Additional card holders
You can share the benefits of your MBNA credit card by adding up to three additional cardholders to your account. It’s a great way to give members of your family access to your credit limit yet keep an eye on spending. Remember that credit card transactions and charges made to additional cardholder(s) must reside at the same primary address and have a relationship of a close family member (defined as spouse, child, parent, sibling or domestic partner).
Contactless credit cards
Contactless payments mean you don’t need to insert your card or enter your PIN, so the transaction is much quicker for purchases of £20 and under. Wherever you see the contactless symbol, just hold your credit card up to the reader and wait for the green light. For more information view our guide to contactless.
You can withdraw cash with your MBNA credit card from cash machines throughout the world. You can also withdraw money from over the counter at a bank, building society or bureau de change (handling fee applies).

Take the hassle out of remembering to pay your subscriptions by setting up a Continuous Authority Transaction. This is an agreement between you and your merchant that allows the merchant to deduct regular payments from your MBNA credit card account in accordance with your authority, for example Satellite subscriptions or Insurances. It’s easy and quick to do and requires no further action unless you wish to cancel your subscription. If you need to cancel this agreement with the merchant it is a good idea to do so in writing to them and keep a copy for your own records. We can help stop a recurring payment, but always suggest that it is good practice to tell the merchant directly as well.
*Please note: all benefits will be subject to the type of card you apply for and your credit rating in some instances:
