The thread all about Starling having a new card BIN

Has anybody noticed Starling seem to have a different BIN on new cards?

OH lost her old card to ordered a new one and it has a BIN of 5356 74

My card from Oct 2018 has a BIN of 5574 35

I wonder if they had to change the BIN when they moved to world debit - though I don’t think Monzo had to change BIN when they went from standard to world debit?

My personal Starling card is 5574 35

I am trying to find an old version of my card to see if it changed. The World Debit changes seems the most likely reason though

Rubbish name for a topic :laughing:

Wasn’t the expected format “All about the” …

Clearly we need more moderation here to to keep up a minimum standard!


I found this from 2018

I wonder @Adie if it goes back to the issue of business cards. Is it possible that your OH is super careful with her card and hasn’t needed a new one since they started phasing in new BINS :grinning:

This update would also suggest it’s to do with World Debit

Nah she’s not careful, I probably just never noticed on her last card - I don’t look at hers that often.

Met Someone yesterday who’s Starling card has this BIN. Also had no World Debit branding and no contactless logo

Yes that’s like mine, though there is a contactless logo but it is on the back.

my bad, I should have said that it wasn’t on the front :slight_smile:

Interesting interaction were you meet “Someone” (with a captial S, no less) and they show you their debit cards right away :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

(Also: “who’s”? :face_with_raised_eyebrow: )

Sounds like the way two Monzo customers would react. I wonder if both put their cards in the air and gave them a little knowing wave…

oh dear @nanos . You’re right of course, my spelling and grammer are clearly the main takeaway from my post. I guess you’re covering for @Dickie today :stuck_out_tongue:

I was honestly quite surprised to see someone else with a Starling card but we met for lunch, it was his turn to pay and in order to see his BIN I had to explain this place to him :face_with_raised_eyebrow: which means there may not be another lunch :rofl:

I was not carrying my Starling card so I simply high fived him, gave him a manly slap on the arse and sent him on his way
