Black BMO Debit Card!?

Hi!

Does anyone here have a Black BMO Debit card?

I was at the branch a couple of weeks ago and I was told based on my investments, accounts, etc, I should be having a black BMO Debit card. The branch though has tried in vain to order one and I keep getting a new blue one again and again (on my 6th one now).

Just wondering if anyone has one and any way I can help the branch know how to order one.

Sounds to me like they were trying to sell you on getting a World Elite MasterCard which is black. That's the only black card I've seen from BMO so far.

Just a theory, to be confirmed: there used to be a black BMO Debit card, but that ever since BMO launched MasterCard Debit, all debit cards are now blue once they are replaced.

Thank you, angel_wing0, both for confirming that there is a black debit card at BMO and for this piece of information on the other thread...

I have a BMO IGA debit card, which I think is more exclusive. Branch agents are always surprised or confused when I pull it out :)

Black bmo debit cards are generally for private banking customers only. So unless you have over 100k in liquid assets than most likely you will only receive the blue card

CIBC has the same thing, they call it Imperial Service

Back when it started, head office sent me a one when my debit card expired. One day I was doing something in branch and they said something like "Oh, you shouldn't have one of these". They took it giving me a generic one again. I never forgot that slap in the face. One thing I noticed is that they do treat you differently when you pull one out.

I was a summer student with RBC and there were always rumours of a black RBC debit card as well. Most tellers are told to drop whatever they're doing and help clients with this type of card.
