Card before pin usually
Not always depends on Royal Mail

Nothing to do with royal mail, to do with the bank. They won't send both out at the same time because of the security risk. You can use a card without a pin but not a pin without a card so from a customer satisfaction point of view, makes more sense to send the card first
depends on the bank, seen them come on the same day
Pin usually first and then card. Idea is people are less likely to notice the pin as it looks like a normal letter and it’ll get through. That way if they steal the card then they don’t get the pin.

Thank you for the advice. I asked this question as thought pin always came first but perhaps not. Will probably come tomorrow or Monday. Will keep you updated
Purchases can be made contactless in the meantime if you're happy using this facility. Debit cards normally let you pay up to £30 on purchases.

And if you need cash, supermarkets can provide you with up to £50 cashback at their checkouts.

You can't get cashback without using chip and PIN, can you?

Yes, sorry, my mistake. If you want to use your debit card to withdraw cash as part of a purchase, you will be asked to make a standard Chip and PIN transaction.

You also need to make a normal chip and PIN payment before using the contactless facility on your card as well apparently. Just checked this just now as well.
