half fare travel card with debit card

Hi all,

I've recently ordered the half fare travel card with debit card, as it was cheaper. I really don't want this debit card, because I have my bank's one and also because it has some rates when loading money into it.
I haven't received the travel card yet, so I'm curious to know if the debit card acts as the half fare travel card, or if I'll receive a separate travel card later? (the temporary travel card which is a paper I received when purchasing it still hasn't expired)
Maybe someone who has bought this option can shed some light into the matter
thanks!

However I'm able to buy the ticket with whatever I want, right? (cash, other card..)

Yes. It has no effect on how you pay for the ticket.

I think the yearly fee for the card & halbtax gets charged to the card itself though, so you will still get at least 1 bill/year from them.
