    The limit on on Sainsbury's card is 3,000.

    Sainsbury's told me that they didn't recognise the credit card account number. I've just realised that the Capital One credit card I got was through I've searched online and apparently Shop Direct Finance Company Limited acts as the credit broker for the Very Credit Card and Capital One is the lender.

    Is there anyway around this?

    I am really upset and angry that Sainsburys have lost my passport and wish I had sent another form of ID. My husband died last May and all of our holidays were in it - I have now got to go through all the faff of getting a new one.

    They are saying they sent it back - all I received was my council tax bill - which wasn't accepted because my name isn't shown in full. Looking at my bills, my name isn't in full on any of them. It does not say on their information to send a bill where your name is showing in full - they need to clarify this.

    I got the council tax bill back by signed for last Wednesday and rang them to say my passport wasn't with it but the letter referred to 'these originals' - I was told they had to email another department who would not be able to respond for several days, and I should ring back this week. I said it wasn't good enough and rang back yesterday.

    They say they did send the passport back - so my passport is lost. It wasn't in the flimsy envelope, which was split. I have cancelled my passport and am awaiting further information.

    I am very disappointed with their organisation already.

    Not good enough.

    Credit Card Transfers
    My father passed away a week ago and the company he did the credit card transfer with are asking my sister who lived with him and shared the mortgage payments to take over the debt. Can they do this?

    Sorry for your loss.

    Any debts of your father's must be settled from his estate before any residual assets are distributed. If he shared a property and mortgage with your sister then what happens next is determined by the way the legal arrangements were set up, e.g. whether they were 'tenants in common' or not - the best thing will be for your sister to ascertain this and if any assistance is needed then post on the cheerily-titled death, funerals and probate board.

    Transferring to a previous lender
    Hi all,

    Not sure if this has already been covered but haven't seen it & apologies in advance.....
    This is an area that has always caused me some confusion, I know unless the current provider offers you balance transfer offers to transfer existing debt you cant transfer between different cards with the same provider. But if you have previously used the provider but closed the account or have another active card with them can you re-use that provider to transfer a balance from another? As the best rates for me are providers I've previously used or even am currently using as I have a number of cards. But a couple are at the end of the 0% and I need to transfer again and not sure if I can use ie Barclaycard to transfer an MBNA balance as currently have one active card with Barclaycard (albeit need to transfer this anyway).

    I've also just bought a house & moved in last week. Not sure if I should hold off a little while before applying? Whether this will impact my likelihood of being accepted, however I have gone from renting to a mortgage which surely shows more stability?

    You could try. If rejected, leave it 3 months.

    A mortgage may surely show more stability, but it may also surely show a potential drain on finances.
