Simpler. Better. Faster. Yeah right.

At 10:55 am Your Web AddiCT received the following message

Please collect your renewed Standard Bank card at N1 CITY Branch with your ID. If you have collected, thank you.

That card being a Mastercard, the key indgerdient to purchasing anything online. Discovered my curreent card was expired when playing cash test dummy on CherryPicka. CherryPicka is an awesome site btw ๐Ÿ™‚

Inspired. Motivated. Involved. ? Got a call from standard bank credit card division nearly a month after my card had expired. Do not use my credit card that often, just one or 2 times a month but still, the Involved part of Inspired Motivated Involved means to me that that my bank is involved in my personal and business finaces. Inspired & Motivated to ensure that their are no hicups when it comes to banking.

The bank is a 5 minute drive from the office, another 5 minutes to find parking, 5 minutes to walk from car to bank, 20 mintues inรƒโ€šร‚ the Q at Enquires, 5 mintues to looks for my card, 5 minutes on the phone with the credit card division asking about my card, 5 seconds to explain that I’ll be unable to collect my card today… Next Customer please.

If the card has NOT arrived at the branch yet,รƒโ€šร‚ why did Standard Bank SMS me to pick it up?

Anyhow, Your Group of Web AddiCT(s); needs to open a new bank account for the new company that is in an early embrionic stage so thougth we could kill 2 bank account birds with one stone.

I’ve changed my mind. Can anyone suggest another bank to open a business account?

The reason I’ve blogged about this is that Standard bank have started listening AND responding to South African Bloggers. I hope I used all the phrases in order for their sniffer dogs (Online Reputation Management software) to pick up the scent of this post.
