3-4 years ago when I got my ANZ Gold Visa they sent a free smart card
reader. It came with a mini CD-ROM with some software but as my PC had a
slot for full-sized CD instead of a tray, I couldn't use it. They must have
known that I never used it, so they tried to speak with me but we never
connected. Perhaps they might still be offering these devices. I vaguely
recall there was a way to load the cards with cash so they must also have
the ability to write to the smart chip.
