CDG bank Azul cards

Turns out they have done away with them this past week (starting Monday 2nd December), and the replacement card(s) have to be registered over the phone,online or in a bank.

As I found out to my cost.

On Tuesday went to RadioPopular and my card was declined in-store but it worked in a Multibanco for a cash withdrawal, the store assistant said they had had problems with their systems that day so I assumed …..........

In LIDL today and it was declined again, and their MultiBanco confiscated the card, lucky I had enough cash, so a call to the CGD help-desk and almost all was done, all I have to do is either find the pin number they sent months ago,keeping paper is not my strongest point or go to my branch and get it there.

and the reason I got some cash on Tuesday is that they allow you a "get you home" one off withdrawal.

So be warned.
