According to the 2010 Debit Issuer Study sponsored by Discover Financial Services’ Pulse electronic funds transfer network, “Instant issuance is growing sharply. Banks and other issuers said they are increasingly handing out debit cards in the branch as they sign up new customers, to facilitate immediate use and to eliminate the expense of having to replace cards lost or stolen in the mail. And, 35 percent of debit-card issuers offered instant issuance in 2009, up from 28 percent in 2008. Those considering it jumped to 36 percent, from 26 percent, in the same time period.”
