Another Museumkaart question

Now the rules have been changed I'm looking at ways of getting a card this month. I'm coming to Haarlem for four days, the Amsterdam for five. On a previous occasion I registered the card online, got it sent to my Amsterdam hotel and picked it up three months later on a second visit. This time, if I get a temp card immediately on arrival, at the Frans Hals and registered it online, how quickly would the authorities send the card, to my Amsterdam hotel, as before?.

I assume there is some overlap between sending the new card and voiding the temporary card. I also assume they're not going to tell you how much overlap there is.

You quote: “the temporary card becomes invalid at the moment you receive the photo card.“

The key word here is “receive”. It doesn’t say “register”. I think it’s pretty logical that the temporary card becomes invalid at the moment you have received your photo card in the mail.

There is no photo on the temporary card.

Thinking about it a bit more. I believe that the temporary card will automatically become void after first use of the new card. I believe this is technically quite easy to achieve and also that's how it works for card holders when their card gets renewed.

That sounds more logical (and sensible). I'm 99% sure that I used the temporary card after the 'proper one' was posted (obviously before it arrived).
