    I note that at €5 charge has been debited from my current a/c for a debit card today. Happy Valentine's to you too BOI. :)

    But I don't have a debit card. Just my laser. It expires end of Feb.

    Perhaps they are sending them out?

    Has anybody received one?

    My fiver was taken from my BoI account a couple of weeks ago and the narrative just says: GOVT DUTY ATM/POS
    A laser card is a debit card though so even if the narrative on your account says something other than the above, that seems in order to me. Or did you already pay in January and now have a second charge?

    The thread about the change to visa direct has an update from someone today that the visa direct cards are going to be rolled out on a phased basis between March and August 2012.

    Hi Janet

    I already paid €5 on January 25 - ATM/POS.

    So this is a second charge today.

    Oooh, in that case I'd be on to them quick smart demanding a refund. Even if they had given you a new visa direct card, that should invalidate the laser (I think) and you can't be charged stamp duty twice in a year. Don't see a charge on my account today but will keep a good eye on it now in case the same happens.

    Edited to add that this post from yet another thread on BoI laser to visa direct seems to imply that it might be just an ordinary transaction. Did you buy anything for €5 recently?

    Hope its ok to hijack this thread didn't think it merited opening a new one. I've had an ordinary Bank of Ireland for ages thing is I just lost it and have applied for a new one. Will i get an ordinary card again or do I have to go with one of the new debit ones.

    I lost my laser card two weeks ago and got a replacement laser from BOI, there was no mention of debit card. I'd assume it'll be the same for you
