back in the day when retailers made carbon copies of receipts with imprint machines.
But when was the last time you saw one of those?
A spokesperson said TD Bank is switching to flat cards because they can be made in any of its 1,000 branches, from Maine to Florida.
Customers can have a new debit card in their hands in just five minutes, whether they’re replacing a lost or stolen card, or opening a new account.
No more waiting five to 10 business days for it to arrive in the mail.
How cool is that? I certainly want my bank to do this.
