Default How do i cancel Tesco Credit Card

I am due to clear my balance on Tesco Credit Card (yay!) and want to completely cancel the card. I paid the card off previously and thought i had fully closed the card, only to find out i could still use it and managed to get myself back in debt on it, this time i want to be fully cancelled with no chance at all of being able to re-use the card.

I have checked on the website but cannot see anything about cancelling the card (suprise, suprise). Does anyone know where i write to or who i can contact?

Many thanks

JP

If you cut it in two then you can't use it.

But when the card that has been cut in 2 reaches it's expiry date, they will send out a new card and also when it's been cut in two and not fully cancelled there is always the option of ringing and requesting a new card, i do not want that option.

I will write to the address provided above - thanks.
