There isn't really much QUESTION to this just something I noted and wanted to see if other people had too. So to start, this is my basic definition of a Debit card and a Credit card; DEBIT CARD - Card which you store money on to buy things. CREDIT CARD - Card which you buy things on, then pay the bill you accumulated. The company i.e. VISA/MASTERCARD/SWITCH etc... has no weight on whether it is credit or debit. I for instance have a VISA DEBIT. Now I have had many an argument with my partner here over these definitions for plenty of reasons. Trying to buy stuff online.. "WTF, this debit card doesn't have any numbers on it, how do I buy stuff online" "You need a Credit card to buy stuff online"... "mmmm no... I've never had a credit card and I've bought stuff all my life online" "YOUR CARD SAYS VISA ON IT" "MY CARD ALSO SAYS DEBIT ON IT YOU ..." etc.. etc.. Point being I thought this was just an individual thing, but then on a Icelandic flight the flight captain said "We only take credit card payments" so of course I knew what he really meant, (i.e. we only take cards that have numbers on them unlike standard icelandic debit cards). So I say, "may i try this debit card" he replies: "oh... well it has the digits on the front so, are you sure its not a credit card?" So yeh the card worked, cut the story short.... what is it with this whacked out definition of credit card. Credit card does not equal CAN GO ONLINE or HAS NUMBER ON FRONT. I don't get why this confusion is present. Just wondered if anyone else had noticed this or for an added bonus, knows the reason.
