It's my hope to get to Japan next month, and I have another question about using ATM machines.
My present situation is I have a Visa debit card for my checking account, and I have a plain ATM card for my savings acount.
The two accounts are not linked.
With being in Japan, is it best to have the accounts linked? In other words, is there a potential problem with accessing savings account funds with a savings account ATM card in Japan? Or, is it as simple as pressing withdrawl and just entering the pin number for that account?
At the time I made these arrangements, I felt it was best for each acount to have its own card and not be linked since my checking account is a Visa Debit which could be used by someone to make purchases if it was lost or happened to be stolen.
Whereas, the savings acccount card is strictly an ATM card and can not be used for purchases.
I would be grateful for any assistance.
