A week or so ago my contactless payments stopped working, i.e. the card started to get rejected everywhere. PIN transactions still work just as expected.
That was annoying because I had to use another card for my TfL travel breaking my weekly cap and overpaying for my journeys as a result.
The problem is that this is my second card, and the first one was replaced because the same thing happened - after a few months contactless payments simply stopped working. That time after a conversation with support it was assumed the card got physically damaged, and I received a new one for free.
The card, however, wasn’t damaged (at least visibly), and the new one was always kept in the wallet and is virtually intact, yet the same thing happened to it as well.
Contactless payments aren’t blocked in the app, and the support also tells that everything seems to be fine on their end. Could it be the card again? If so, it’s hardly worth replacing it once again when it will fail the same way when it’s most needed.
Has anyone experienced the same problem? Could you find an explanation or solution?
