I believe the chips used for the pingit bands are prepaid visa, which I assume isn’t under the same new rules? The pingit card certainly is a prepaid visa. Keep in mind the pingit card (and I assume bands) are linked to a pingit jar not a current account directly. So it would be like linking a savings pot which isn’t the same as your current account.
Thank you for the considered response simon.
