    I am thinking of getting a visa delta so I can start playing Asheron's Call 2 after enjoying the beta a lot. Now to my question. Can the VISA DELTA be accepted anywhere that visa is accepted or is that just for the VISA credit card?

    cheers

    Yup, the card is a VISA *and* a DELTA card.. so if somewhere takes VISA, they'll take it and if somewhere takes DELTA they'll take it.

    Visa Delta is just a debit card and unlike Switch not a lot of places accept it.


    [edit - or am I confusing this with Visa Electron]

    I think you are mate, because the problems you just mentioned sounds a lot like the Electron. It's a load of pap.

    As it's been said... a VISA Delta card will be accepted almost EVERYWHERE, it will work as a VISA card if they don't specifically have Delta even over the interweb, unlike an Electron card which is accepted nowhere and cannot be used on the phone or over the net.

    Switch sux, Solo sux, Electron sux more!
    I love my Delta :)

    Why did visa decide to have 2 different debit cards?

    Yup the Electron card is for kids. The normal VISA/Delta card is accepted pretty much everywhere, except places that don't accept any cards.

    There is, I didn't think it was appropriate.. I was going to put an edited reason but just never got round to it.
