In what can be called a hilarious glitch, a recent incident shared by a Reddit user revealed how he received 64 copies of his debit card while he asked for only one from the bank. A man from the US applied for a copy of his bank card a few weeks ago but got much more than what he bargained for. Peter took to the Reddit platform to share the tale along with pictures. He explained he lost his original debit card, a few weeks ago following which he asked his bank for a replacement.
However, instead of a single replacement, the bank sent him 64 copies of the same debit card. Peter had to deal with five dozen replicas of the same card, a new being delivered to him every couple of days. To share his story, he lined all the cards received by him together beside each other and posted a photograph. Peter goes on Reddit as “Mildly Interesting.” Shared three days ago, the post mentioned that Peter’s bank kept sending him one copy every day ever since he applied for a debit card. The photo shared by him revealed all the 60-odd new bank cards stuck to the hard paper emblazoned with the logo of the Premium Members Credit Union.
According to the post, Peter started receiving replacement debit cards in December last year. He wrote in the post, “They’d show up one or two at a time every few days. I’ve called my bank several times but the card issuance is handled by a third party.” He added that he believes the only point of difference between every card is the expiration date and assumedly CVV, which are sequential. Finally, the saga has reached the end of it and the glitch has been fixed, said Peter as he did not receive any new cards for over ten days now after cancelling his original replacement request.
Peter was left baffled by the debit card incident however, the story shared by him became a hot topic of discussion on the social networking website. Since he shared the unique occurrence, over 126,000 individuals have upvoted his post and more than 4,300 people have commented on the matter. Since posted, it has triggered hilarious responses from many Reddit users. Many users suggested to him alternate ways to use the card.
An individual quipped, “Turn them into playing cards. All you have to do is to write numbers on their backs and you have the weirdest deck in existence.” Another person remarked in case 63 are lost or stolen.
