Our Spot debit cards are here! All ready for you to collect from your nearest branch. Oh, wait … we don’t do branches! In the world of Spot, you can order your card in-app, without leaving your sofa.

Getting minted is as easy as tapping the card icon in your Spot App. Let us know where you want your card delivered, and our friends at Pargo will deliver it to your home for free. (Heads up: it may take up to five working days.)

Or, if you’re not home (the hustle is real!), you can choose Click and Collect to select a Pargo Pickup Point near you. You can get your hands on your very own Spot card from one of the 100 selected Pargo Pickup Points , so you can combine collecting your Spot card with some shopping. Two birds. One stone.

Welcome to Spot Money

As soon as you receive your One Time Pin (OTP) via SMS and email from Pargo, head on over to your selected collection point. Because we believe you should be in control of your day and not have to be forced to sit round waiting for a courier, you get 14 days to collect your card before the OTP becomes invalid. So do it on your way to yoga, breakfast, the school run, or whatever it is that keeps you busy.

Now that you have your shiny new card, it’s time to activate it.

    1. Sign in to your Spot app.
    2. Tap the card icon at the bottom of your screen.
    3. Select Activate card now.
    4. Enter the 18 digit card number found at the back of the card and click Next.
    5. We’ll send you an OTP. Enter it and hit Next.
    6. Create a secure secret PIN for your card (remember not to share it with anyone) and you’re good to go.

And now for tap to pay. Because who doesn’t want to feel like a 🧙 when they pay for stuff. The first time you make a payment with your card, you’ll need to insert it into the store’s point of sale (POS) device and enter your card PIN. This is a security feature which activates ‘tap to pay’ for future payments.

Once you’ve successfully completed your first payment, you’ll be able to use the ‘tap to pay’ feature on your Spot debit card. Yip. It’s that easy.

Needless to say, your first Spot card is free. No branches means no-to-low fees. No fees to tap. No fees to swipe. You get to manage your card in your app.

Signing up for your free Spot account is just as easy. Don’t fret about sending through heaps of documents. Or a DNA sample. Do it all from your couch Or wherever is most convenient for you.

When last did you actually, physically, in real life, walk into a bank? And do you miss it at all?
