I waited until it was a really bright and sunny day and then grabbed
Anyway... your perhaps wondering why the title of this post mentions a PayPal Access Card? Then again, you may just be thinking... ohhh, pretty polka bias binding. What project can I use that on? If you are then you can find it here. I spent ages naming all the lovely colours. My favourites are lichen and peony.
If your still wondering about the PayPal thing, then I will tell you...
But now, if I want to buy something, say Large Letter 2nd Class stamps (which I buy alot of) at my local Post Office (for example), or perhaps to post just a single order for say £1.10, or buy a ream of A4 copier paper which is so much easier to buy locally as every time I have ordered online the corners get dented which is really frustrating! I can use my card. By the time I have got home or have mobile phone signal an email will ping through confirming my transaction. Simple, quick & easy but most of all FREE!
I find that it also saves me paperwork as it then shows up on my KashFlow accounts and I don't have to keep using petty cash and causing myself more work or having to enter my debit card payment manually to KashFlow.
You can also use it over the phone too, just like any other card.
Oh, and the best bit (which resorted in my jumping up and down in delight at my Post Office Counter - you don't have to do that bit by the way!) is that it has one of those wavy lines on the end of it. Yes, it's contactless, so you can just hold it against the matching wavy lines on the screen at your post office without even entering your pin for small transactions! A quick beep, grab your receipt and your done. It did take me a minute or two to work that out and lots of waving the card around at the screen, and looking a little silly, but it was worth it!
