Making a change to your account

Need to change something on your credit card account? Some changes you can make online but some you’ll need to make by post or in branch. Here’s our guide.

  • 1.
    Add, amend or remove a cardholder

    You can share your credit card account with anyone aged 18 or over, subject to application. As the main cardholder, you're responsible for all spending on the card and for making the monthly payments.

    Only the main cardholder will be able to view the credit card account online.

    If you remove an additional cardholder, you are responsible for their card until it has been destroyed. If you can’t get the card back, please call us.

    How to change cardholder details

    Log in to or register for Internet Banking. Click the ‘More actions’ button next to your credit card, then select ‘Account services’.

    Or call us on 0345 964 5645 (Mon-Sun, 7am - 11pm).

    Change your credit limit

    To request a credit limit increase, you’ll need a payment history of at least six months on your account. We’ll only offer you an increase if we think you can afford it. You can ask to lower your credit limit at any time.

    We may sometimes write to you to offer a credit limit increase. You’ll have at least 30 days’ notice before the change happens automatically. If you don’t want the increase, call us on 0345 964 5645 (Mon-Sun, 7am - 11pm) before the date your limit is due to change.

    If you’d prefer not to receive these offers in future, let us know by calling 0345 964 5645 (Mon-Sun, 7am - 11pm). You can call us to change this preference any time.

    How to change your credit limit

    Log in to or register for Internet Banking. Click the ‘More actions’ button next to your credit card, then select ‘Manage credit limit’.

    Or call us on 0345 964 5645 (Mon-Sun, 7am - 11pm).

    Change your PIN or get a reminder

    How to change or unlock your PIN

    You can change or unlock your PIN at any UK Cashpoint that shows the LINK symbol. If you think someone knows your PIN, you should change it straight away.

    How to get a PIN reminder

    If you've forgotten your PIN, you can request a reminder. This will be sent through the post and you’ll receive it in 3-5 working days.

    Log in to or register for Internet Banking. Select ‘Your account tools’, then ‘Replacement cards and PINs’.

    Or call us on 0345 964 5645 (Mon-Sun, 7am - 11pm). For security reasons, we can’t give you your PIN over the phone.

    Change your paper-free settings

    If you have Internet Banking, you can choose to receive a PDF statement each month instead of a paper statement. This cuts the clutter and means your statements are conveniently kept in one place. We’ll send you an email each month when your statement is ready for you to view.

    If you choose online statements, you’ll stop getting paper statements by post. You can change your mind and switch to paper statements at any time.

    How to change your paper-free settings

    Log in to or register for Internet Banking. Select ‘Your profile’ from the toolbar at the top of the page and choose your preferred paper-free setting.
