      Hi Andrea,

      Thank you for reaching out to us.

      The Bendigo Bank PiggySaver Account does not have a debit card to come with. You may withdraw by transferring the funds to another Transaction account through BPAY, Pay Anyone and telegraphic transfers.

      I hope this helps.

      Please do not hesitate to reach out to us again if you have additional questions.

      Cheers,
      Ash

      Hi Nicky,

      Thanks for your question and apologies for the delay. I have been in contact with Bendigo and they have confirmed that you should have received the money box when you opened the account. If you have not yet received it, we recommend contacting Bendigo bank directly.

      Regards,
      Clarizza
