What do you know about MBNA?
We’ve been issuing credit cards in the UK since 1993, helping our customers to make good stuff happen.
A little history lesson.
(including the origins of the name ‘MBNA’)
Boringly good credit experts
Over the years we’ve helped millions of customers with their borrowing needs... from emergency repairs to unexpected bills, MBNA credit cards have been there helping to make good stuff happen. We love a bit of technology too. All the stuff that makes contactless payments possible, transfers speedier and mobile apps more useful.
We’ve made applying for a card smarter with Clever Check, our credit card eligibility checker. In just a few minutes see the MBNA credit cards you’re eligible to apply for, your estimated credit limit and likelihood of being accepted - all without affecting your credit rating.
Thanks to our customers
We’ve won many industry accolades over the years and it’s great to be recognised by our peers, but there’s a big award that’s voted for by our customers. That one feels pretty special to us.
We’re super-proud to have been voted Moneyfacts Consumer Credit Card Provider of the Year six consecutive times... 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Supporting good stuff
MBNA are also principal sponsor of Storyhouse, a home for culture in Chester, housing a theatre, cinema and library.
After 4 years of careful development, this facility opened in 2017, creating a modern space for our community to meet, create and be entertained. It’s now possible to enjoy home grown theatre, see a touring play, world class cinema or just pop in for a coffee and a browse. All in the heart of historic Chester.
