Today I tried buying something in Tesco and was unable to use contactless. Upon trying to use chip and PIN the machine said there was a problem with my chip. There is a blemish on the chip which has been there since my card arrived, it is printed onto the chip.
A kind shopper paid for my shopping and I went to try the card in the ATM outside which also said it was unable to read my card. Surely contactless should still have worked without the chip? Is there anything I can do, I really grudge paying £5 for a new card when I have not been responsible for it no longer working.
