Bank charges

Post by pc.hc@tesco.net » March 3rd, 2019, 3:32 pm

Hi everyone any advice on this topic?

We are with Bankia and I keep getting these odd charges? Just had two €28 charges for bank cards? My wife and I have a debit card each so presume this is what it’s for?

Any advice what you can be expected to be charged? Thanks

My bank charges when they issue a new card as well.

I have just opened an account with Bankia. It is their CUENTA ON account, which is 100% online. So long as you manage the account online they claim there are no charges. Our cards were recently issued, charged 28 euros each, then both charges refunded automatically. Seems promising but I will keep a watch on future charges.
