OK, last night I went out for a few drinks, went to get some cash from an ATM, covered the keypad so as to prevent any one/cameras seeing my pin entry....then proceeded to enter the wrong pin 3 times in a row....my card is now locked for 24hours and the bank claim its an automatic thing and they cant do anything about it.

So I have approximately £20 in cash in the change jar. Approximately 0 litres of fuel in the car. A pace that needs a small financial input to prep it for the planned freewheel use tomorrow.

I was also planning to buy a new suit today......arghhhh!

Looks like I'll be prepping the pace with what I have laying around, and spending the day riding....because its free.... ah well it could be worse!

surely you can go into a branch or ring them up and get it unlocked - they can't just stop access to your money?????

Oopps.....I have a golden rule now. If I think a night out may turn a bit...erm...well oiled, I take the cash out first and leave cards at home.

Ive phoned the bank, and was told its auto locked for 24 hours, they cant help me... I asked if I could make a withdrawel over the counter at any local branches....I was told they dont offer a counter service on saturdays.....lets have a big woohoo! for HSBC...

Ive done a quick tot up of the change jar and its actually over £50...so I wont starve & can probably afford to get the pace bits sorted on it....however the suit is deffinately not going to happen today :(

I probably could, but im not that worried about it really...more a minor annoyance than a real problem.

If I really need to im sure I can arrange a deal with a mate for a loan...but I dont think i'll need to.

I've just had £135 back from Atlantic Gas and Electric as a loyalty bonus - which was nice. :)

Do you only own the one card :shock:
I have 3 bank accounts and lost count on credit cards so if one card gets lost / stolen i'm never stuck!
Do you not have a CC? You do get 30 days interest free, plenty of time to clear the balance off.
