Meet ChuckTM: the new disposable bank card
ME today launched a new concept in bank card technology – a readily disposable, 100% recyclable debit card called Chuck™.
The bank created the card with the messiness of life in mind, understanding that customers regularly lose multiple cards.
Rendered in unpretentious cardboard and reinforced with cutting-edge interior corrugation, Chuck will bring a tiny slice of shabby chic to your wallet.
It comes in a sheet of six ready-to-lose cards – so if you misplace Chuck, you can just shrug and pop another one out, ready to use. 
“Most cards are designed for people who are organised. Here’s one for the rest of us,” said ME Money Expert, Matthew Read.
“True freedom means never having to worry about where your card is again,” he said.
“With Chuck, your income has never been so disposable.”

Key features:
  • 100% biodegradable. Toss your card guilt-free – and let it return to the earth. It’s the circle of life.
  • Instant limits. Spending too much on a big night out? Just tear up Chuck on the spot: problem solved.
  • Available as a six pack. Never be left cardless again. Chuck comes in a sheet of six, ready to pop.
  • Burn baby burn. Chuck is extremely flammable – use it as a firelighter or to nonchalantly light a cigarette.
  • Theft schmeft. Card got swiped? No sweat. Just pop out another Chuck and get back to your spending.
  • Spin cycle. Left your card in your pocket on washing day? When one Chuck dissolves, another steps up.
  • Forget about it. Left Chuck at the local coffee shop? No worries – they can just bin it with your leftover cronut.
Eligibility: You’ll need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident and gullible enough to fall for this.

Editor / legal notes.
This is general advice only. You should check whether Chuck is right for you. Chuck should only be destroyed in a safe and reasonable manner. ME is not responsible for any flood or fire damage that comes from the process of destroying Chuck cards. Enough Chuck cards are provided for you to lose three (3) cards per week. If you’re losing your stuff more often than that, we can’t help you. Also, Chuck isn’t a real thing, so there’s that too. Still reading?
