A few points to remember

  • If you have regular transactions set up, like insurance premiums or subscriptions, please contact the providers as soon as possible to give them your new card payment details – just as soon as you have them.
  • If you’ve added your credit card details to a mobile device, like a Smartphone, ready to use when paying in shops and apps, you’ll need to update those details when your new card has arrived.
  • You still have to make your monthly payments on your genuine account balance.
