Great. Saw some posts about it changing to NZ money and then back to US.. I noticed at one store the machine asked if I wanted USD or NZD so selected USD.. Since then I have just said to everyone where I have used it to please select USD if it asks what currency I wanted. Mostly just pulling out cash anyway at the ATM after all the US seems to be a very cash based society.
Great card, sucky app Card is great and very handy when travelling, but this app sucks. Never remembers password, and more than 2 minutes to load transaction details when overseas is too long. Only 2 transactions too! Look forward to update that makes this useable, in the meantime, avoid.
Scam Don't believe the nonsense about this working in all places Visa is accepted. We've been left high and dry by this card several times now in the US. Swipe or pin, neither work reliably. Had to revert back to an NZ ANZ card with crazy exchange rates just to pay for groceries. Bought something in USD, delivered to a US address, with my loaded card that ONLY has USD loaded to it and it charged me in NZD, then converted that to USD and charged me TWICE to convert it! Total waste of money, it's a scam.
There should be laws about making apps this bad. In fact, had I realized that the app was so utterly terrible, I would never had gotten a card. Great idea, shocking implementation by a bank that is usually awesome. Kiwibank should employ a team of monkeys with laptops to write the next update.
Does the job You can check your balance etc. But ... 'remember me' for password doesn't work. Under 'personal details', not enough spaces to enter phone number especially if you want to enter the country code as well. I buy a sim card in the country I'm travelling in and the phone number has lots more digits than in NZ. Under 'contact us' I wanted to write a message but again unable to write more than a one liner. App not well designed.
I like using the loaded for travel card best thing I ever got it's helped me to start saving even using the app help me to keep track of everything I do. But over the last couple off days the app login and that it my balance won't show up and I've restarted my phone and even uninstall the app still not working
