They're not actually credit cards, they are the banks "Night and Day" cards, 
which is a debit card only, you can use at ATM or EFTPOS (Electronic Funds 
Transfer at Point Of Sale).

And yes I had thought of the $5.00 NZD charge for a replacement card when a 
card is lost ...

- Open new acct with $5.00 per Grooper who wants a card
- Order a lost card for each "order" and pay the $5 fine for each one
- Close acct after we have enough cards
- post cards out

Would see if I could get the name on the card to be G.Rooper.   :o)

But that may have to wait until I get back to NZ to jack up ....
