The best things in life are free and this week my ‘Hot on the Highstreet’ is dedicated to something that cannot be bought on the highstreet, and in fact cannot be bought at all.
Obsessed with personalised items (the other day I received an amazing uniquely TMM themed box of goodies from Sobe Water) I was delighted when my best friend sent me a link to Barclays’ bespoke debit card option. The idea is… ‘always remember the good times’ by choosing a photo that will make you smile or choosing an image from the Barclays online gallery and a new debit card will arrive within a few days with your very own design.
The Barclays Personalised Card is only available on personal debit cards, sadly not for business debit or credit cards. The service is completely free and will only take a minute though Barclays need to check the photo against their image guidelines before approving your choice. Your new debit card will have a new card number so remember to change any stored details on websites.
In honour of my very clever best friend who discovered this facility, I chose a fun and colourful photo from our recent trip to Berlin as a design for my new debit card and now I wait in anticipation for its arrival! It was so much fun to personalise something I use so frequently, I am tempted to redesign my card every month.
