I have had a few cards sent to Boca Chica recently. My home address is in Canada. The cards are shipped to me by the Bank, at their expense. They use different courier and by the time it reaches here the major couriers even pass it on to a second courier for delivery.I just had my MasterCard compromised and they're sending me another one. It has to go to my home of record in the USA. This is my sister and BIL's house. What would be the best way to ship it here? I thought I read on here that DHL was the best but I can't search DHL because it's too short.
If DHL is the preferred method, do I create an account and my sister ships using it? Then, where would I pick it up. I do have BM Cargo but I understand that they don't do mail.
Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
The Banks also tell you you must be present and sign for the card when the card is delivered.
In Boca Chica I found that was wishful thinking on the part of the bank.
When the courier finally arrived in Boca Chica, they gave it to the person that open my door and left without getting a signature. They don't care.
I am just curious why the Bank would only ship to your home of record in the USA?
What would happen if you were stuck in the middle of Europe without cash or card?
