    There is NOT a lot to chose from.

    I agree, everyone says this scheme is now a joke.

    The catalogue is just a pamphlet, there is nothing worth having but the 10% disounted vouchers.

    Given the inducement to spend using their card in the past, for real gifts (I remember the free Argos 5 voucher for 100 or 200 points I think it was) the fact they moved the goalposts soon after and made every offer one where you have to spend at a discount (that you often get anyway if you know where to look), is at least counterproductive if this "loyalty" scheme is intended to make customers love being with Lloyds TSB.

    In fact they should call it a customer losing scheme not a customer loyalty scheme.

    I only hold on to the card now to give me an emergency source of balance transfer if ever needed, and to avoid losing the years worth of points I built up, with the hope that one day they will develop a conscience.

    I even remember the cheeky "bar-stewards" sent a new card offer, where you could swap over to the new card, and in very small print in an obscure place in the conditions was the mention of the fact that all your OLD points would be WIPED OUT.

    What sort of FSA Treating-Customers-Fairly demonstration was that???

    Perhaps if Martin's mob approached the FSA about this particular points scheme, and the disgust most of us have for it, the FSA will do something about reinstating it as the old scheme was.

    But I doubt Lloyds could be made to now, especially as it is nearly belly-up with the newly acquired 11 billion drain-on-resources HBOS.

    Eric Daniels seems a decent bloke, perhaps a word in his shell-like would get things moving.

    No point in them spending on adverts on telly telling us how good they are to us customers, if a lot of us are going round telling relatives, friends, and social networks.

    Or is it just me getting too old?

    Over the years I accumulated a thousand or so of these points and have gradually been using them up to buy John Lewis vouchers, very useful as I was getting 100 worth of vouchers for 90 and 100 points. Effectively this gave me 10% discount on groceries at Waitrose. However TrustCard discontinued John Lewis vouchers last February. Does anyone know if they still issue Argos, Homebase and B&Q vouchers?

    It's old news but I bought a couple of hundred B&Q vouchers this way. When Woolworths shops folded we discovered the vouchers were issued by Woolworths Finance and I lost the lot.

    I had loads of points on mine but didn't use the card for a couple of years after they changed the rules for redeeming them. I'd almost forgotten I still had it! When it expired, they sent me a new card and, as I wasn't using the card, charged me 35 for it. When I cancelled the card, I lost the points and couldn't use the card but they kept the 35 charge on it. Two years later, they decided to charge me for not paying the charge imposed for not using the card and now ring me every couple of days demanding the money. So now they want 129 for NOT using the card! :confused:

    The annoying thing is that I'm a Lloyds shareholder (have been since it was TSB).

    trukdriver, that's awful, a complete rip-off.

    I've just called up to ask what I can get vouchers for now (my most recent leaflet being from Oct 2008) and was told that the ONLY deal they do now is on High Street Vouchers - which I guess means the Love2Shop ones. (Leaflet has been put in the post so I'll find out when it gets here.) So no more 10% off at Argos or M&S, which IMO were pretty much the only things that this voucher scheme had going for it. Going to redeem my points (or most of them) and then cancel the card.

    The vouchers don't make the most original Christmas presents but at least there's still a wide choice of places to use them, and I think I can be forgiven for lack of originality in Christmas shopping this year since I'm due to give birth in about 3 weeks' time!

    Got my leaflet through yesterday and it's not Love2Shop vouchers after all; the choice is now:

    Waterstones
    Argos
    HMV
    Debenhams
    Boots
    Bhs
    Homebase
    slh.com (Small Luxury Hotels)
    Leisure Vouchers
    PC World
    Currys / Currys.digital
    JJB Sports
    Laithwaites
    Mothercare
    Harrods
    Abercrombie & Kent
    Arcadia Group (Burtons, D Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Outfit, Top Shop/Man, Wallis)
    National Garden Gift Vouchers
    Habitat
    House of Fraser
    WHSmith

    So it's still for individual chains rather than a single voucher that can be redeeemed in lots of places, but I'm glad to see that at least Argos is still on there!

    P.S. As far as I'm aware, the vouchers can only be used instore, not for online purchases... but on the plus side, I think they still come as paper vouchers with no expiry date so you can split them up and give away small amounts rather than having just a single gift card with a time limit on it (or at least that was the case the last time I ordered them, which was a good few months ago now).

    You can also use the landline number 01273 799270 to redeem your points, though you do have to go through a few security hoops and then ask for the Trustcard Points Redemption Dept if you do it that way. If they offer to give you the direct line number rather than putting you through then decline unless you get free 0845 calls!

    Thanks for latest list - haven't been sent any leaflets for ages, probably because I hardly use this now but still have lots of these points from years ago. Just got some Argos vouchers - they have a 3 years expiry now which is better than before.

    Just ordered some more vouchers - Argos ones - and was told that they now have a 2-year expiry date. You can't specify the denominations but last time - which was probably 6-12 months ago - mine were all 10. (Can't remember how much I ordered - probably about 100 worth.) They were the new-style credit-card-sized vouchers (but card, not plastic) and I'm pretty sure there was no expiry date last time.

    Is the Trustcard Plus scheme still running? When I searched on Lloyds TSB web site it suggested it had been discontinued.

    Not running for new customers.
    Can I find out my credit score?
    You do not have a single credit score or rating. Different organisations take different information into account when working out your credit score and may have different scores for different products. (Kindly from Experian)
