    I asked about this and they said "who cares?", apparently I have an interest free account.

    Sign of things to come?

    The more we have to rely on electronic banking the more TITSUP are reported.

    Going to your local branch instead is less and less an option. I am charitably assuming that the internal banking networks do not have the same issues at the moment.

    In this case it is a credit card company but credit cards are increasingly the main front end for spending money held in banks.

    Moral - more than one card (Visa and Mastercard) and more than one banking group.

      "Moral - more than one card (Visa and Mastercard) and more than one banking group."

      I have quite a few cards from various different banks, and they WERE a broad mix of Visa and Mastercard - but almost all* of the issuers have shifted over to Visa.

      Even Barclaycard, the subject of this story - I originally had two with them, one Visa, one Mastercard. This became three when they acquired Egg (which I think was Visa at the time). And now all three are Visa.

      * It might even be all; I'm not sure.

        @VinceH - if you are still looking, Halifax do a mastercard with could rates for spending overseas.

    Wonder how long it will take to go from TITSUP, to SNAFUBAR.

    Certificate problems

    I have had problems in the past with Barclays online banking, when my browser has claimed there was an issue with certificates. I try again next day, no problems reported. Barclays have said to me, "No, we don't have those problems. Send us a screenshot if it happens again."

    Hall of shame.

    El Reg should start a new section called TITSUP. Then we can find all the banking, airline and telecoms failures in one place.
