Q: Which bank in Beijing allows you to withdraw money from a PLUS atm card?

Oh well, I am holding this EasiCard from OCBC Bank that does not even have a Cirrus sign, only the PLUS sign. Any idea where can I get my money out from the stupid card?

In China, UNION PAY is the one used.  Normally, Union Pay does have reciprocal agreements with others like Cirrus, Plus, Master, Visa, etc, so your card should work .

Start visiting ATM's from different banks to see if your card works on one. Your real problem may come in when asked for the PIN number, in China is six digits, abroad is only 4. So, input your PIN as 00XXXX. The X are your PIN numbers. Some banks, like Bank of China, the ATM will accept a 4 digit PIN number

Last thing, be aware that many local ATM's, after three failures at providing the correct PIN number, will not return your card, so only try twice per machine visited, and after second try remove card from machine

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
