Bank keeps replacing CC - seeking service that will notify vendors of new CC details

Postby HarrietB » Sat Jan 31, 2015 2:42 pm

It seems like every few months my credit card company (first Chase, now Barclaycard) sends new credit cards to me and the three other family members on my account, saying there was a breach in security so they are changing our cards. Each time they do this, it takes a huge amount of time and work to inform all regular payees that my card has changed.

In the past, I had some service that would store all my regular credit card payees, and would inform all of them if my credit card changed. I don't remember what the service was called. I'd like to find such a service again. But I haven't yet found such a service, and I can't even figure out what words to use in Google to search for such a service.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Harriet

Sorry, I'm not aware of any service that does this.

I would see if the bank can give you more info on why this is occurring so frequently. I've never had it happen to me before. Maybe your family travels frequently or having so many people on the account makes the computer system wary when looking at transactions all over the place? I don't know how the fraud protection system works. But this seems unusual.

I think it might be a certain merchant that keeps being used that has a breach of some sort, it could also be online transactions while the computer has malware or something

What frustrates me is that I used to have a service just like this.

I don't agree with others that this is unusual. Even if we just have a new expiration date, we still need to notify all our vendors. And I used to have such a service - I think it may have come with an MBNA Master Card I got from the New York State Bar Association many years ago. But I can't even remember the name of that service.

If this service doesn't exist, it should!

I guess it depends on the individual and the spending habits they have

I've never even heard of verified by visa until I purchased a case through native Union directly--I wanted to go get it at mr porter for both but because I wanted the pink and navy I got one at each--I was a bit skeptical of native union's checkout process and almost didn't go through with it but ended up giving in to get the case in pink and used a debit card I have attached to a checking account I never use--I transferred just enough to pay for it so if anything else tries to go through it would be rejected

Most merchants I have, as long as the number doesn't change, regardless of what the code on back or front is, and the expiration date, the service will continue

And so far, I haven't had any bad luck *knockonwood*

I think one of the reasons having a service that will auto update is the age ol' of how can u make $$ off of it and more importantly, will you?

I was saying the frequency with which your card gets fraud alterted seems unusual. Not the policy of having to update your payment info.
