Chip fell out of debit card

Posted 4th Jul 2009
After withdrawing some cash from an ATM yesterday, the chip fell out of the card as I was removing my card. The chip fell on to the street and I couldn't find it.

Anyway until I get round to going to HSBC on Monday, can the card still be used in ATMs with the stripe?

yeah i think it can
Didnt you try it and see?
I dont think it can as i was told that the cash machine reads the chip, try using it at asda and ask for cash back :thumbsup:
I dont think it can, as nearly all shops now are chip & pin so you wont be able to get cashback from them, n even if they still swipe the card they might refuse the card n say its been temped in some way with out the chip.

Do you have internet banking, transfer some money over to mates bank account & ask them to get the money out for you
yeah the chip does nothing at atms,will work fine
did the cash point work???????? :w00t:
Chip is for Chip and Pin at Petrol / Asda / Tesco etc....

ATM is reading magnetic strip !

My partner chip was on it's way out and he ordered a new card,they come pretty quick,less than a week usually. I put it down to cos he sits about with them in his back pocket,and always needing replacments cos bent etc.

But did it ten years ago when the question was asked? A lot can change in that time.
