I just watched the latest QA Video and this made me cringe a little bit … I mean … it does kinda make sense to give early bakers something extra - but for me this statement simply means “Those that don’t have a credit card will be punished”.
I am not sure how one could fix that. I just hope you don’t make it too expensive.
Yep, completely agree. I just woke up and instead of thinking a minute about it I did this impulsive post. Keep the current non-limited tiers for a few weeks (or days) so that people like me don’t have to feel discriminated
Its the same extra cost. All I get is a bank specific debit card - and even then I still have to pay a monthly fee just to have that bank account. It’s quite a ripoff and I don’t want to throw even more money at those banksters. Especially since I:B would be my only use case.
I am sure there are other reasons not to have a Credit Card (like dependence on income) and it is quite doubtful that a discussion about whether or not everyone should have one leads anywhere - red herring.
Maestro, yep. As in Debit Card. In germany “EC Card”. I am aware of the differences. Cheapest way for me to upgrade is 25 bucks a year for a rechargeable one. Not going to happen. I’d rather put those into I:B even if I get a little less out of it than with a CC.
I am from germany too. There are actually quite a few credit cards available that cost nothing, I know because I have one thats comletly free. Alternativly you can just go to penny and buy a debit card (you can find them by the registers).
Unfortunately, it depends on where you live. I am sure I would have free access to it if I lived in a bigger city, probably coupled with the bank account. I do not. I choose a bank nearby (the only one) in order to be able to actually go there in person if needed. You can get “free” cards anywhere but then you’d actually have a credit. So my only choice is a prepaid cc which does come with a cost.
I find this arguing about how easy it is to get a CC quite tiresome. Thus this will be my last reply to this thread, regretting having made it in the first place.
