Hi, is BNZ's Flexi Debit Visa good? I am talking about their security etc.. Since there are currently big security problems here, I would like to make sure that this card is good. If People currently using this card can respond that would be great!

Also, if you paid for something online, but the company went into liquidation or something, can you get your money back from BNZ because you paid via Visa Debit?

This is how I understand it:

The security issues are around the devices you use your card in (ATMs, EFTPOS machines etc), not the cards themselves.

You're covered by Visa not BNZ, under the same policies as any Visa card. (that is, if a company goes into liquidation, there are no guarantees you'll get your money back using ANY credit card or means of payment)
