grrrrr ! not impressed at all . Earlier this evening decided to look for flights to Jhb last minute I know but I was awaiting confirmation of tickets I had won in an online competition on Twitter. Was over the moon with this online win as it was for tickets to see John Legend one night only in SA.
So after much playing about I found a reasonable flight yipee! But my joy was shortlived as I dont own a credit card and only have a debit card . In this case a debit card is not valid :( So much for having the money to pay but not been able to as i dont have a credit card .
As luck may have it my brother just recieved a credit card earlier this week but had not activated it so alas will have to wait for tomorow to go through all this booking drama again.
Made me think so having a card with money doesnt really help much and that one does need a credit card to make online purchases. Yet a debit card is instant cash. This baffles me and now it seems i will have to apply for a credit card for online purchases. Using money you dont have to buy things you really dont need now that sucks.
Earlier this week saw a friend make her first online purchase with a credit card and she was over the moon with the ease of purchase. I recall using my debit card to buy online in the UK , it became an addiction and literallly daily packages would arrive from Ebay and Amazon.The thrill of just clickling a button knowing how secure your payment was , was truly great. All girl loves shopping and online shopping is a much more sneaky way of hiding our shopping as we can get parcels delivered to work
So much for me sorting out my little long weekend of fun away until tomorow , I will conquer you Online ! So moral of story always have a credit card to make online purchases otherwise you will end up like me totally fustrated . farewell my lovelies fingers crossed this booking gets sorted tomorow:).
