Thursday morning Shawna checked the banking. This is something we do every day.
We had a surprise because the credit union Visa site had been hacked. Ok fine, that happens from time to time. We called, and they told us that our current card will be good until June 13th but that our new credit cards were being sent to our home address. For us that was not much help since we will be on the cruise ship long before the cards were to arrive and far too late to get them back to us since we are in New Mexico. So, the dilemma of not having our credit card for the 14-day Alaska Cruise was very upsetting.
So today from 8am our time till 3pm we were talking to our credit union and Visa back and forth. They could not extend our credit card to be active until we got back home so they promised that they would send out an “emergency replacement card” to arrive within 24 hours. We doubt that is possible because we are in a small village with limited delivery service. Even Amazon promises 2 days delivery and we know it is usually 3 days before our package will arrive because of our location.
Incredibly the card did arrive before 2pm Friday. Great Right!? Not quite. The card did arrive, but it was not working. After several calls to the credit union the card was working, and everything was ready for our trip.
Whew! What an interesting few days.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
