Watch out at Bangkok Bank new ATM cards

Recommended Posts

Heard  through the grape vine BKB  changed  ATM cards as of to-day to using a 6 didgit pin number, and new style of embeded chip. What a performance, Passport, Bank Book,House Book.Required 10 sheets of paper, some of which had to be signed twice next select a new pin and entered 4 times.Next came a request for 300Bt for the new  card.

Only been baanking with them for  over 30 years,never been charged for ATM card before.Hungry barstuards Eh? ttl

It seems since 15th January cards with only magnetic strips will not work in retail shops in Thailand anymore.

You can still get money at the ATM with the old cards but it seems you can't use them i.e. in the supermarket anymore.

And that is independent from the bank.

So the change over has been known for months,   how did  you get the know.Nothing on Bualuang Online Site.  Anyhow no reseller in this area uses pin number ,and laughingly the  aassistant in the bank said  NO NEED TO SIGN THE CARD.  THat is fair enough as no one ever checks the signature against my card.Instead they like to sight my pink ID card,but only a glance.TIT

Had my chipped Bangkok Bank card for 3 + 1/2 years , has a 4 digit pin .

Gf informs me that I need to change it to a 6 digit pin.

Went to nearest BB they inform me I have to go to the branch I opened the account at with bank book and passport.

Okay, drove 30 minutes to the branch for them to tell me as my card has still 1 + 1/2 years on it and is chipped am good to go !!

 

But when I do change it will be Union Pay ☹️

Still works with AliExpress.

As long as it works online and in ATMs, I'll keep using it.
