We were due for new credit cards and when the credit card company notified us they’d mailed them to Portugal, I made a note of the date. When we hit the three week time frame I figured they’d wandered off to who knows where so I contacted the company with the news. As I anticipated, they promptly cancelled the account and they sent new cards to a secure address in the US so I can pick them up in October.
Wanna guess what showed up the day after I contacted them?
The ‘missing’ cards.
Shoulda made it 3 weeks and one day, it appears.
Because this particular credit card company is VERY thorough, today I got a Fraud Alert on my new card, which I don't have yet. I called and they walked me through the process to verify I did indeed ask them to send the cards to a different address even though I'd instructed them to do that via their secure email on their website.
Truth is, I didn't mind. At least they're looking out for me. I'll file this under First World Problems and call it good. Luckily the new cards, unless some creep steals the number, are good for five more years.
