Welcome on board
Once you've been accepted, your new MBNA card should arrive by post in 7 working days. In the meantime, here are some handy account management tips.
You don’t need to do anything if you made any balance or money transfers at the application stage. We’ll take care of them for you, and you’ll see the balance plus the transfer fees in the account summary section on your first statement. If we need more information, we’ll get in touch.
If you’ve not made a transfer yet, or have more you’d like to add, head to Online Card Services. Before you do that, you might want to check out our balance transfer and money transfer guides or watch our helpful video.
Transferring other more expensive debts to this card and paying only the minimum amount due each month may lower your overall monthly debt repayments, but it may take you longer and cost you more to repay what you owe.

Now your card's arrived it's time to get you up and running.

Registered for Online Card Services?
The easiest way to manage your card is using Online Card Services, where you can do everything from activating your card, making a payment to checking your statement. You’ll have to register first, so keep your card close-to-hand as you’ll need a few details from it.
Prefer doing things on the go?
If managing your credit card on the move is more your thing, try the MBNA Card Services App. To get started, you’ll need to download the app and log in using your Online Card Services details. Watch our video to learn more.
Available for Apple and Android smartphones or tablets.
Did you know you can add additional cardholders to your account? They’ll each get their own card and PIN to use. Just log into Online Card Services and do it from there.
You can share your credit card account and credit limit with anyone aged 18 or over, subject to status. Handy if you’d like to keep track of expenses on one card. As the main cardholder, you'll be responsible for any spending and making monthly payments.
