MBNA Promotional Offers

I am an existing Virgin Credit Card holders. Does anyone know how regularly existing customers are offered new promotional rates?

    When I log onto my account, it always says no offers are available.
    However, when I ring them to ask about an offer, they suddenly become available.

    Try ringing them.

    I get emails offering new 0% deals every few months.

    With Virgin, I didn't see offers online and didn't get anything by ringing them month after month last year, and eventually decided to give up and just close the account. A month later I saw a stream of people here apparently getting great offers. So it seems like maybe it comes and goes in waves? If I would have been patient for a couple more months I might have gotten something. Oh well, I'm more than halfway through the year's wait now so I'll be able to get a new customer offer soon. It's a bit of a gamble I suppose.

    I recall people on here saying that they have received offers from MBNA after balance transferred from their MBNA card to another card. It has certainly happened with me.

    I received an offer today for 0% balance transfer. Shame I have nothing to transfer. lol
    I hate their hideous 5% fee.
