TSB down again

Just walked in the [-Censored-]ing rain to get bread and milk only to be told tsb have gone offline again and TSB payment cards aint working.

I guess it goes to show if the internet was to go offline for everyone completely........ WHAM!

Re: TSB down again

Oh dear. I remember my days as a software development manager. I feel pity for the geeks in TSB IT. Definitely brown trousers time.  Probably somewhere, someone said: "Surely you don't need more time for testing. If there's some minor problems we'll use workarounds. ..."

Re: TSB down again

You use a payment card for bread and milk?

I do!  Wink

I use a card for most things, however small the value, and I think that's a growing trend.  Plus I've read recently about certain shops only taking card payments due to their local bank branches closing which leaves them with nowhere to deposit cash.

I don't mind having a note or two tucked into my phone case for emergency use, but if I was to pay for something with them I'd no doubt end up with a pocket full of metal.

Ask your local corner shop if you can put a loaf on the tally.

Get a prepaid card & keep it topped up so you can always have a backup in the wallet if you've not got cash... Smiley

Brown bread for a bacon butty?

Nooooo! Smiley

PS. Spend less than a fiver using a card at my local Kwik-E-Mart and they bung on an extra charge - is that even legal anymore?

In Scotland that's called home delivery...

Re: TSB down again

This morning I made a sizeable cash withdrawal from the ATM at my local TSB.

Unfortunately it showed up on my account when I checked later Sad
