    "refit card"?

    If you want a new credit card then try the MSE eligibility checker, it will show you if you are potentially able to get any balance transfer cards.

    You'll need a non HSBC issued card.

    Unless this 'refit' card is actually a store card, in which case you need a money transfer card.


  • it’s not a store card just have to get another card thankyou

    Pretty much any other card works in the same way as a credit card, though other cards do not offer M&S vouchers as rewards for your spend. 
    if anybody been through this themselves…
    I am not really sure what you mean by this "been through" having to apply for a new credit card?

    As I said in my original reply, use the MSE eligibility checker to see if you can get any balance transfer cards, if you can then apply for one and complete the balance transfer. 

    You have still not explained what a "refit card" is?

    The M&S card is owned by HSBC, which is why you can't transfer from one to the other.  This is noted on their website at the bottom under "Additional Information" : https://www.hsbc.co.uk/credit-cards/products/balance-transfer/#how-to-apply

    This is pretty much standard practice for all cards - you can't transfer from one card to another that's owned by the same group.  If you look on the MSE article under "Which balance transfer card is best for me", there's a link to "Same bank/group" that shows you who owns what cards : https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/credit-cards/balance-transfer-credit-cards/

    In most cases it's just a case of seeing what card you're eligible for, checking that it's not part of the same group, then applying for it.

    Wild guess: Autocorrect changed "credit" into "refit"?
