Man baffled as bank accidentally sends him replacement debit card every few days – & he now has 64 of them

A MAN was left in shock after requesting a replacement debit card from his bank, and 64 cards arrived. 

Taking to Reddit, the man, known as Peter, was left baffled as the cards kept arriving at his home. 

He wrote: "My bank sent me 64 copies of the same debit card."

Peter shared a photo of his huge collection of replacement cards, still attached to letters from the Premium Members Credit Union.

He took to the comments to reply to people’s questions and gave more backstory to the bizarre saga.

He explained: "Back in December, I started receiving replacement debit cards. They'd show up one or two at a time every few days.

"I've called my bank several times but the card issuance is handled by a third party.

"The only difference between each card is the expiration date (and I assume CVV), which are sequential. 

“The first card expires 12/24 and the last expires 04/30 with every card in between, although I seem to be missing 07/29."

Thankfully, at the time of the Reddit post, he thought the issue had been resolved as he hadn’t received any more duplicates in over a week.

He explained: "I haven't received any in 10 days, which is a new high score. I assume the glitch has been fixed.”

My bank sent me 64 copies of the same debit card.

Over 126,000 people have upvoted his post on Reddit's r/MildlyInteresting forum, with thousands saying how amused they were. 

One joked: "Just incase 63 are lost or stolen."

Another added: "Turn them into playing cards. All you have to do is to write numbers on their backs and you have the weirdest deck in existence."

A third wrote: "Could be the 2021 version of making it rain, except instead of cash, it's debit cards."

Meanwhile, one commented: "Meanwhile I've requested seven new cards over the past four years and haven't received a single one."
