Has anyone managed to get a Transferwise debit card yet?
Does it require SMS access?

I'm now locked out of my Qantas Cash/Travel Money account because I have no mobile phone so no ability to receive SMS. (I do know the approx. balance I'm holding in Euros and plan to use that up for purchases when next overseas, but will then need an alternative debit card that I can load in Euros.)

Citibank and HSBC both have a couple of options

No it still says not available in your location when I'm in Australia - even though I'm in the UK with no VPN - it says We're sorry cards have reached Australia yet

Does anyone have much experience with the Borderless account. If I put some US $ into an account can I then transfer them to my AU$ account just with a click of a button.

That is exactly how it happens. You can then view those balances on the desktop page or on the phone app.

If anyone wants to join Transferwise as a new customer there is now a referral link thread Join Transferwise and get a free international transfer

I've had one for a while now and I love it - just used it in South America as a debit card and all went well

I have been using the borderless account to transfer money to my family's account in USA and it does work well , quite easy. If you have all the details handy , it's easy to receive money as well.

Well now, I can't do that eitheras I don't have a mobile phone or wi fi account. However, I assume all transactions can be done on their website.

when I login to transferwise account online , it is asking me to confirm the access from the app on my phone. So I guess we need any device with transferwise already installed.
