I have an HAD a VISA ELECTRON CARD. Then the Co-Operative bank PLC sent me a replacement VISA `Debit Card`.
Since been advised that this so-called debit card is still an ELECTRON card. Therfore can`t use it for merchants that request only ` Debit Cards`.

Easy to use,
No messing about, everything is straight forward, transactions, dealing with requests, taking money out, cashing cheques.... Couldn't complain. I am with Halifax and I find them to have great service, I only really use this card for simple activities like going our for meals... Paying for petrol...
