Got my BoH Hawaiian Airlines WEMC

Postby pac4toon » Sun Apr 13, 2014 12:52 am

I just received my BoH Hawaiian Airlines WEMC in the mail today. I can't activate it till April 28. Anyway, I'm not too happy with the way it looks- it appears that they probably ran the card through the printer twice as the words look blurry and not aligned. It's like being drunk and trying to read something. Gonna try to upload a pic so you can see.

Not sure if I'm gonna call or take it to Bank of Hawaii to have it replaced or just keep it as is.

I'd definitely call them right away. To me the way a card looks is almost as important as what its perks are.

Yeah, but I'm more afraid of merchants thinking that my credit card is fake.

That is pretty bad. I'd drop by the bank and have them replace it ASAP. Mailing it in yourself may take longer. At least if there is a rep, and you show dissatisfaction, they will push it faster.

I'll drop by a BoH tomorrow and get a replacement (I wonder if I can choose a different design.
I believe they have 3 to choose from)

I'm curious to see if BoH will be able to help you since the card is now serviced by Barclaycard.

I also would like the version with the Hokule'a sailing in the night. Can't wait to check my PO Box tomorrow to see if it arrived!

Be sure to let us know the outcome for both!

Yeah, I was looking at the Hokule'a design as well. The blue plumeria looks good on the website but the card itself is "Meh". Anyway, will let you know what Boh tells me.

Last week I requested a new Amex Platinum card and it came with a hair under the laminate. Should have got a picture before I shredded it. To their credit the overnighted a new one when I called about it.
